Award-winning Bridgewater Home Care celebrates 10 years in Business

Bridgewater Home Care 10 year anniversary celebration

October 3, 2020

Bridgewater Home Care is delighted to be celebrating ten successful years in business this October.

Bridgewater Home Care was founded in 2010 by Phil Eckersley and celebrates a decade in the home care business on Sunday 4th October 2020. Phil formed Bridgewater Home Care due to his own yearning to make a difference in his local community, with the values of Quality, Reliability and Trust at its core.

Since those early beginnings Bridgewater Home Care has been driven by Phil’s passion to provide the very highest standard of home care services to promote independence and quality of life for those living in their own homes across the North West. The award-winning business has gone on to expand its regional network with 3 locations that have achieved success after implementing the Bridgewater Home Care model.

Bridgewater Home Care has recently been recognised in a major North West awards competition for their efforts as an employer of choice by receiving two accolades at the Greater Manchester Business Awards 2020 for “Employer of the Year “and “Wellbeing in the Workplace.” Bridgewater Home Care are also thrilled that they have been shortlisted for a prestigious national award for Homecare at this year’s LaingBuisson Awards which recognise outstanding achievement and excellence within the health and social care sector.

Phil commented that “our most recent award wins are testament to the unique family culture at Bridgewater Home Care and are clear evidence of our commitment to the continuous improvement and well-being of our employees, something I am extremely proud of. Providing care is anything but unskilled work. We need to remove this damaging perception and continue celebrating the amazing work performed by our carers and make caring visible. Bridgewater Home Care is a wonderful place for people to develop their talent and receive the best training, coaching, and mentoring to progress their career in care.”

Phil went on to add “I am so proud of everything that we have achieved over the past 10 years. There have been so many highlights, from welcoming our first client on board, which I still remember to this day, to winning our first award in 2017 for Employer of the Year. Every time we receive a positive client review is a highlight as I know our teams have made a real difference. Particularly over the past 6 months, I am honoured by how the office and care teams have come together supporting each other. We have all helped each other & our clients despite challenging times. The population of the U.K. is ageing, and the home care sector is growing. Combine this with the current step-change in the perception of carers and it is not too difficult to see that there is a fabulous opportunity for the sector to thrive economically, whilst also bringing huge social benefits. Now is definitely the time to celebrate everything we have achieved & we very much look forward to being the leader in home care across the North West over the next decade.” ⠀

Bridgewater Home Care had planned to hold a large 10-year anniversary celebration event at the DW Stadium, Wigan on 10th October. Due to recent local restrictions, the Bridgewater Home Care team are now looking forward to celebrating virtually and are holding a zoom event on the 10th October to celebrate the Anniversary, in light of current social distancing measures.
