Congratulations to the Homecare team and Nuala Gallagher and Eddie Philipson - 2 carers supported by Liverpool Carers Centre - who were recognised at this year’s Older people’s awards service. The awards are held annually to celebrate the achievements of over 65’s, and organisations providing for older people across the city region.
Local Solutions' Homecare team were recognised in the category 'Outstanding Older Person Agency Award' for their innovative work developing Cluster Response Teams. These are teams of senior carers who support people from a close geographic area to leave hospital when they are medically fit for discharge but are waiting for care packages to be put in place.

A big congratulations to everyone involved!
