Care home staff to get bumper pay rise

BOWOOD Court and Mews care home in Redditch has confirmed its team will receive an inflation busting pay increase, with the lowest paid getting a further 5.5 per cent, nearly four time the rate of inflation.

Hundreds of Adepts team members saw their wages boosted by nearly £1,000 per annum in April 1.

The firm employs more than 600 carers nationwide, 106 at Bowood Court alone.

Dave Lock, managing director for Adept Care Homes said: “The dedication and commitment our carers deliver every day when caring for our residents underpins our success. We believe in investing in our staff.”

A care assistant at Bowood added: “This pay rise will make such a difference to my family’s life – that bit extra every month means we can do so much more.”
