Wilmslow’s Carefound Home Care has been cited positively in a parliamentary debate regarding dementia.
MP Esther McVey noted the provider, in particular its dementia care team, while discussing how to support people living with dementia during the coronavirus pandemic.
McVey, Member of Parliament for Tatton, said: “I know that in Tatton and across the country care workers, family members and helpers have worked tirelessly, and I put on record my thanks and appreciation to all those people.
“Oliver Stirk, director of Carefound Home Care in Wilmslow, told me that their carers have adapted to the situation.
“Their patients are no longer now allowed to go to the pub to have a Sunday lunch, so his carers are cooking for them at home, so they can have some kind of enjoyment.
“They have also done much to support the families to get online.”

In response, Oliver Stirk, managing director of Carefound Home Care, said: “We’re very proud of the care and support our home care team provide in Tatton and it’s great to see their efforts referenced in Westminster.
The Covid-19 pandemic has presented enormous challenges for families affected by dementia and we have seen some amazing examples of our carers going above and beyond and putting the specialist approach to dementia care we use into practice – the SPECAL method.”
