Belsize Village, London, 28 June 2013:
Penrose Care is proud to have been highlighted in an article about the training of home care staff in today’s issue of the Jewish Chronicle. The article is titled “What makes a perfect carer?” by Elisa Cowen on page CN6 in the Care & Nursing Supplement in the June 28, 2013 issue of the Jewish Chronicle. “… training is a high-priority at agencies such as Penrose Care” according to the article.
“We are incredibly pleased to see recognition for our top-of-the-range home care support worker training programme by a prominent news outlet such as the Jewish Chronicle,” says Penrose Care’s managing director, Robert Stephenson-Padron. “When Dr. Matthew Knight and I founded Penrose Care in the summer of 2012, a focal point within our goal of raising the standards for home care was improving training standards in social care. We are proud to have commenced turning this goal into reality but our work is not done – we continue to explore further ways to improve the way home care support workers are inducted, trained, and pursue continuing professional development.”
