“Our Clients and their families really appreciate the personal nature of our service and the difference we make on a daily basis.”

The award is based on the home care company’s reviews on homecare.co.uk, considered to be the ‘TripAdvisor for home care’.

The reviews are given by people that Home Instead cares for, plus their loved ones and Home Instead Wetherby and North Leeds made it to the exclusive list thanks to its impressively high review score of 9.9.

One review from a family member of a client, said: “Home Instead Wetherby provides home care for my elderly in-laws, four days a week.

“The professional care and service they provide are wonderful. They come in twice a day to meet all their requirements.

“The care and compassion they show on a daily basis are just what we, as a family with elderly parents, need.

“Knowing Home Instead is enabling them to live independently still means a lot to us all.”

Amanda Hopkins, reviews manager of homecare.co.uk, said: “Top quality home care is crucial as it enables people to continue living in their own homes and maintain their independence, with their home care worker often becoming their friend and companion.

“The past two years have been particularly hard for disabled and older people, as many were forced to self-isolate to protect themselves from Covid, with care workers playing a vital role in keeping them mentally and physically well.

“Our reviews are by those who receive home care as well as their family and friends.”
