Guests from around the region visited Crewe Hall on Friday to celebrate the launch of Guinness Care’s new Cheshire Care at Home service. Local MP Laura Smith dropped in to meet care workers who will be delivering the service, as well as local charities and NHS workers. The Mayor of Cheshire East, Councillor Lesley Smetham also attended the event.
The Cheshire Care at Home service goes beyond a one-size-fits-all approach – it is a personalised and flexible care service providing everything from companionship to domestic services, personal care, to specialist and complex care on a temporary, intermittent or long-term basis.
The local care team who will be providing the service also attended, along with the first two customers to benefit from the service. They viewed a video explaining the importance of the new service, followed by afternoon tea to celebrate its launch.
Laura Smith MP said, ‘I am delighted to support the launch of the Guinness Care at Home service in Cheshire. It was fantastic to meet some of the carers who will be providing the new personalised and flexible service.
‘Nothing could be more important than providing good quality care that allows people to remain in their homes. I am hopeful that Guinness Care at Home Cheshire will offer local people the choice and opportunity to do this.’
Paul Watson, Guinness Care’s Managing Director, introduced the service and the video. He said, ‘Good quality social care and housing is vital. There is a real opportunity in Cheshire and across the country, a gap for a truly flexible care service.
‘That is what Guinness Care’s Cheshire Care at Home service offers – anything from companionship to specialist services.’
