Delivering effective services, enterprising solutions and exemplary homes and communities.
Swan Care and Support Services won the 'End of Life Care Award' at the Prospers - Essex Care Sector Awards held at Chelmsford County Racecourse in Chelmsford. The awards celebrate excellence in Essex's care sector.
Staff at Swan Care and Support Services are dedicated to providing exemplary, person centred End of Life care and frequently go above and beyond to ensure their clients and their families are supported at the end of their life. They work in close partnership with the local CCG, hospitals and hospices so that people who wish to spend their final days at home can be properly supported by Swan's highly trained and experienced Care and Support staff.
The award also recognises how Swan's management team support the staff who care for people who are close to death and have passed away. There is a dedicated End of Life Champion who supports the team and is available to share best practice. It is an emotionally challenging role and everyone is encouraged to speak about their experiences in regular Q&A sessions.
Pete Morley-Watts, Swan's Director Care and Support said "I am so proud that Swan Care and Support Services have won this award. Everyone on the team is dedicated to ensuring the people they care for are allowed to die according to their wishes. They frequently advocate for their clients and they ensure that a person's final wishes are met whilst providing support for family and friends."
