Our brilliant team of CAREGivers come from a wide range of backgrounds and with their varied life experiences, each bring their own character to the care of our Clients. Our CAREGivers are what makes Home Instead an exceptional home care provider, without them we would not be given the awards and recognition we have.
Each CAREGiver is carefully selected for their empathy and compassion and matched individually to the personality and interests of the Clients they assist. By drawing on the CAREGivers compassion and genuine desire to support members of their community, we can assure our clients that they have chosen the right company to provide excellent care.
Mike Keig - Managing Director
I am proud to be associated with Home Instead as Managing Director of the Weston-Super-Mare branch.
My career background has been in Engineering, and Sales Management. We moved to Bristol in 2003 for me to take a position as General Manager for company of 30 employees making furnaces and industrial ovens. I enjoyed this General Management position hugely as I’ve always been extremely passionate about supporting and developing a team for both the benefit of the company and an individual’s progression.
My passion for the Care Sector, however, particularly for the elderly, is rooted way back before I started my Engineering career. I was born and grew up in a residential home in Tavistock in Devon. My Mum ran it as a hotel and provided a fantastic experience for everyone that lived with us. I remember there was never a vacant room and a significant waiting list! My Mum is 90 this year, and loves the fact that with local support she is still living in Devon on her own, in her own house. She is the underlying inspiration for my want to run this business.
Luisa Keig – Finance Director
Following a career in graphic design and marketing, in 2010 I retrained as a cost and finance manager and have been running a successful cost management business ever since. So, although my role as a Finance Director seems a natural progression, the care sector is a departure for me. I am loving the industry though - feeling like we are really making a difference to people’s lives, every day, in everything we do, is wonderful! With a large extended family in Italy, where 3 generations within my family pretty much all still live with each other under one roof, life is extremely focused on keeping the older generations close, and at home. To be working with a company so focused on enabling others to do just that is very precious to me.
While the rest of our fantastic team are busy managing and co-ordinating our service, and our CAREGivers providing first-rate care, I see my role as ensuring the smooth running of the financial side of Home Instead and providing our client’s and CAREGivers clarity of information.
Vicky - Care Manager
Hello and welcome to our website. I am very happy to be working with Mike and Luisa in my home town and local community. I have worked in domiciliary care for many years now, during which time I have had a number of different roles, latterly working at the Home Instead office in Bristol. I am totally committed to providing a high quality care service that is responsive, reliable and that enables and encourages our clients to remain independent in their own homes for as long as possible.
I live in Weston with my partner Charlie and our two daughters Ella and Leila and our grandson Levi. I spend my spare time mostly with my family and friends. I love the outdoors and enjoy walking our dogs (two naughty Beagles) and gardening. I also love eating out and shopping – mostly for shoes!!!
Chrissy - Learning & Development Supervisor

In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my family, walking, having fun days out visiting stately homes and learning about how people lived in those days.
Natalie - Care Coordinator
Hello, I’m Natalie and I joined Home Instead in January 2020. My role is to coordinate our caregivers, scheduling visits to our clients and responding to changes in our client’s needs. I have worked within the social care industry for the past 10 years, I enjoy being able to make a positive difference to our clients and caregivers, and am passionate about promoting independence, equality, dignity and choice through providing the highest standards of person centered care.

Nikki - Marketing & Events
Hi, I'm Nikki. I joined the team as the Office Administrator in August 2016, and have recently moved over to a part time role as the Marketing Assistant and Events Coordinator. I really enjoy working for Home Instead WSM, every day is interesting and I am pleased to be involved with somewhere that has such great company values, and excellent reputation.
My new role includes organising fund raising events, integrating us with the local community, keeping our social media accounts up to date and producing job adverts and client care marketing materials.
Previously, I have worked as a Senior Care Assistant for 5 years, and most recently a QCF Diploma Assessor. I live locally in Weston. Hobbies include anything creative, belly dancing, home improvements, gardening and outdoor activities.
Laetitia - Recruitment Co-ordinator
I joined the Home Instead team in October 2018 as the recruitment co-ordinator. I’m delighted to have joined this friendly, caring team.
I enjoyed working as a live-in carer for several years and now I’m happy to put my suitcase away and go home to my husband and cat every evening, whilst continuing to work in the care industry, which I’ve come to love.
Theresa - Administrator (mornings only)
I am thrilled to have recently joined Home Instead, Weston, as administrator. My career background lies in care, predominantly within the NHS, both in nursing and admin fields.
I spend much of my spare time in my wellies, running after my two large dogs, around the local parks and woods. I have recently taken on an allotment plot and eagerly await some homemade produce to share with my family/friends!
