Debbie Ivanova, Deputy Chief Inspector for Adult Social Care (South), said:
“We were really impressed by the outstanding level of care and support people living in their own homes received from Home Instead Senior Care."

“People benefited from an organised service with excellent leadership. The service had a clear vision for providing high quality care where people were at the heart of the service, and this was clearly demonstrated through every aspect of the care provided."
“This service was a model for compassionate care. People were offered a minimum one hour visit which helped develop meaningful and positive relationships with staff who knew their individual needs."
“The provider was responsive to new ideas from staff, people using the service and relatives and worked with external agencies such as dementia specialists, to develop care and improve the quality of life for people they cared for."
“The team should be extremely proud of the work they do. I congratulate the staff at Home Instead Senior Care for achieving our highest rating.”
