For the fourth year in a row, Burley’s Home Care has been announced as a winner of the homecare.co.uk Home Care Awards, ranking in the top twenty providers in the South West.
The awards are published every year and highlight the most recommended home care groups from across the UK, which are selected based on the experiences and reviews of customers and their carers or families.
Burley’s Home Care provides visiting or live-in carers for people with a range of conditions, and most frequently older people with dementia, who reside in the West New Forest, West Dorset and Salisbury areas.
Paul Burley, who set up the company with his wife Carly in 2009, said: “To be named as one of the top 20 home care providers in the South West for the fourth year in a row is absolutely amazing, though I have to admit I’m not surprised! Our team is simply incredible, and I feel very lucky to work with such dedicated and caring professionals on a daily basis. Nothing is ever too much to ensure our clients get the high-quality care they deserve.
“We have all been through some exceptionally challenging times in the last year or so, and yet our team remains committed to being there for each other and for our clients, keeping them well every day and staying in contact when no one else was able to. We are privileged to be able to support and care for people at a time when they need it the most.”
During the pandemic, home care providers have played a key role in caring for the elderly and vulnerable who may be self-isolating at home. They have been integral in providing care for people that are all too often forgotten about by society.
Homecare.co.uk estimates that more than 950,000* people in the UK receive care at home, and aims to make the process of choosing the right company easier with its awards process.
As well as looking at thousands of reviews from those who are cared for and their families, the awards are also considered based on providers’ overall standard, the staff, care and support, management, whether people are treated with dignity and value for money.
