Care scheme staff celebrate highest possible rating
STAFF at an extra care domiciliary care scheme in London are celebrating after being awarded the highest possible rating by CSCI. 
Sanctuary Care's Trellis House was upgraded from two stars to three following a spot check inspection at the home, which has 42 adults aged over 60. 
Extra care services manager Lynne McKee said: 'When I found out we had been upgraded I burst into tears. I just feel so incredibly proud of the staff."

Shortage prompts New Zealand recruitment drive
A SHORTAGE of home carers in the UK has prompted one care agency to launch a recruitment drive on the other side of the world. 
Corinium Care managing director Camilla Miles, who founded the company in 1995, has flown out to New Zealand to find carers for the company's elderly and disabled clients. 
She says she has struggled to find enough suitable people in the UK, despite the economic downturn and rising unemployment figures.
