CAREGiver of the Year Award 2020

We are proud to announce that Tina Harris is our 2020 CAREGiver of the Year at Home Instead Wrexham and Flintshire.

Each year this award goes to a CAREGiver who provides an outstanding service for our clients and goes above and beyond expectations. 

Tina is an absolute star, and epitomises Home Instead’s mission to ‘change the face of ageing.’ 

We regularly receive feedback from clients and their families about the amazing work that she does.  And to think that a couple of years ago Tina, had never even worked in care before!

Tina said “Two years ago I was made redundant from my job as a Retail Manager, where I’d worked for 38 years so it was a bit of a shock to the system!  A friend told me about Home Instead and to be honest at the time, I hadn’t heard of them, but when I looked them up, I really liked the sound of the role.  Having never worked in care before, I didn’t even know whether or not I’d be able to do it, but I’ve always loved working with people and that was a good starting point!

I’m so glad I took the plunge to do something different – I just never imagined that two years down the line I’d be receiving an award for CAREGiver of the Year, I couldn’t be prouder!   It might sound like a cliché but I absolutely love what I do, and I wouldn’t change it for anything!  After losing my job, this has brought so much positivity into my life.  It makes me smile to think that we make a difference to someone’s life and create opportunities for them to continue living in their own home.  The companionship element that we have at Home Instead is marvellous – it brightens up my day as much as it does for my clients.  It’s also been great to get to know the families too, having the time to build that relationship with them is so important.  

Thank you so much for nominating me for this award and for making me even prouder of the work that we all do!”
