Belong at Home has launched in Altrincham, Greater Manchester, in a move that will see the creation of new jobs in the area as the service develops.
Also covering surrounding areas such as Hale Barns, Bowdon, Timperley and Sale, the service has already recruited its first team members and will continue Belong at Home’s approach of local people providing local services.
Belong at Home tailors its packages to individual needs, with support ranging from assisting people with daily living and domestic chores in the home to going out in the community, whether to attend appointments, pursue hobbies, or enjoy days out. With rigorous selection, allocation and training processes to promote relationship-based care, Belong at Home staff are highly trained to provide specialist support for people with dementia.
The home care service already operates across the North West, with services in Atherton, Crewe, Didsbury, Macclesfield, Newcastle-under-Lyme, Wigan and Warrington, all of which are rated ‘Good’ by the Care Quality Commission (CQC). It was recently named as one of the top 20 home care groups in the North West by Homecare.co.uk, based on reviews from customers of the service and their relations.
Jo Ball, Belong at Home Operations Manager, said: “As a forward-thinking organisation, we pride ourselves on sensitive, practical and compassionate care that enables people to remain within their own homes and communities. We are thrilled to extend this service to the people of Altrincham and South Manchester, and we hope to create a lasting impact through both our home care and by creating employment opportunities in the local community.”
Belong at Home is a Gold accredited Investor in People and Real Living Wage employer, with its remuneration packages including contracted hours and paid induction, travel time, mileage and DBS checks. As a not-for-profit organisation, Belong invests in high levels of training to develop the skills and careers of their employees, which in turn ensures the highest quality care for customers.
