The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Your Telegraph - By Paul Grin­nell paul.grin­ Twit­ter: @PTPaulGrin­nell

A lo­cal care com­pany based in Peter­bor­ough that spe­cialises in care at home for older peo­ple is set to cre­ate 20 jobs. Home In­stead Se­nior Care, in Swan Court, in Cygnet Park, Hamp­ton, has un­veiled plans to grow its team over the next 12 months in a bid to cope with grow­ing de­mand for its ser­vices.

The an­nounce­ment comes as the com­pany cel­e­brates its fifth an­niver­sary.

Di­rec­tor, Amy Kennedy, said: “I feel we have be­come a well-es­tab­lished busi­ness in the Peter­bor­ough area, after be­ing based here for five years now.

“I’m ex­tremely proud of our rep­u­ta­tion in the lo­cal com­mu­nity, which has seen us achieve con­sis­tent ‘good’ rat­ings from CQC, the care sec­tor’s watch­dog.

“We are also now a size able em­ployer in Peter­bor­ough with over 70 per­ma­nent mem­bers of staff on our books .”

She said the next five years were set to be ex­cit­ing ones for the com­pany as it pre­pares to in­vest in the of­fice team and look to tech­no­log­i­cal ad­vance­ments to help en­hance its range of ser­vices.

The firm has just started to trial a live web chat ser­vice for peo­ple ei­ther look­ing for work or want­ing to en­quire about care ser­vice for friends and fam­ily.

Amy added: “So­cial care is cur­rently go­ing through a sig­nif­i­cant pe­riod of change and growth, lead­ing to a broader range of im­proved job op­por­tu­ni­ties in the sec­tor.

She added: “Although our care­givers come from a hugely var­ied back­ground, the one thing they have in com­mon is that they all have a real pas­sion for help­ing oth­ers and gen­uinely car­ing for peo­ple in our lo­cal com­mu­ni­ties.”

CEL­E­BRAT­ING: Phil and AmyKennedy mark the fifth an­niver­sary of HomeIn­stead.
