We're Winners: Leeds Quality in Care Awards
The delayed 2020 annual Leeds Quality in Care awards were celebrated in December 2021, highlighting the excellent work taking place across the sector and shone a light on those individuals and services that have made a real difference over the past two years.
Representing the excellence throughout the Leeds adult care sector, the award winners and finalists have all strived above and beyond in ensuring Leeds is an age friendly city.
There were 10 awards in total which were presented at a ceremony live streamed from The Carriageworks Theatre.
Councillor Fiona Venner, executive member for adults and children’s social care and health partnerships, said: “The Quality in Care Awards represent the excellent level of service provided across the adult care sector in Leeds. I would like to personally thank all the finalists for going above and beyond in delivering excellent care for their customers. It has undoubtedly been a tough 20 months for the sector and I hope this award ceremony allowed individuals and services to reflect back on the amazing things they have achieved.”
We're proud to announce that Home Instead Wetherby & North Leeds were the recipients of Best Recruitment and Retention initiative!
Our CAREGivers are hand-picked for their character and values and are expertly trained to support older people and their families. We do this to ensure we can closely match their interests, hobbies and personality with our clients and they can become the friendly faces they’ll grow to know and trust. Our CAREGivers truly believe in what we do and that’s why 96% say they are proud to work at Home Instead. We strongly believe in the benefits of relationship-led care, so we’ll ensure that they see the same familiar faces every time. This means that not only can they build, trust and establish a friendly relationship, but their CAREGiver will be able to monitor changes that might affect health or even prevent worsening health conditions.
There’s no doubt that recent times have highlighted the fantastic work of individuals in the care sector. Without the dedication of people across the industry, our elderly and vulnerable population aren’t able to live safe and happy lives.
