Here at Acorn we are very impressed with the work done for the elderly in our community by Home Instead Senior Care and they are looking for compassionate individuals to join their team. Home Instead Senior Care specialises in providing at-home care and companionship to older people in their homes, it is a world leading home care provider with over 150 offices around the country. A local lady, Vanessa Munson runs the branch here in Taunton & West Somerset.
Vanessa, like her parents, is local to the West Somerset area. Having seen her own grandmother’s health deteriorate rapidly when she was forced to leave her own home, Vanessa is committed to providing a service that allows people to remain living independently in their own homes for as long as possible. With the help of her Care Manager, Fran Bradshaw, she is extremely proud to be bringing Home Instead Senior Care to the local area, which will provide a flexible, reliable and high quality care service to people throughout the Taunton & West Somerset community.
With a background in counselling and a keen business sense, Vanessa added, “I’ve always been interested in making a positive difference to people’s lives and their wellbeing and this is what lead me to train as a counsellor. I have worked in a number of schools and colleges across the Taunton area. I thoroughly enjoyed my work and now I am keen to run a business which allows me to give something back and make a real difference to the elderly in our community”.
“Having met owners of a neighbouring Home Instead office, it was great to see their genuine passion and enthusiasm in caring for older people in their community and it really made an impression on me. Often nowadays families are distanced due to work and other commitments and it is hugely reassuring to know that we can offer the quality of service that we would like for our own families.”
Vanessa is enjoying working with Fran, whose career in care began 5 years ago, when her partner suffered a life changing stroke. Fran explained, “I understand the difficulties that people face in trying to find the right sort of care for themselves or their loved ones and I’m excited about providing a service that I truly believe in.”.”
With a shared vision and passion to bring a high quality person centred care service to the area, Vanessa and Fran are looking to find caring and compassionate individuals to join their team, who can support and make a difference to the lives of older people in the local community.
