Agincare buys Peterhouse

Agincare has bought Peterhouse in Bexhill, East Sussex; a leading Retirement Complex which incorporates a Nursing and Residential Care Home, sheltered housing flats and a day centre.

NABS the advertising and media industry’s charity decided to sell due to a significant decrease in demand from within the industry for a NABS-run retirement complex.

Agincare Gender Pay Gap Report

From 6 April 2018 employers in Great Britain with more than 250 staff are required by law to publish their gender pay gap information, covering pay and bonuses.

Agincare UK employs a high number of women in senior positions and there is no pay gap between their pay and men’s pay in such positons.

Innovation through partnership

We are very proud of the achievements of our incredible Home First project teams who are finalists for the 2018 Laing Buisson Private/Public Partnership Award for the second year running.

Over the last 12 months, Agincare has been engaging nationally with Trusts, CCG’s and LA’s, forging proof of concept across a number of bridging and enhanced domiciliary schemes for a more radical approach to workforce challenges.

Delays in transfer of care

Recent data published by NHS England shows a 24% decrease in delayed transfer of care when comparing June 2017 to June 2018. Though the trend shows very positive signs there were still over 134,000 delayed days of care in June 2018. The main reason for NHS delays was because patients were awaiting further non acute NHS care. For social care delays, patients were often waiting for care packages to be set up in their own homes.

THOUGHTS OF A GRATEFUL MAN

I am a very grateful man

To have so much good care

From care workers who work so hard

From a firm named Agincare.

They come to me 5 days a week

And do whate’er they can

To make my life more comfortable;

I am a lucky man.

When folks get elderly or ill

They need a lot of aid

To live a fairly normal life

Perhaps have friendships made.

Becky, Becks and Marianne

Are very good to me.

They obviously love their work –

It is so plain to see.

The Beast from the East

Crecy is situated just on the outskirts of Weymouth and being on the coast very rarely experiences snow but with the help of “Storm Emma” things were certainly different at the beginning of March This was Weymouth Harbour side on 2nd March; normally a busy place where people stop and have a coffee was deserted Chesil Beach which links Portland to Weymouth was covered in a blanket of snow This is normally a small lake between Dorchester and Weymouth but it was turned into an ice rink And Weymouth Beach was more likely to see snowmen instead of sandcastles!

Outstanding Crecy

The news we were all waiting for “OUTSTANDING”. The full report can be read on the Care Quality Commission Website. Letters of thanks and a little something to celebrate with were handed out to all members of staff by Simon Luckhurst, Operations Manager.
