Award winning carers in the town were paid a visit by Rugby MP Mark Pawsey to see their valuable work.
Mr Pawsey visited the home of Rugby resident Christiane Townsend to observe the award winning care provided to her by Home Instead Senior Care Rugby's CAREGivers - who recently received the Queen's award for innovation.
He was joined on his visit by Sarah Slater, owner and managing director of Home Instead Senior Care Rugby, who along with Mrs Townsend's CAREGiver demonstrated the company's personalised in-home care services.
Home Instead picked up the award after introducing a new home based social care model which addresses a growing demand from an ageing population.
After the visit, Mr Pawsey said: "The Queen's Award is hugely prestigious and recognises the unique and bespoke model Home Instead use to deliver quality care in the home for older people. Home Instead Rugby use a relationship-led approach, which carefully matches CAREGivers and clients according to hobbies and interests to ensure that they can build long lasting relationships.
"Obviously in-home care is not suitable for everyone but i was very pleased to meet Mrs Townsend and to learn first hand of the value she places on home help and companionship services she receives which have enabled her to maintain her independence in an environment she feels comfortable in"
Sarah Slater said: "We were delighted to welcome Mark Pawsey he was really interested in the work we and enjoyed meeting our wonderful clients and their exceptional CAREGivers.
"To be able to continue living in your own home is so important and our CAREGivers help older people to do just that, by providing person centred care and companionship. Because our calls are a minimum of one hour we have time to care and to chat with our clients, we are so proud of everyone in our team they all genuinely make a difference every day."
