HOME Instead Senior Care, a company specialising in at-home care for older people in Dudley and surrounding areas, has been honoured with a Best Employer in Care Award.

The top accolade of 5 Star Employer was awarded by Smith and Henderson, an independent company that carries out customer and employee surveys, as a direct result of feedback from Home Instead’s caregivers.

In response to an independent survey undertaken by Smith and Henderson, one caregiver employed by Home Instead said: “Home Instead Senior Care is an incredible place to work. Seeing the difference we make in our client's and their families lives is unbelievably rewarding.

"Having enough time to deliver high quality care and ensure our clients are safe and happy in their own home is brilliant.”

Home Instead’s caregivers are matched with clients that share their interests and every care visit lasts for a minimum of one hour.

As a result of this unique, person centred approach, clients receive an excellent standard of care and employees develop high levels of job satisfaction.

Steven Frost, CEO of Smith and Henderson, organisers of the Best Employers in Care, said: “Home Instead Senior Care has a strong culture whereby caregivers have the right support and training, are well led and have a strong commitment to deliver outstanding care.”

Commenting on the award Julie Williams, co-owner of Home Instead Senior Care Dudley and Sandwell South, said: “Ian and I are thrilled and humbled to have been awarded a 5 Star Employer Award in the Best Employers in Care Awards. It means so much to us because we have received it as a direct result of comments and opinions received from our own incredible caregivers.”
