High quality home care is crucial as it enables people to stay living in their own homes and keep their independence, with their home care worker often becoming their friend and companion as well as their lifeline to the outside world.

During the pandemic, their contribution has been invaluable as many vulnerable and elderly people have been forced to self-isolate and to some of these, care workers have been their only link with the rest of society. They have also been able to bring people living at home, food, and the medication they desperately need.

One of the reviews of Home Instead reads:

Home Instead Harrogate’s service goes way beyond purely practical needs. Management strategies appear well thought-out, and for the most part, highly client focused. Adaptation during the COVID-19 crisis has raised my impressions even further. Individual caregivers are truly exemplary and gold-standard – kind, patient and thoughtful, providing proactive care at a level one might otherwise expect only from family members. The service benefits not only my mother but the whole family who can be confident that she is receiving the best of care from the best of people.

Home Instead takes a unique, person-centred approach to home care, which benefits both clients and the team. Clients are supported to live as independently as possible, by caregivers that they come to know well and who visit for a minimum of an hour at a time.
