Top-performing, Alcester-based Home Care Company – Helping Hands had further cause for celebration recently. In addition to reaching its 25th Year Anniversary in May, privately owned care company Helping Hands achieved a top ranking in the Health Investor Growth Company Awards 2014 as the second highest performing Healthcare business in the country. This award recognises the UK’s top 25 independent healthcare companies based on their growth over the last 3 years.
Tim Lee, the Chief Executive of Helping Hands, a leading local domiciliary home care and specialist live in home care provider said: “ As the population in Britain gets older we regularly see research which confirms that most people would like to remain independent, living in their own homes, for as long as possible. The recent growth achieved by Helping Hands is a result of our passion and desire to provide services which enable as many people as possible to maintain their independence and stay living safely in their own homes, rather than go into residential care. “
As a respected, local employer Helping Hands has over 300 carers working in our local communities. The carers benefit from market leading training at the company’s in house training facility at Minerva Mill, Alcester. They are able to support local people who require support at home through assisting with daily living, helping at mealtimes or with medication, providing companionship or through a Home from Hospital service which enables people to safely return home from hospital and free up much needed hospital beds at this busy time of year.
Commenting on the award, Matthew Flower, Head of Healthcare at Zolfo Cooper said “ Given the strong reputation developed over the last 25 years, it is not surprising to see the business near the top of this year’s list yet again. “
