Care UK in Bolton, now part of Mears Group, has been recognised by homecare.co.uk in the Top 10 Agencies Awards 2015, which highlights the most recommended homecare agencies in each region of the UK.

The Bolton branch came fifth out of 729 homecare providers in North West England in the Awards, which are based on over 3,000 recommendations received last year from service users as well as their family and friends.

Homecare.co.uk lists thousands of home care providers across the country, allowing anyone to search for care services in their area. It also lets people who have experienced services firsthand post recommendations, giving added confidence to those looking for care services. These recommendations also form the basis for the Top 10 Agencies Awards.

Margaret P recommended Care UK in Bolton, saying: “All the carers who attend to my husband are lovely – polite, friendly and professional. Our regular carer, who usually comes five times a week, is like one of the family. We would definitely recommend Care UK.”

Chief Operating Officer for Mears, Bernadette Walsh, said, “We are delighted that service users and their family and friends have recognised the hard work of our care workers – their recommendations speak volumes about the effort and determination of everyone involved.”
