Home Instead Senior Care has been named as one of 44 organisations in the country to receive royal recognition for its commitment to training and upskilling its workforce.
The home care provider has received the Princess Royal Training Award for the second time, this year for its end of life training, which is also City & Guilds accredited.
In 2016, the company picked up the award for its dementia training.
Commenting on the award, Martin Jones, CEO of Home Instead Senior Care said: “This award is a fantastic accolade and shows our dedication to providing the highest level of training to equip our CAREGivers with the skills needed to help a person during the emotional end stage of their life.
“To achieve this award alongside such a small number of other global businesses really is testament to the quality of training we’re passionate about delivering.”
Home Instead’s specialist end of life training was developed to give its 9,000 carers the personal skills and knowledge to cope with the practical and emotional demands of delivering end of life care.
The aim is to support workers during what is a difficult part of care work and also to improve the quality of care provided to clients.
Chris Jones, chief executive of the City & Guilds Group added: “We were thrilled with the quality and variety of entries this year. The work that HR and L&D teams do to train, upskill and reskill teams is critical; helping individuals to reach their potential and find meaningful employment, while supporting businesses in developing the skills for success, and ultimately producing the productive workforce we so urgently need.”
