Home Instead East Devon has been placed among the Top 20 Home Care providers in the South West.

This is the eighth consecutive year by leading UK home care website, homecare.co.uk, and the company, which provides care, companionship, and support to local residents in the comfort of their own homes across the community – including Live-In care - is also one of just twelve domiciliary home care providers out of more than thirteen thousand across England, to have achieved a rating of ‘Outstanding in all five areas of inspection’ by the sector regulator, the Care Quality Commission.

This latest award recognises twenty of the top-rated home care providers in each region of the UK and is based on reviews from both residents, service users and family members, rating over eleven thousand providers. The homecare.co.uk site receives more than 2.5 million visits per year, and lists in excess of 50,000 reviews.

Home Instead Compliance Manager, Lucy Scott said: “We are always pleased to have our efforts acknowledged but when awards are given by those experiencing our care firsthand, it means the world to ourselves and our team. The Homecare.co.uk site is a trusted source of information for those seeking support, so it’s great to be considered so highly.”

“We pride ourselves on only ever providing care that’s good enough for our own Mum or Dad, and on being different. This latest award assures us that our best efforts are very much worthwhile.”

The company are also leading the way with regard to local recruitment by holding 5 Star Employer in Care status, and by being an Age-Friendly Employer, offering opportunities for employment, ongoing support and continued training and development for team members via their Personalised Career Pathways scheme.

Home Instead East Devon and Exeter have made a pledge to be an Age-Friendly Employer. The company is the first care provider in the south west to sign up to become a age-friendly employer.
