“At Penrose Care, we have taken a tremendous amount of measures to set ourselves vastly apart from our peers in terms of being an ethical and preferred employer in the London home care sector. I am pleased that our courage and leadership has been recognised by the Great British Care Awards,” said Robert Stephenson-Padron, managing director and co-founder of Penrose Care. “Our efforts are a team effort, spearheaded by myself and our co-founder, Dr. Matthew Knight. I thank him and all of our excellent members of staff who have helped us build and maintain a very special company culture.”
“Although we have been disheartened over the the poor conduct by some of our peers and some adult social care commissioners depicted in the news media recently, we are proud that we continue to set ourselves vastly apart from these organisations and individuals with our leadership as an ethical employer and provider in England’s home care sector,” said Mr. Stephenson-Padron.
