Healthcare & Pharmaceutical Awards 2019

GHP / 2019 Healthcare & Pharmaceutical Awards 15 , 22 GHP / 2019 Healthcare & Pharmaceutical Awards , Chapter Care (North Devon) Ltd: Chapter Care Ltd: Best Domiciliary Care Provider 2019 - Devon Chapter Care (North Devon) Ltd is a family owned domiciliary care company based in North Devon, providing care and support to service users across the county. As part of our overview of a selection of some of this year’s Healthcare and Pharmaceutical Awards winners we offer an insight into the services the firmhas to offer and how these benefit patients and their families. With teams of trained care workers providing a range of care services, supporting service users in Barnstaple, Bideford, South Molton, Ilfracombe and surround- ing locations, Chapter Care is able to meet the needs of its varied patients and ensure that they and their families are secure in the knowl- edge that they are properly supported. Working predominantly with elderly patients, the firm is deeply dedicated to providing a professional service. As part of this focus, the firm looks not only to its service users, but also to its staff, providing them with the support, training and guidance needed to provide quality service and support to everyone they help throughout their role. As part of its dedication to supporting its team members, Chapter Care have scrapped zero hours contracts for everyone except people who specifically ask for them, and instead pay by a shift worked, which is practically unheard of in the care sector. This gives carers the security of knowing that their role is secure and this helps them to work more effectively for the benefit of their service users. Looking ahead, with Brexit looming on the horizon and fewer workers moving to the UK from across Europe, the care industry is facing a shortage of staff. This combined with the constantly rising life expectancies of residents throughout the UK is presenting challenges. Seeking to change the care industry macro economically and help it to overcome its staff shortage issues, moving forward Chapter Care will be opening a charity to support care workers and showcase the hard work they undertake. Working closely with local business, this latest venture will help to provide every opportunity possible to make caring as attractive a career prospect as possible, helping bring even more new talent into the industry and helping secure the future of the ever-growing care market.
