Congratulations to Sam Brocklebank and Trevor Brocklebank, their staff and the franchisees of Home Instead UK who recently won The Queen's Award for Enterprise in Innovation, the highest honor of any kind a business in the UK can receive. I think it's fair to say they're providing home care that's good enough for The Queen.
Extremely rare for a service company to receive this award, Home Instead UK received its royal recognition as a result of its national reputation for delivering dignified, quality in-home senior care that emphasizes relationship before task. This year's recipients were announced yesterday by Buckingham Palace on the occasion of Her Majesty The Queen's 90th birthday.
Among other privileges, receiving this award allows our colleagues in the UK to use The Queen's seal in its branding and marketing, which is essentially equivalent to her personal endorsement.
Sam and Trevor founded Home Instead UK in 2005 following a frustrating search for decent care when Trevor's grandfather Frank needed support.
Their approach to quality care has grown their business from a single pilot office to a network of 175 offices across the UK. As an award-winning home care franchisor, it has created a 'family' of business owners united in their mission "to change the face of ageing in the UK."
Today, nearly 8,000 people are employed by the UK Home Instead Senior Care network, which provides five million hours of relationship-based care to more than 8,000 seniors
Home Instead offers free monthly newsletters with tips and advice for caregivers of elderly loved ones.
Each Home Instead Senior Care franchise is independently owned and operated.
