Bridgewater Home Care, a leading home care provider for over 10 years, is proud to reflect upon its recent success of maintaining essential, safe, and high-quality care to our clients throughout the Covid pandemic.

Our care specialists provide the help and support needed to remain safe and independent at home. We’re following government guidelines, including the use of personal protective equipment (PPE) to protect our clients and staff, so you can rest assured your loved ones are in safe hands.

We have an excellent reputation in the local community for providing the highest standard of care and we take pride in offering a very responsive, friendly, flexible service that our clients, their family and their friends can rely on. Our services can help with the simple tasks like shopping, escorted visits to GP surgeries, companionship calls, through to personal and specialist care, all tailored to suit your needs.

Bridgewater Home Care have also recently celebrated  an overall review score of 9.8 at Bridgewater Home Care in Wigan and 9.5 at Bridgewater Home Care in Bolton through leading home care review website, The scores are calculated from independent reviews made by people being cared for or by relatives/friends of the people being cared for.

Covid has presented Bridgewater Home Care and all care providers with an unprecedented range of complex and demanding issues, such as interpreting rapidly changing legislation and ensuring access to essential safety equipment such as PPE. Managing Director and founder of Bridgewater Home Care, Phil Eckersley, has been meeting these demands head on and has led the implementation of Bridgewater’s responsive coronavirus strategy which ensures the safety of their clients and carers – focusing heavily upon infection control.

Phil commented “The biggest impact on the business has been managing the health and safety of our care teams, office staff and our clients. It has been a challenging time acquiring enough PPE to meet the new standards and guidelines issued by the Government and Department of Health but we are proud to have a highly enthusiastic and hard working team with a group of key suppliers who have ensured that it is ‘business as usual’ when caring for our clients and our staff in the safest way possible.” Phil went on to add that  “one of the biggest actions though was ensuring that we had a calm, strong and level headed management team who maintained a presence in the field throughout the pandemic so that no member of our care team or any client ever felt alone or vulnerable.”

Adjustments have been made across the board to ensure safety for all, “During the crisis we conducted well-being checks with staff and clients and we are delighted to have received countless emails and phone calls from our clients’ families thanking us for our efforts.“

Bridgewater Home Care has also recently been recognised for our efforts as an Employer of first choice thanks to our amazing office staff and care teams winning the “Employer of the Year” and “Wellbeing in the Workplace” Awards at the virtual Greater Manchester Business Awards 2020 on Friday 4th September 2020.

We could not be prouder of all our wonderful staff who “Go above and Beyond”.
