One of the UK’s leading healthcare providers will start providing home care at three of Borough of Poole’s extra care facilities. Shaw healthcare will be providing over 1500 hours of care to residents at Borough of Poole’s extra care services – Trinidad, Delphis and Belmont.
Shaw was recently selected through an open tender process to provide care at a new council-owned care home in Poole, Figbury Lodge, which will provide specialist nursing and dementia care when the 80-bed care home on Mitchell Road when it opens in summer 2019.
Shaw will be transferring employees across from the incumbent care provider through a TUPE process and will begin delivering care on February 8th 2018. The volume of care delivered will escalate in a phased approach reaching 1900 hours of care by March.
Suzanne Hughes, Deputy Chief Executive Officer, commented: “We are delighted to be building on the level of care we deliver in Poole. An increased involvement in the community will help us build a strong network of good caring individuals that can help us deliver care underpinned by our brand values of wellness, happiness and kindness.”
Cllr Karen Rampton, Cabinet Portfolio Holder for health and adult social care, Borough of Poole, said: “Poole’s extra care facilities allow people to live more independently whilst receiving the care they need. We are looking forward to Shaw Healthcare working alongside the council, our extra care housing providers and particularly residents by delivering a good quality care and support service.”
