A CARE business is looking to recruit 52 staff in the South and West Trafford areas after securing contracts to help people live safely in their own homes.
Lancashire-based Lifestyle by Homecare Services was founded in 1991 by Ryan and Ann Godwin. Throughout the pandemic the business assisted hospitals to discharge patients swiftly, many of whom had recovered from COVID to be able to return home by providing a bespoke care package to meet their needs and allow them live independently.
The initial five-year contracts for South and West Trafford sees Homecare provide three key services in the Altrincham, Hale, Broadheath, Urmston, Flixton, Partington and Davyhulme areas.
Rapid response speeds up patient discharge from the hospital setting to their own home and care staff will also be involved in preventing admission, by responding immediately to emergency situations. Reablement helps individuals to regain skills that may have been lost through lack of confidence, an injury or from a stay in hospital thus enabling them to continue to live independently.
Long-term home care provides support to enable individuals to remain at home. Care staff will support individuals to participate in their local communities, reducing social isolation and increasing self-worth and support with all aspects of health and wellbeing to increase quality of life.
Already an office has been set up on Harcourt Road, in Altrincham, and Manager Jennifer Gerrard and Care coordinator Casey Fearnley have been appointed. Business Continuity and Quality Manager Jodie Nolan said: “Jennifer has a wealth of experience in care as a registered manager and she is known for quality and driving up standards. Casey has worked with us for approximately 12 months and has progressed from community supervisor to coordinator due to her commitment and skills.
“We were lucky to win the contracts for both of the zones and we are recruiting now for community care workers, rapid and reablement officers and care co-ordinators to work in the office.
“We won the contracts because of our reputation for providing quality services in Lancashire and the Bury areas and that is thanks to the good job that our care workers do caring for individuals.
“A lot of our team members are from the community that their clients live in and so they have a greater local knowledge and investment in local communities which allows us to understand the particular needs of our clients.
“Every person is involved in the creation of their individual care package which is designed around them and offers the opportunity to build a support plan which will enhance their quality of life.”
The company was rated good in all areas by the Care Quality Commission following a two-day inspection of the service in January 2019.
Lifestyle by Homecare Services is working on a franchise model which will build on the knowledge and experience gained over 30 years in the care industry. Franchisees will be able to set up their own care business in their own areas.
