Home Instead Maidstone Senior Care is owned by local brothers Mark and Andy Craig.

 

Mark and Andy have been the owners of a successful frozen food and grocery home delivery service for older people for the last 12 years and during that time they have seen inconsistent and often very poor levels of care being provided to their customers in their own homes.

 

They saw an opportunity with Home Instead Senior Care to provide a high quality, bespoke, “needs lead” service that will make a real difference to the quality of people’s lives, focusing on the client and what they want and need in order to lead a happy and fulfilling life.

 

The Home Instead Senior Care service is responsive and reliable, providing highly trained CAREGivers who are carefully matched to clients needs. Providing a range of services from full personal care 7 days a week, helping with household chores and meal preparation a few times a week, to companionship for just a couple of hours a week, in fact whatever the client needs. All CAREGivers own their own car and are insured to take clients on trips to the shops, the theatre or any days out.
