Meanwhile, a new homecare service – set up in the midst of the pandemic – is celebrating a period of rapid growth.

Newcastle-based Happiest At Home was created to deal with the ever-growing national problem facing individuals and their families who need support, but don’t want to go into residential care.

The success of the company’s system led to a nationwide demand for their tailormade service – and a first year turnover of around £1million.

The organisation, based at Dobson House, Gosforth, has tried to address some of the challenges faced by statutory home care providers and the pressure they are under.

The system – plus rates of pay among the best in the country – has seen them attract widespread interest in jobs, including from a number of qualified nurses.

Sam Hackett, director at Happiest at Home, said: “We launched in November 2021 and have grown much faster than we anticipated. We knew what the challenges were that needed to be addressed to create a service that worked for both care staff and for clients.

“We know the majority of people want to keep their independence and prefer to remain in their own homes,” said Sam.

As well as across the North East, Happiest at Home now has clients as far afield as Scotland, Northern Ireland and across the south of the country.

“Everyone is well aware that the care industry is in real crisis,” said Sam.

“We believe that what we are doing is a way of keeping people working within this industry and getting well paid for it.”
