Prime Minister officially opens 50th Right at Home office

Theresa May opens Right at Home's 50th franchise office

Theresa May MP praises work of CareGivers for supporting isolated and vulnerable people in their own homes

The Prime Minister spoke of her admiration for the work of community care teams as she attended the official opening of the 50th Right at Home UK office.

Mrs May chatted to several Right at Home CareGivers, along with local business owner, Kevin Lancaster and Right at Home UK CEO, Ken Deary, at the opening event.

Right at Home Reading & Wokingham District, which provides homecare services from its base in Twyford, is the second Right at Home franchise in Mrs May’s Maidenhead constituency. Together both businesses are looking to recruit a further 100 CareGivers over the next twelve months.

On her visit Mrs May spoke with the homecare experts about the difference that appropriately timed visits can have to a Client’s mental well-being and overall quality of life.

The Right at Home team talked about how their experiences of care, in previous personal and professional circumstances, had led them to seek a different solution which put the needs and choices of vulnerable people first.

The Twyford team, which started supporting Clients across the region in January, is the 50th branch in the growing Right at Home UK network and has quickly established a reputation for helping clients to get the most out of life.

During the visit the Prime Minister also met Maidenhead office owner Scott MacRae, whose business was named one of the top 10 providers out of 1306 businesses in the South East of England by HomeCare.co.uk

Prime Minister Theresa May said:

“It was heart-warming to hear how passionate Right at Home’s CareGivers are about the difference they make to people’s lives.

“By being that regular visitor and building that friendly, trusting relationship with local people living safely in their own homes, they are providing them with as much independence as possible. It was wonderful to see just how much satisfaction CareGivers get from helping others.

“Being a carer no doubt has its challenges, but the training and support provided by Kevin and his team to enable CareGivers to help some of the most vulnerable people in our society is something that should be commended.”

Commenting on the PM’s visit, Kevin Lancaster, who set up the business in Twyford said;

“We were delighted to welcome Mrs May to our offices and were grateful that she took the time to speak with our fantastic CareGivers who deserve huge recognition for what they do on a daily basis.”

Ken Deary, CEO of Right at Home UK added;

“Right at Home UK is dedicated to delivering services that our Clients and their families across the UK can trust. We are keen to work with Government to support the challenges faced in the wider social care sector.”

Right at Home is the country’s most highly recommended national homecare provider on independent review site homecare.co.uk. The business provides high-quality care services to adults over the age of 18 in their own home, ranging from one hour to 24/7 live-in care. Primary services are focused on supporting Clients with physical disabilities, learning disabilities and the elderly with an emphasis on providing meaningful companionship and social activity.
