Orchard Care’s Mission Statement

Logo_orchard (002)

Orchard Care (SW) Ltd aims to provide social care, with or without accommodation, meals on wheels, and domestic services to elderly people both in a residential, and in a domiciliary setting. Whilst Orchard Care (SW) Ltd remains a `for profit` company its success is intertwined with the provision of high quality and compliant care. Stakeholders in our company`s services are our service users and their relatives, staff, managers and directors of Orchard Care (SW) Ltd.

The service users who commission our services are people over the age of 65 who require social care with or without accommodation. Qualities that make our services stand apart from our competitors are: transparency within our commitment to caring for our client/residents. We treat our service users in a manner that we would wish upon ourselves and our own families. Whilst we make all efforts to demonstrate our compliance to current care standards our primary concern is the delivery of a `person centred, old fashioned` style of care.
