Home Instead - Finalist in European Business Awards!

Jun 06, 2012
Home Instead Senior Care named as a finalist in the 2012 European Business Awards!
Having competed with over 15,000 of Europe’s most innovative and entrepreneurial businesses and after what the organisers referred to as “the toughest first round of judging ever experienced by a judging panel at the European Business Awards,”  Home Instead Senior Care has been named as a National Finalist in the 2012 European Business Awards!  

The rigorous judging process sees the second round of the competition take place between 6th and 25th September to be followed by a third round and then face-to-face presentations. The names of the Award Winners will be revealed as Europe’s top businesses at a gala awards ceremony in April 2013.

From the initial 15,000 just 627 finalists from across Europe have made it through to the second round.   This Round sees the National Finalists judged on a video presentation by a panel made up of experts from their own region as well as Europe-wide business leaders, academics and entrepreneurs.  

Adrian Tripp, CEO of the European Business Awards says, “This is the first year that the European Business Awards has introduced the National Finalists phase of the judging process. This new selection process was introduced for two main reasons; first, it gives entrants a greater opportunity to see their achievements recognised in front of peers, politicians and media within their own countries and second, it gives the judges greater access to the organisations in order to determine a more accurate picture of the very best in European business. As organisers of the awards, we believe this improved strategy further positions the European Business Awards as the most respected and significant awards programme in Europe.”

Ed Murphy, Chief Executive, Home Instead Senior Care, says, “We are delighted to be named as a finalist in these prestigious Awards.  We truly believe that, as the number one home care provider in Ireland, we make a significant difference in the lives of older people in the local community. Through our 2,000+ CAREGivers throughout Ireland, we provide a range of services from Companionship to Respite Care at Home through to Dementia/Alzheimer Care.  Our educational and training programmes for CAREGivers and Health Care Professionals help ensure they are up to date on the latest thinking and best practice in terms of caring for the elderly. Later this year, we will be extending our education reach when we run a number of workshops around the country for family members caring for someone with Alzheimers or Dementia.”
