A HOME care provider which is set to launch it services in Burnham-on-Sea has been honoured with a prestigious award.

Home Instead Senior Care was awarded the Best Employer in Care award and the five star employer award by WorkBuzz, an independent company which conducted surveys with Home Instead’s clients and employees.

The care service is set to extend its services to Burnham later this year and already operates in Weston-super-Mare and Taunton.

Speaking after the awards, Mike Keig, managing director of Home Instead Senior Care, said: “We are delighted with the amazing results and to be acknowledged as a best employer.

“We are even more pleased to be able to extend our range of services around the local area to help older people remain living independently at home.

“The award means so much because it was awarded as a result of feedback from our employees.

“This acknowledgement shows us that we are thankfully getting it right for both our team and clients.”
