Bromsgrove District Housing Trust has confirmed that the Extra Care contract at Gilbert Court, Charford, Bromsgrove has been awarded to Eclipse HomeCare.
Eclipse HomeCare are a well establish provider of care in the home across Worcestershire and Rob Gready, Managing Director said he was ‘‘delighted to be given the opportunity to bring a fresh approach to the provision of Extra Care at home in Bromsgrove, and to be taking on such a well establish team of local caregivers’’.
He went on to say that his vision for the expanded service involved much more local interaction with the offering of a range of new activities such as bus trips, film nights, double top darts, knit & natter and a ‘just for men’ social group to all elderly residents, who could get to Gilbert Court, at very low cost.
He also wanted to do more for local residents with mild dementia with the creation of interactive group sessions, and at the same time plans on establishing a new ‘Care at Home’ service in the New Year.
His main concern reflected the current levels of strong employment in the area ‘’Eclipse HomeCare has a good reputation as an employer but we are new to Bromsgrove and my biggest concern is that we will not be able to fill our current job vacancies quickly enough to deliver these new and exciting services on time and we would welcome enquiries from anyone with a caring heart’’.
