Home care workers at Avelo Care in Westgate have won an award for being one of the Top 20 home care providers in South East England.
There are 1,804 home care providers in the South East and 11,856 home care providers in the UK.
The top home care providers received the award from reviews site for home care, www.homecare.co.uk, which hosts the awards to help people find care that is right for their needs, budget and location.
Nearly one million disabled and older people receive care at home so they can stay living independently in their own homes. This includes help with getting dressed, washed, preparing meals and drinks and administering medication.
With an ageing population, the number of people receiving home care is set to increase.
The award is based on the home care provider’s reviews from the people they care for, plus their friends and relatives.
Shaun Parr, managing director at Avelo Care, said: “Avelo Care have been named as winners of the Top 20 Homecare Provider Award for the South East Region. This is a fantastic achievement for the Avelo Care team and we are so thankful to our wonderful clients and our team of hugely committed care workers who have helped make this happen.
“We feel privileged to have received such a prestigious award and will be celebrating this accomplishment with our team and our supporters. 2023 has been a fantastic year for Avelo Care and we look forward to building on this year’s success as our services continue to grow and develop.”
Amanda Hopkins, reviews manager of homecare.co.uk, added: “Top quality home care is vital as it enables people to continue living in their own homes and to keep their independence.
“People who are less mobile due to illness, a disability or age can become hidden from society so their home care worker can play a crucial role in keeping them both mentally and physically well.
“Our reviews are by those who receive home care as well as their family and friends. This helps others to search for the right care provider, where compassion, trust and empathy are at the heart of their care. Avelo Care has shown it provides care of the highest quality and we would like to congratulate it on being one of the top home care providers in South East England”
