Couple’s new venture to care for elderly

Posted onPosted on 19th Jul

An entrepreneurial couple have begun a new chapter in their business journey, setting up a home care company and extending the support they provide to older people who want to stay living in their own homes.

For four years, Suzie Leeson and Rob Stanton have run a ready meals delivery business for elderly people, a Wiltshire Farm Foods franchise.

The Farnsfield couple realised that having the option to be able to continue living at home is important for so many older people — it’s a place of familiarity and a source of comfort.

Suzie and Rob wanted to make this a reality for more local older people who need home care, so decided to set up the franchise Home Instead Mansfield — and create new jobs.

Home Instead, based on Ransom Wood Business Park, Mansfield, will deliver personal care, such as help with dressing and bathing, companionship care, and home help, including light housekeeping. Clients are matched to their care professional based on shared interests, helping them bond and become genuine companions.

Care is available for people across the Mansfield area, from Sutton in the west to Bilsthorpe in the east.

Suzie said: “My partner and I have enjoyed supporting the needs of older people in our business ventures. We have learnt what challenges they can face and what many of them want or need in the way of support.

“I’m excited about helping our local older generation and, of course their families, as well as the wider community.”

Rob added: “We look forward to doing more than offering home care to local residents. We also plan to support local groups that help older people live the life that they deserve.

“There’s no escaping that we’re an ageing population, and we look forward to making old age a positive time, using the experiences we have of working with ageing adults.”

Home Instead Mansfield is expecting to create at least 50 new jobs and would like to hear from members of the community interested in becoming a care professional.

Suzie and Rob are on the lookout for kind and compassionate people who may be interested in joining the company.
