New care com­pany is hailed ‘trail­blazer’

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Etbusiness Daily -

THE leader of the coun­try’s care watch­dog has praised a new city care com­pany for its ser­vice ap­proach, call­ing it a trail­blazer.

Dame Philippa Rus­sell, chair­woman of the Par­lia­men­tary Stand­ing Com­mis­sion on Car­ers, was the key­note speaker at the re­cent launch of Ax­iom Cross­roads Care at the Kings­gate Cen­tre in Peter­bor­ough.

The not-for-profit or­gan­i­sa­tion has been set up by Ax­iom Hous­ing as­so­ci­a­tion and Cross­roads Care Cam­bridgeshire, a net­work part­ner of Car­ers Trust.

Ax­iom Cross­roads Care, which aims to em­ploy up to 100 peo­ple, will pro­vide a one stop shop for providers and res­i­dents to ac­cess a range of ser­vices, from help with shop­ping per­sonal care.

Dame Rus­sell said: “It can’t be right for vul­ner­a­ble peo­ple to have to deal with mul­ti­ple agen­cies to get the right care. An holis­tic ap­proach like Ax­iom Cross­roads Care is of­fer­ing makes it eas­ier for res­i­dents of a shel­tered scheme and pro­vides a com­mu­nity hub for lo­cal peo­ple to ac­cess high-qual­ity care.

“We need more trail­blaz­ers like the one we are launch­ing to­day.”

Alan Lewin, chief ex­ec­u­tive of Ax­iom, added: “We have been very for­tu­nate to find Cross­roads Care Cam­bridgeshire to part­ner as it shares Ax­iom’s ethos and ex­cel­lence in ser­vice de­liv­ery.”
