We’re thrilled to be launching this month in Abingdon, Oxfordshire; with a wonderful new team of Wellbeing Workers in place, led by Wellbeing Leader Lauren Bond. This is the first Wellbeing Teams in Oxfordshire, with further teams planned for Wallingford.
Kate Terroni, the Director for Adult Social Care at Oxfordshire County Council, said:
The Care Quality Commission has acknowledged Wellbeing Teams as a brand new model of care.
As ever, our prime motive in getting involved with is to provide quality care and help people live independently at home – but this is a very different way of achieving that aim.
It has the potential to unlock untapped potential for the home care market by reaching out to people who’d not normally consider working in the care industry and at the same time creating a much more varied workforce. Workforce recruitment issues in the care industry have been well documented in our county. This is both exciting and innovative and I look forward to teams taking shape in Abingdon and Wallingford.
