A COMPANY specialising in at-home care for the elderly residents has won a top award.

Home Instead Senior Care, in Chorley New Road, has been named Best Employer in Care by independent survey firm WorkBuzz.

WorkBuzz praised the care company’s “unique, person centred” approach which matches clients with caregivers that share their interests and ensures all care visits lasting at least one hour.

Steve Williams, co-owner of Home Instead Senior Care Bolton, 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.”

Steven Frost, WorkBuzz CEO, added: “We would like to congratulate Home Instead Senior Care Bolton on being a 5 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.”
