Cel­e­bra­tion of so­cial care is held in vil­lage

Stockport Express - - The Laughing Badger -

AN event was held to cel­e­brate the so­cial care sec­tor in Chea­dle Vil­lage.

Natalie Peters, the com­mu­nity de­vel­op­ment man­ager for Qual­ity Care of Chea­dle, a fam­ily-run com­pany led by Phil and Bri­die Mee­han, or­gan­ised the event on Chea­dle Green.

It was held to mark Qual­ity Care’s 20th birth­day and to high­light the work of other so­cial care or­gan­i­sa­tions.

Natalie said: “This is a sec­tor that is of­ten over­looked and out of sight.

“They do an in­valu­able job of keep­ing our loved ones either in their own homes for as long as pos­si­ble or they en­sure they are well cared for in a home, for ex­am­ple, when stay­ing at home is no longer pos­si­ble.

“We brought to­gether lo­cal com­pa­nies and char­i­ties that all work hard to pro­vide the very best in what they do.

“We wanted to cel­e­brate them - and Qual­ity Care’s 20th birth­day.

“We wanted to thank the peo­ple that made 20 years of Qual­ity Car­ing pos­si­ble - our fan­tas­tic staff.”

Staff from Qual­ity Care of Chea­dle were joined by a host of other com­pa­nies, in­clud­ing the To­gether Trust, Ab­ney Court Care Home, Stock­port Psy­cho­log­i­cal Well­be­ing Ser­vice and So­cially Yours, a not- for­profit so­cial en­ter­prise set up by Qual­ity Care to tackle so­cial iso­la­tion.

There were also in­for­ma­tion stalls on ser­vices such as Lloyds Pharmacy, Whee­lans Op­ti­cals and the Alzheimer’s So­ci­ety and signed vis­i­tors up for a De­men­tia Friends ses­sion to be held at Cre­ate It in Chea­dle on Septem­ber 15.

Natalie added: “It was amaz­ing to see so many lo­cal com­pa­nies come to­gether and sup­port one another, help­ing us to cel­e­brate 20 years and this thor­oughly re­ward­ing in­dus­try.”
