|The Waterford Home Instead Senior Care Team|
Home Instead Senior Care has been shortlisted in the finals of the Ulster Bank Irish Franchise Association Awards in not one, but two, categories.
Home Instead Senior Care has been shortlisted in the Franchisee of the Year (Service) category and also Best Marketing Campaign.
The awards categories represent both retail and service industries and recognise excellence in franchising and reward outstanding achievements of businesses and individuals in the franchise industry.
Home Instead Senior Care, the world’s leading provider of non-medical, in-home services to seniors, with almost 1,000 branches throughout the world, opened its franchise office in Waterford in January 2009. To date the Waterford office has cared for over 800 clients, employs 70 CAREGivers along with an office support team of 7, including 3 nurses.
Danette Connolly, Director of Care, Home Instead Senior Care, is delighted with both nominations and said “To be nominated in both of these categories is a great endorsement of what we have been doing here in Waterford.”
“When my husband Michael and I brought the Home Instead franchise to Waterford almost five years ago, we knew we were bringing a well respected brand, dedicated to the provision of optimum home care to seniors. However, we like to think that we have also put our own mark on the senior care landscape in Waterford. We have a dedicated and passionate team of CAREGivers who genuinely go above and beyond the call of duty. I am energised every time I meet a client who has formed a close warm bond with their CAREGivers.”
The awards will be presented at a formal black-tie awards ceremony at The Clyde Court in Ballsbridge, Dublin on Friday October, 11th 2103. The Awards ceremony is one of the highlights of the much anticipated Ulster Bank Irish Franchising and Start-ups EXPO on October 11th and 12th at the RDS Dublin.
The award ceremony is expected to be an impressive business event reflecting the remarkable growth of the franchise sector in these challenging times. In fact the
Irish Franchise Association announced today that the largest ever number of entries was received for this year’s Franchise Awards.
Home Instead Senior Care offers an array of senior care services such as light housekeeping and laundry, meal preparation, transport and companionship, up to and including personal care, dementia care, post hospital care and disability care.
