The winners of the 2019 Home Care Awards have been announced, with Heritage Healthcare and Cera Care picking up the top accolades.
Organised by Stratford Projects, The Home Care Awards took place at the Royal Garden Hotel in London last week, with 14 care providers being presented with trophies.
Nationwide service Cera Care scooped a hat-trick of awards, taking home the Most Outstanding Home Care Provider; Live-in Care Expertise and Best Technology, Data or Software Product awards.
Speaking after picking up the awards, Cera Care general manager Ben Charalambous said: “It’s fantastic. The team will be really happy as it shows we are on a good path.
“It has been a really good start to the year, we’ve got really good foundation now, we’ve got a really good team, won a few awards so we are looking forward to keeping growing, to keep improving the technology and to continue to deliver outstanding care to our clients.
Meanwhile, Heritage Healthcare picked up the Most Outstanding Home Care Team award, beating other finalists, Jane Lewis Healthcare and Right at Home Reigate & Crawley.
Commenting on the win, director Michelle Fenwick said: “It’s really amazing. It makes everything worthwhile. Years ago we were providing the care ourselves and now we are supporting our franchisees and our business partners to do this.
“It’s great to get an award and even better to know that people think we are doing a good job. We’ve never really looked at entering awards over the years because we’ve just had our heads down and working as hard as we could, which makes this first award that little bit more special.”
Heritage Healthcare also picked up the National Support Team award later in the ceremony.
Other winners include Home Instead Senior Care, which won the Specialist Care Expertise award; Audley Care (Cleveden), which took home the End-of-Life Expertise award; and Jane Lewis Healthcare, which was named the best Specialist Care Team.
