Seven Years at the Top for Belong at Home

Carers at Belong at Home, the not-for-profit community support service operated by dementia specialist, Belong, are celebrating after securing a place in the UK’s top home care groups for the seventh year in a row.

Based on independent reviews on leading comparison website, homecare.co.uk, Belong at Home teams throughout the North West and West Midlands have been named in the country’s Top 20 Large & Mid-size Home Care Groups 2024 – the only not-for-profit service in the country to have won the award every year since 2018.

The result comes from feedback from client and family reviews, with the domiciliary care operator’s Warrington and Wigan teams each picking up additional regional awards after attaining 100% satisfaction review scores.

One daughter of a client in south Manchester wrote: “Belong at Home has been wonderful in helping us as a family to support Mum in her own home after her dementia diagnosis. The caring and well-trained team is incredibly dedicated, creative, kind and resourceful.”

Another said: “On time, cheerful, attentive. As well as the practical day-to-day things, the carers are genuinely good company and are making my life much easier, and Mum's life longer and better. Happy!”

Supporting people in their homes, as well as those residing in the Belong village apartments to live independently, Belong at Home provides rigorous training to its team of carers, who support older people with one-to-one personal care, housekeeping, food preparation, as well as running errands, helping with excursions and offering companionship. Clients also have the option to take advantage of the Experience Days day care service at their local Belong village, for which the team can assist with transport.

Andrew Shield, head of operations at Belong at Home, said: “We are very pleased that the hard work and dedication of our teams is recognised by our customers and their families, and we are grateful for their feedback – it really is encouraging. They are the experts in what they need, and we are privileged to support them to live their lives as independently as they can.”

The accolade comes as the organisation continues its recruitment drive, providing opportunities for support workers, as well as training roles for local people new to care. Its ‘for people, not profit’ status enables it to continuously reinvest in its team to provide award-winning care to customers. Belong at Home is one of the few community care operators to recompense colleagues for travel time between appointments.
