Winter is always a time where snowfall is a possibility and we all know that Sheffield could come to a near standstill. Home Instead Sheffield has been well equipped with a brilliant group of CAREGivers to overcome the recent snowy periods.
We provide Companionship, Home Help and Personal Care to individuals within their own homes in order to maintain their independence. With medication reminders and minimum 2 hour calls, it is essential we get to our clients.
Luckily we have CAREGivers who are kind, caring and passion about what they do and strive to reach their clients. What is even more impressive is that even through this poor weather, 95.33% of our calls have been attended within 15 minutes of the scheduled call time.
We have recently collected stories about what our CAREGivers have done in order to reach their clients and the feedback has been phenomenal. We can’t thank our CAREGivers enough for their effort and we want them to know we are truly grateful.
Here are just a handful of our stories:
• We would first of all like to thank Janet and her husband who drove twice to her calls and waited an hour to fetch her back.
• Margareth spent 15 minutes clearing the snow from her car and braved her icy road to get to her client; luckily the main roads were clear so Margareth got to her client safely.
• Lynne walked 2 miles to her client’s house as the weather prevented her from using her vehicle; Lynne knew it was important for her client to receive care so ensured this would happen!
• Although Angela hasn’t had many problems with the roads due to her schedule, she had problems on her clients drive and would like to thank the neighbour who helped as well as everyone who has helped clear the roads.
If you would like more information about our services, or would like to become one of our superhero CAREGivers, do not hesitate to call us on 0114 250 7709 or come and see us at our office.
