Colin Care has been approved for inclusion on the EHSSB Approved List For The Provision Of Domiciliary Care. This is great news for the new care company.
Care co-ordiniator Mrs Phyllis McQuillan explained how this achievement has benefited the company and the community,
“As we are now on the approved list of carers we will be taking on a lot more care packages. As a result we will be employing more staff which means more jobs for the Colin community. These extra care packages allow us to train our staff at a higher level including NVQ level two in Care and there is also room for promotion within the company, as two members of staff have taken on a mentoring role for new staff.”
Annie Armstrong , chairperson of the Colin Health For All Subgroup explained that this accreditation allowed them to provide a first class care service for the Colin community.
“Colin Care is very much community based as they employ local people to care for local people. This is very important as their elderly or vulnerable clients can feel safe as they may know the people caring for them as they live in their local area. This also creates more jobs in Colin and in turn will help to boost the local economy. Colin Care is a not-for-profit company and therefore all of their earnings go back into the community.”
