ABOUT LOCAL CARE HOME - PENROSE CARE LIMITED
Penrose Care was established in 2012 in response to what we perceived as a need to fundamentally reform the home care sector in the UK. The vision of Penrose Care is simple – we aspire to deliver excellent and professional home care services to our clients combined with compassion so that all those we care for feel just that – cared for.
Excellence in care starts with those delivering it
We believe that if we are to fulfill our mission of providing “home care with a human touch”, we have to employ the best care professionals in the sector. We believe we have just that team, and have built this up by focusing heavily on looking after our staff. We train our staff to ensure they are up to date with all Skills for Care recommendations (not just the obligatory ones). We strive to create a good working environment and ensure our staff are paid well (in fact, we are one of only a few London Living Wage employers in the home care sector).
Based in the heart of Belsize Village
We believe in serving the local community. Our first branch is based in the heart of Belsize Village, NW3, in north west London, the community in which the founders and directors have lived for (in the case of some) decades.
Personalised care with compassion and dignity
The Penrose Care model means we have our contract directly with those we care for (be that privately paid or via direct payments). This gives us the independence to be able to truly design a package of support around the needs of our clients and insulate us and our clients from ongoing quality pressures on publicly-commissioned care.
