Working at Westmorland Homecare

Westmorland Homecare is a company that has been built and sustained through the spirit and determination of two doctors, Dr Joshua Macaulay and Dr Chris Moss, who saw a need in the community for a service that provided an excellent quality of home-care and decided to make a difference.

From there, Dr Macaulay and Dr Moss built a team to action this dream, inspired by their ideas and philosophy to make a difference.

Today, Westmorland Homecare are a multi award-winning provider of personal care services covering south Cumbria, the southern Lake District, north Lancashire, Poulton-le-Fylde and the surrounding Fylde coast and Wyre district.

We encourage people from all backgrounds and experiences to get in touch, we pay one of the highest hourly rates to our home care assistants and in return want to attract high quality and passionate home care assistants to our growing team.

Here is an insight from some of our team at Westmorland Homecare explaining what it’s like to work for such an innovative company.

I have worked in care for many years, moving across to Westmorland Homecare has been the best career decision I have made. The service is set up in way that the whole team feels very cared for and supported. It is a joy to be able to support the staff in their training and development. I have never worked in a serviced where we have two full time members of staff looking after ongoing training and supporting our teams across the community. It really is a please to come to work.
