National Media coverage- '5 minute care calls'

‘5 minute care calls’ 

There has recently been national media coverage relating to the 200,000 plus ‘5 minute care calls’ in a 12 month period authorised by some local councils across the country.

ITV approached Home Instead Senior Care to provide a balance to the ‘bad news’ element of the story.

We provide a minimum of an hour care call which allows our CAREGivers the time to build rapport and a trusting relationship with our clients which in turn enables them to provide the highest quality care to the individual.
