We were delighted to mark two major achievements in one go recently. A lovely client called Mary celebrated her 90th birthday and the CAREGiver, Sue, who visits her, has now been with Home Instead for 10 years !
Mary is very independent but as well as the love and support of her family she does like getting out and about to the supermarket to do her own shopping once a week with Sue.
Since joining Home Instead, Sue has been involved with many clients, ranging from clients such as Mary where they go out and about in the community, to supporting people with tasks of daily living such as getting up, washed, dressed, through to helping people and their families at the end of their lives.
It was wonderful to be able to go out and share this great opportunity with them both, as Melissa said “Sue has many skills and is full of compassion, she is very professional in all that she does and is a huge asset to the company and embodies all that we stand for at Home Instead”. We are always on the lookout for people like Sue and often they don’t see themselves as carers, but once they gain the confidence and knowledge they need they are amazing.
