HOME Instead Senior Care, a company specialising in care for older people in their own homes in Darlington and Northallerton, has been honoured with a ‘5 Star Employer’ award.

The accolade of 5 Star Employer was awarded by WorkBuzz, an independent company which conducted surveys with Home Instead’s caregivers and staff.

One caregiver employed by Home Instead Darlington said: “The best thing about working for Home Instead is that I truly have a great relationship with all my clients and feel I can really make a difference as I am given the right amount of time and support to be able to go above and beyond whilst caring for each client.”

Home Instead’s caregivers and employees are given access to award-winning training programmes which have been accredited by both City & Guilds and endorsed by the Princess Royal Training Awards. Employees are given opportunity for career progression and are part of a supportive valued-led team, meaning that great care is delivered to clients.

Steven Frost, CEO of WorkBuzz said: “The biggest challenge facing many organisations is recruiting and retaining the best talent. We would like to congratulate Home Instead Senior Care for its high levels of employee engagement. Its positive culture means that most employees are proud to work there, would choose to stay even if they were offered a similar job elsewhere, and are highly motivated.”

Diane Chandler, owner of Home Instead Senior Care, said: “We are incredibly proud to have achieved a 5 Star Employer 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 and the team in the office too.”
