Professor Martin Green, CEO of Care England, has hailed a “simply brilliant” care village serving the Jewish community.
Jewish charity, The Fed, recently welcomed Martin for a tour of its Heathlands Village in Bury, Greater Manchester.
Fed Chief Executive, Mark Cunningham, said: “We were extremely excited to welcome him. Martin is an outstanding advocate for the Care industry and is incredibly supportive of care providers across England. Thanks to him the key issues of workforce development, recruitment, fair fees and a celebration of what social care and care homes provide, are never off the table.”
During his tour, Martin commented on the “multi-dimensional and diverse” setup at the Heathlands which includes a care home, central café, children’s centre and synagogue.
The Care England also learnt about The Fed’s ground-breaking collaboration with Bury NHS which includes providing space for one of their integrated teams of social workers and nurses and its innovative Discharge to Assess partnership with Bury Council and the NHS which has so far saved 6,000 bed nights.
Martin added: “Heathlands Village is used extensively by the wider community and there’s something here for the whole family. It couldn’t be further removed from people’s image of social care: what we’ve created isn’t in old age home – it is an all-age home!”
