Car­ers give thumbs up to coun­cil ser­vices

Rochdale Observer - - FRONT PAGE -

CAR­ERS across Rochdale have given the thumbs up to the ex­cel­lent stan­dard of ser­vice they re­ceive from the coun­cil.

The re­sults of the bi­en­nial na­tional car­ers’ sur­vey found the bor­ough was above the Eng­land av­er­age as well as the best per­form­ing coun­cil in Greater Manch­ester for over­all carer sat­is­fac­tion lev­els. In a fur­ther boost, the re­sults re­vealed that car­ers’ qual­ity of life across the bor­ough was higher than both the Eng­land and Greater Manch­ester av­er­age.

Rochdale was also top of the tree across the re­gion for the num­ber of car­ers who felt in­volved in dis­cus­sions about the per­son they cared for.

And the re­sults also re­vealed a 4 per cent in­crease in the num­ber of Rochdale car­ers sat­is­fied with the ser­vice pro­vided by the coun­cil.

The sur­vey con­firms the fan­tas­tic ser­vice the coun­cil pro­vide to car­ers across the bor­ough of Rochdale.

Coun Iftikhar Ahmed, cabi­net mem­ber for adult ser­vices, said: “We are proud of the work we do to sup­port our car­ers.

“There are thou­sands of ded­i­cated peo­ple across Rochdale do­ing an in­spired and self­less job look­ing af­ter loved ones.

“Well done to ev­ery­one in­volved.”
