Care and the community with Clare Cliff of Home Instead

Clare Cliff has worked as a care worker and in the care sector since leaving school, its more than just a career for her, it’s a passion. From studying Health and Social Care at college, to watching her parents in their careers and the roles within their community, this is all Clare has ever wanted to do, so much so that she marks her biggest success as the passion she has for her career.

Clare is general manager at Stockport’s Home Instead Franchise. She has worked with them for the last 5 years and progressed her way through the business. The franchise is owned by local residents, offers care to a large number in the community and also provides employment to nearly 100. This organisation is right at the heart of Stockport’s community.

Clare talks about the work the business do and how they provide care to all ages, as well as respite for carers. They are clearly doing a fantastic job and are also being recognised for their work. A number of employees have recently been nominated for awards both locally and nationally.

One of the things Clare spoke to me about was that as a care provider, Home Instead ensure they are trusted within the community, they support local, they network with local business owners, they are seen around the area, creating a trusted and recognised brand within Stockport.
