Take Care Campaign

We recently launched our “Take Care” campaign which looks at

“Unsupported, under-appreciated, under pressure.” These are the words we hear from 88% of UK family carers neglecting their own health as they shoulder the care of ageing parents.

Our new ‘Take Care’ campaign explores these invisible struggles through the stories of Sue, Colin, and Fiona. You’re not alone—Home Instead is here to share the responsibility, so you don’t have to face it by yourself.

Watch our unapologetically raw film to see that it doesn’t have to be this way: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=54MWT8ENCOQ

Our Clients

Supporting individuals in the comfort of their own homes not only has the usual benefits of being able to provide the quality care that everybody deserves, but it also allows us to witness some amazing work like the lovely paintings on show. When stuck for inspiration, our Care Professionals would take in fruit or flowers. A testament to the exceptional care we pride ourselves on. We have a good understanding of what helps our clients feel at ease and relax in their own environment, and when this is done well, look at what can be achieved.

Memory Cafes

Collaborating with Fitnniss – Wellbeing in Care was an absolute pleasure, and we were delighted to invite them to one of our memory cafes for a brief demonstration. Fitnniss – Wellbeing in Care support people through exercise and mobility workshops designed to empower and uplift individuals in need, and it was great to hear a lot of positive feedback from our attendees. Excited to invite them back for future sessions.
