Growing old can bring challenges, both for the person who’s ageing and for their family. It can be frustrating for our loved ones because they can’t do everything they used to and feel like they’re losing their independence. At the same time, it might be worrying for their family as they might not be able to be there whenever their loved ones need them.

I’m sad to share the news that our General Manager, Daphne Ellis, will be retiring on 30th April. I am sure you will join me in wishing Daphne well for her retirement. Daphne joined Home Instead in 2015 and she has made a valuable contribution to our organisation in the 6 years she has been leading the team. As the owner of Home Instead in York and Scarborough, I will be getting more involved in the day to day operation of the business and work more closely with the team. Although we have been providing our service for 12 years now, there is still plenty of opportunity to grow and improve. I am as passionate as ever about building an outstanding service and a successful business, so Daphne’s retirement seemed like an opportunity to get more closely involved with the business I started in 2008. I am some way off retirement myself and there is lots more I want to achieve for Home Instead. Over the last 2 years my wife and I have both experienced the process of finding care fo

You may have seen our advert on ITV, sponsoring Love Your Garden recently. To celebrate and encourage our clients and CAREGivers to get out into their gardens to enjoy some of that glorious spring sunshine, we enclosed in with every printed copy of our monthly newsletters, The Elder & The Companion a packet of sunflower seeds to plant. We are really looking forward to seeing our clients, CAREGivers and their families getting involved and have asked them to send photos across of them out in the garden, planting the seeds and of course any flower growth along the way. Included along with every packet are some growing tips, to help those sunflowers grow strong and tall. Who know’s, maybe we will host our very own sunflower competition over the summer, with a couple of prizes for the tallest sunflowers!
With winter well behind us, spring bringing new hope (we need it this year more than ever) and the prospect of summer to look forward to, we are delighted to be partnering once again with ITV to be the sole programme sponsor for Spring Into Summer, a primetime show that features advice on making the most of this time of year and the outdoors. This latest initiative follows our recent sponsorship of ITV’s popular primetime show, Love Your Garden. Through short films (known as TV idents), the sponsorship will allow us to continue to raise awareness of home care and the really positive impact it can have on a person’s life. These idents will appear at the start and end of each segment of the show. The first show of Spring Into Summer airs on April 5th at 8pm. This will be the first in a series of nine 30 minute episodes. Each show will feature celebrity guests and experts with a focus on celebrating being allowed back outside and making the most of our outdoor space. The show will
