Regional care provider, Westward Care has launched At Home – a premium home care service for older people in Leeds which provides a professional and reliable alternative to moving into a care home.
“There was a time when things were black and white. You were either able to lead an independent life at home, or you weren’t, in which case a care home was often the only solution. At Westward Care, we are working towards building a portfolio of services and facilities that means every individual can access the kind of care that suits them best –we don’t believe in a one size fits all approach,” says Peter Hodkinson, Managing Director, Westward Care.
Westward Care operates three quality care homes in Leeds and ‘At Home’ is designed to leverage the company’s professional approach to care and customer service and recreate this for clients who wish to be looked after in their own homes.
The company can provide as much or as little care as each customer requires, with services ranging from help with personal care and hygiene, getting up or going to bed, shopping and trips away from home, housework and laundry, paying bills, home repairs and collecting pensions and prescriptions, for example.
The company is part of the Leeds Care Association, English Community Care Association and The Gold Standards Framework in Care Homes. Westward Care was the winner of the ‘Best Small Care Employer Award’ for Yorkshire and the Humber last year.
“We don’t just provide care, we provide reliability, peace of mind, freedom and choice to live your life as you please,” adds Peter Hodkinson.
