They celebrated their first year in style, hosting a socially-distanced and Covid-safe party at their office. They invited care-givers to visit in individual slots to enjoy a slice of cake and a glass of bucks fizz.

Mrs Pennington said: “We were so excited to launch last year and although it has been an unusual year, we are delighted to say it has been a good one for us. Not only have we welcomed our daughter into our family, but our business has seen growth and success.

“The pandemic has somewhat heightened the demand for home care, as the health and safety benefits of seniors staying in their own homes has been highlighted. We have taken some fabulous clients on board, as well as witnessed our care-giving and office teams expand. We now have a wonderful group of people caring for our local elderly generation across Leigh and the neighbouring areas.

“We loved having the opportunity to thank our team for their hard work and dedication throughout the past year with our small office party. We look forward to celebrating altogether once restrictions have eased.”

Home Instead Leigh provide home care services across Leigh, Lowton, Ashton, Hindley Green and Tyldesley, ranging from home help and companionship to more specialist dementia and post-discharge care.
