Sue Ryder Homecare Stirling gains top marks for sixth year running

MSP, Bruce Crawford congratulates the Sue Ryder Homecare Stirling team on their recent inspection report, over a cake and coffee

SUE Ryder Homecare Stirling has been congratulated by MSP Bruce Crawford on being awarded top marks for the sixth year running in a recent inspection carried out by the Care Inspectorate.  The home care service, which supports people across Stirling, Falkirk, Perth and Clackmannanshire, has achieved a Grade 6 from the care industry body, the highest ranking possible.

While on a visit to the Homecare offices, Mr Crawford met with staff members and clients being supported by the service including husband and wife, Ed and Cilla Campbell.  Cilla, who has dementia, has been supported by the Homecare team for the last two years. 

Commenting on the team’s outstanding inspection report, local MSP Bruce Crawford said, “The Homecare Stirling team carry out some amazing work in our community and are a credit to the local area.  I am delighted that their hard work and commitment has paid off and been reflected not only in this latest inspection report but throughout the last six years.

“I’d like to take this opportunity to say congratulations to Lorraine and the team on their 6th consecutive year of outstanding support to local people who rely on their help daily.”

Also commenting on the achievement, Lorraine Linton, Operation and Development Director of Sue Ryder, said: “This latest report from the Care Inspectorate is an amazing result for the HomeCare team, who daily face all sorts of environments and conditions with a smile on their face.  They work tirelessly to ensure that every one of the two hundred and fifty people they visit each week feel comfortable in their own home and empowered to live as fulfilling a life as possible. 

As a local MSP, it was great that Mr Crawford was able to come in and say congratulations. The team absolutely deserve this recognition and will strive to achieve the same result next year.” 

Homecare Stirling client, John MacInnes, from Dunblane said, “My wife, Isobel has dementia and we’ve been relying on the help of the Stirling Homecare team for the last two years.  If it wasn’t for their exceptional care I wouldn’t be able to go to work, since carers look after Isobel while I’m out.  Their support has been invaluable to us both, allowing Isobel to maintain a good quality of life and me to do something for myself, while caring for Isobel.  The team really are fantastic and absolutely deserve full marks for their work.”

The Stirling based service, established in 2010, provides vital care at home to people living with conditions such as stroke, dementia and MS as well as people who need support at the end of their lives.
