A local company that specialises in care at home for older people has received a Best Employer in Care Award.
Home Instead Senior Care Bexhill was awarded the accolade of 5 Star Employer by WorkBuzz, an independent company that conducted surveys with Home Instead’s customers and employees.
In response to the independent survey, one caregiver said: “I believe in the values and ethos of Home Instead Senior Care. Staff at all levels are committed to respecting the dignity and wishes of those they care for so that they can remain as independent as possible at home.”
Caroline Aherne, owner of Home Instead says its caregivers are matched with clients that share their interests. “Visits last for a minimum of one hour,“ she said. “As a result of this unique, person centred approach, clients receive an excellent standard of care and employees develop high levels of job satisfaction.
“We are incredibly proud to have achieved a Best Employer in Care Award. It means so much because it was awarded as a result of feedback from our employees.
“Person centred home care is our business and this acknowledgement proves that it works, not only for our clients, but for our caregivers too.”
Steven Frost, CEO of WorkBuzz said: “The care sector too often receives negative publicity – in contrast 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.”
