Hazelwood’s award triumph
Recently, we had the pleasure of attending the Rossendale Business Awards 2021, where we were awarded with this year’s Medium Business Award! It is a wonderful feeling to have all of our hard work and dedication recognised and celebrated.
At Hazelwood, it is our mission to ensure that we are delivering excellent standards of care to each and every one of our clients. Constantly, going above and beyond to make sure their needs are tailored to all whilst strictly following Government guidelines to guarantee all safety precautions are followed – especially during COVID. But we can also get creative! A little fact you may not have known, during the ongoing PPE shortage when the pandemic began, we personally sought out a plastic bag company to help provide us with PPE such as plastic aprons. We refused to let a little obstacle like a global pandemic drop our standards! We are grateful to have others recognise our efforts, nevermind be awarded for them!
For those who don’t know we were initially a residential home within Haslingden that was opened in 1985 by Pat Mahgoub. However, upon recognising that there were many visitors that were not actually ready to be reallocated from their homes yet, but still required assistance Pat realised that there was a space in which community care was needed. This led to the birth of Hazelwood homecare services as we know it and a brilliant team of dedicated individuals.
Our wonderful manager, Jill Allen said:
“We have grown from a small business at the Kingfisher Centre in Rawtenstall to now being based in the former bank in Crawshawbooth. We have 48 clients, all adults, with a variety of needs, not just elderly but also people with physical disabilities, learning difficulties and mental health issues.”
This isn’t Hazelwood’s first award and we hope it will not be our last as we continue striving to deliver the excellent care all of our clients deserve!
