Home Instead Senior Care was named one of eleven National Winners from 77 businesses representing the "Ones to Watch" in Ireland at an event held at the British Ambassador’s residence in Dublin for The European

Business Awards, Europe’s largest business competition, sponsored by RSM.

Home Instead Senior Care was chosen by a panel of independent judges including senior business leaders, politicians and academics as the best in their country in the Awards’ category of Social Responsibility and Environmental Awareness Award and will now go on to represent their country in this category in the final stage of the competition.

Ed Murphy, Founder of Home Instead Senior Care in Ireland said: "We’re very proud to be selected to represent Ireland as a National Champion. The European Business Awards is widely recognised as the showcase for Europe’s most dynamic companies and we are now looking forward to the next round of the judging process where we can explain in more depth how we are achieving making home care services a popular care option in Ireland."

Adrian Tripp, CEO of the European Business Awards said: "This is an amazing achievement and Home Instead Senior Care is clearly a stand out leader in their field. To be a National Winner means you represent our core values of success, ethics and innovation and are one of the best in Europe."

The National Winners from each country will face further judging in their chosen category, and the final Category Winners will be announced at the European Business Awards Gala Final in Warsaw, Poland in May 2018.

Danette Connolly, Director of Care, Home Instead Waterford, said the reward was an endorsement of the company’s dedication to providing outstanding home care. "The Home Instead ethos is one that puts the needs of seniors and their families at the forefront. To be recognised locally, nationally and now internationally, in the company of some of Europe’s most dynamic companies is extremely gratifying and we are honoured to represent Ireland in the European Final."

The European Business Awards is now in its 11th year and its primary purpose is to support the development of a stronger and more successful business community throughout Europe. Last year it engaged with over 33,000 businesses from 34 countries. Sponsors and partners include RSM, ELITE and PR Newswire.
