With 678 home care groups in the UK, the awards are based solely on reviews from the people they care for, plus their family and friends.

With nearly a million disabled and older people receiving care at home so that they can continue to live independently in their own homes, the range of services provided by Alcedo Care are in demand.

The awards cherry pick the best home care groups and providers in the UK, with Alcedo clients encouraged to rate all aspects of the services they receive, including quality of care, compassion and value for money.
