Home Instead Senior Care, a company specialising in care at home for older people in Taunton & West Somerset, has been honoured with a Best Employer in Care Award.
The accolade of 4 Star Employer was awarded by WorkBuzz (formerly Smith + Henderson), an independent company which conducted surveys with Home Instead’s customers and employees.
In response to the independent survey, one caregiver employed by Home Instead Taunton & West Somerset said, “I love my job, the people I work with are amazing and I always look forward to getting up and making a positive difference to my client’s lives.”
Home Instead’s caregivers are matched with clients that share their interests, with the visits lasting 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 WorkBuzz (formerly Smith + Henderson), the awards organisers said, “We would like to congratulate Home Instead Senior Care Taunton & West Somerset on being a 4 Star Employer. What makes this award extra special is that it’s based on feedback from thousands of their caregivers and is only awarded to the top 10% of companies that enter the Best Employers in Care Awards”
“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.”
Commenting on the recognition her company has received, Vanessa Munson, co-owner of Home Instead Senior Care Taunton & West Somerset, said: “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.”
