A WIRRAL company has won an award for being one of the top 20 large home care groups in the UK.

The Alcedo Care Healthcare Group Home received the honour from home care reviews site, www.homecare.co.uk, which hosts the Top 20 awards to help people find home care that is right for their needs, location and budget.

This award is based on the home care group’s reviews from the people they care for, plus their friends and relatives.

Andy Boardman, managing director of Alcedo Care, said: "We are delighted to have won this award once again; it is a magnificent achievement for the Group and the whole team.

"It is the fourth consecutive year that we have been named in the Top 20 large home care groups in the UK, and each time the sense of pride increases.

"We are an innovative, growing business but we never compromise on the quality of care we deliver.

"We strive to make a difference and ultimately enrich the lives of our clients; that is the cornerstone of the care we provide."

Amanda Hopkins, reviews manager of homecare.co.uk, adds: "People are living longer with multiple health conditions and so home care providers which offer care tailored to people living in their own homes have become a key element in health and social care in Britain.

"Alcedo Care has proved that it provides a high standard of care and we’d like to congratulate them on being a top home care group!

"It is a huge achievement to be named as one of the Top 20 large home care groups in the UK."
