The Manchester based ‘at-home’ care provider, Home Instead, who specialise in caring for the elderly in their own homes, has had its excellent work rewarded by receiving approval and accreditation from the independent healthcare regulator, The Care Quality Commission (CQC), to provide its services in Stretford, Levenshulme, Ardwick, Moss Side, Hulme, Didsbury, Chorlton, Burnage and Trafford.
CQC accreditation is required by all providers of health and adult social care in England.
It ensures that companies such as Home Instead provide services of the highest quality to help older people continue to lead independent lives in their own homes.
Tracey Chuwen who set up the Manchester office in June 2010, explains:
“This is a quality stamp that provides reassurance to our clients and of course potential clients. It shows that we respond to their individual needs and that we are a trusted and reliable source of care services for people in their own homes. We are passionately committed to providing the highest levels of care and accreditation bears testament to the dedication of our team, which includes our fantastic caregivers.”
She continues: “The service we provide is tailored to the needs of individual clients ranging from simple tasks such as helping someone with their shopping to more complex care packages and respite care.”
