Home Instead Calderdale has received a prestigious award by a national reviews website, having been named one of the top 20 home care companies in Yorkshire and Humberside and in the top 3% of home care companies in the region. They have made it onto the impressive list out of 796 home care companies and this is the fourth time they have won this award.
The award is based on the home care company’s reviews on homecare.co.uk, the UK’s top home care reviews site considered to be the ‘TripAdvisor for home care’. The reviews are given by people that Home Instead cares for, plus their loved ones. Home Instead Calderdale made it to the exclusive list thanks to its impressively high review score of 9.9.
One heart-warming review from a family member of a client, appearing on homecare.co.uk, is as follows: “The carers were lovely and looked after my mum very well. We really appreciate the efforts made to have the minimum number of staff on the care rota, and to have a primary carer, so that personal relationships and trust were formed. This really made a difference and it made it a very personal service. All the staff were friendly, helpful and professional and we felt that they genuinely cared. Thank you so much.”
Naomi Lanigan, Registered Manager of Home Instead Calderdale, said: “We are delighted to receive this award again. The positive reviews we receive are down to the dedication, commitment and genuine care taken by our fantastic Care Professionals and our office team. We spend a lot of time making sure our clients are happy and working with families to tailor our service to their loved ones needs.”
Amanda Hopkins, reviews manager of homecare.co.uk, said: “Top quality home care is crucial as it enables people to continue living in their own homes and maintain their independence, with their home care worker often becoming their friend and companion.
“The past two years have been particularly hard for disabled and older people, as many were forced to self-isolate to protect themselves from Covid, with care workers playing a vital role in keeping them mentally and physically well.
“Our reviews are by those who receive home care as well as their family and friends. This helps others to search for the right care provider, where compassion, trust and empathy are at the heart of their care.”
“Home Instead Calderdale has shown it provides care of the highest quality and we would like to congratulate it on being one of the top home care providers in Yorkshire and Humberside”
Home Instead Calderdale provides a wide range of care services, including personal care, including help with dressing and bathing, dementia care and companionship care.
The company is looking for caring people to join its team and become a Care Professional. New recruits don’t necessarily need previous sector experience; the most important attributes are a kind heart and the desire to make a difference.
