A WARRINGTON company has just celebrated opening its 250th office.

Home Instead UK, based in Lower Stretton, makes it possible for older people to stay living at home while receiving care crucial to their health and wellbeing.

It was founded 18 years ago, and now it is celebrating a key milestone in its history.

Some of the team and various franchise owners from around the country gathered at Delamere Manor in Cuddington where everyone raised a glass to the business’ successful growth.

Owners of the 250th franchise office, Suzie and Rob Stanton from Home Instead Mansfield attended along with the owners of the very first franchise, Rob and Bryn Evans from Home Instead Sheffield and Barnsley.

Speaking at the event, CEO UK & International, Martin Jones MBE recalled celebrating the brand’s 200th office opening which took place at Chester Cathedral in 2019 and the 100th office celebration in 2012 at the world famous Jodrell Bank Centre in Cheshire.

He said: “We have grown significantly as a business but our reason for being hasn’t changed.

“Our mission to increase the world’s capacity to care is what unites us and what drives us to deliver quality care which keeps people in their own homes and supports their families.

“As society grapples with our ageing population, home care becomes even more relevant.

“We will continue to work to better understand the needs of our clients and their families, to adapt our model and grow our service offering to ensure that we continue to lead from the front.”
