Everycare Eastbourne are delighted to have won the 2019 top twenty home care provider award from homecare.co.uk.
The award is all the more special as it is based upon the responses given by clients or their families (a bit like TripAdvisor). Angela Fuller, one of the directors of Everycare Eastbourne said ‘We are absolutely delighted to have won this award. It’s a testament to all the hard work and professionalism of our office staff and our great team of carers’
Everycare provide home care and live in care services to the people of Eastbourne and the surrounding areas.
Two care homes could be closed because of low occupancy levels and the buildings being not “fit for purpose”.
Gloucestershire County Council is consulting residents over plans to shut Wyatt and Southfield homes, in Stroud.
The authority says there are many empty beds as more people are choosing to stay in their own homes.
The 56 residents would be placed in alternative facilities and employees will be offered similar roles elsewhere.
The potential closures come a year after the local authority shut two other care homes – Trevone House in Gloucester and Townsend House in Mitcheldean.
The council now owns 15 care homes – while there are more than 100 in the private sector.
Nearly 80 councils have seen home care providers close in the last six months impacting on over 7,000 people, according to new research.
This figure is more than double the number affected last year.
The survey published by The Association of Directors of Adult Social Services (ADASS) also stated 38 directors had contracts handed back by home care providers which impacted on nearly 3,500 people in the same period.
As a result of its findings, ADASS is calling on the government to provide a long-term, sustainable funding solution for adult social care and for funding from the Spending Review to be for at least two years and to continue until whatever is in the promised Green Paper can be produced and implemented.
President of ADASS, Julie Ogley, said: “Too many older and disabled people and their families still struggle without getting the help they need. Social workers, managers and councillors are having to make incredibly difficult decisions based on dwindling resources, which should not be allowed to happen in a modern, compassionate society.
“We cannot be expected to keep relying on emergency, one-off funding just to keep services going while not knowing about how much might be available for the rest of this year, let alone next. Despite these immense challenges, the 150 adult social care directors across the country who provided these results have shown what they have been able to do in order to make savings, while continuing to keep the interests of the most vulnerable and elderly in our communities at the very heart of every decision they take.”
