We have had a revamp! Welcome to the new look Quality Care of Cheadle. What do you think?
You can rest assured that Quality Care of Cheadle is not changing it’s ethos, we still remain committed to a better quality of care for all of our service users and their families and we are fully person centred in everything that we do.
At the end of December last year, we were given the nod that vaccinations for home care workers were imminent. This excited us a lot and we are really pleased that now, all staff have been offered their first dose of the COVID-19 vaccination with appointments booked for follow up doses! Natalie, made a short video diary of her vaccination experience and you can watch this on our social media channels here:
The annual Stockport Star Awards ceremony was due to be held in early March this year, just as the coronavirus pandemic was starting to take hold. Stockport CCG and organisers took the difficult decision to postpone the ceremony until later in the year when it could be held safely.
The awards ceremony was then held virtually this November and we are so pleased to announce that Quality Care of Cheadle has been awarded Best Home Care Provider and David has been awarded Best Home Care Worker. David and Quality Care of Cheadle received some amazing nominations from our service users and their families and we are incredibly grateful for them and proud we can provide a service that people love.
We need to thank every single member of staff for their input, without them we couldn’t be what we really want to be. They work so hard and this year in particular, they have worked so selflessly and tirelessly and deserve this achievement. Thank you.

Stockport Flu Vaccination Pledge
Influenza, most commonly known as flu, is a serious disease that can lead to hospitalisation and sometimes even death. Every flu season is different, and the flu infection can affect people differently. Even healthy people can get very sick and spread it to others.
The best way to prevent the flu is to get vaccinated. This organisation has pledged to protect their staff and your loved ones from getting influenza this season.
Individuals eligible for flu vaccination are based on the advice of the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation with the programme aiming to provide direct protection to those who are at higher risk of flu associated morbidity and mortality. This includes older people, pregnant women, and those with certain underlying medical conditions.
Flu vaccines cause antibodies to develop in the body about two weeks after vaccination. These antibodies provide protection against infection with the viruses that are in the vaccine. Join Quality Care of Cheadle in taking the pledge. Encourage your family and friends to get the flu vaccine. When more people get vaccinated, less flu can spread to your loved ones, the staff that care for them and the community in general.
STOCKPORT STAR AWARDS RETURN
We welcome the return of the Stockport Star awards, celebrating the best in the care industry in Stockport. There are a number of different categories for nominations in the Home Care sector. If you would like to nominate someone from Quality Care of Cheadle you can get in touch with us and we can provide you with nomination forms. The categories are as follows;
- Best Home Care Provider – this relates to the company providing care. What have they done different? How has the client received better care as a result of what they do?
- Best Home Care Worker – Do you know a home care worker that has gone above and beyond? Have they contributed to the well-being of a client? Do they work well individually or as part of a team making everything count for the individual?
- Excellence in Quality Award – Again, this relates to the organisation providing care. Have they demonstrated quality initiatives to ensure a better quality of care for clients and staff?
- Most Inspirational Leader – Have they created conditions in which innovation thrives, has led to a change in staff culture, motivating staff to be the best they can be? Have they empowered others to be confident and competent, do they champion quality?
- Overall Stockport Star – This person, group or organisation will be chosen from the nominations received in the other categories
- Stockport’s Hidden Star – This award is for those staff who are not necessarily customer facing but provide an invaluable contribution to the day to day running of caring for people in the care sector.
Quality Care of Cheadle is turning GREEN
It’s the news we’ve been waiting for and can finally announce…
We have worked so hard to gain our Good rating back from the Care Quality Commission (CQC) and after a recent full inspection we are pleased to announce that we have received their Good rating. Our huge thanks go to our team of amazing care workers and everyone behind the scenes working together to make this happen. As always we strive to be the best in providing a real Quality service.
“They don’t clock watch even though they’re busy and that’s important so people don’t feel rushed.”
“I’ve got a care plan but I don’t bother with it, the care workers look at it but they always ask me.”
“They’re excellent, very professional. I think they are absolutely brilliant.”
