Ramsbottom care home sets standard on staff pay

A care home in Ramsbottom has committed to paying all employees more than the National Living Wage, even after its increase in April.  

Lavender Hills Care Home, part of the Millennium Care group, will ensure all staff earn more than the legal requirement which starts in the new financial year.  

Eclipsing the government’s 9.8% rise, the care home has committed due to several factors  including their valuation of the staff team and the key role they play in its residents’ lives. 

The pledge will provide increased financial stability for current and future employees while  supporting the retention of an already consistent staff team which can be a challenge in the  sector. 

Millennium Care is a family-run care provider with over 30 years of experience in the sector, delivering respite, residential, nursing and dementia care across five homes in Lancashire and Greater Manchester.  

Kala Morton, home manager, said: “Our team are hardworking and dedicated to delivering outstanding care to our beautiful residents. I’m amazed and inspired by the team and how they make a difference in residents’ lives supporting Millennium’s vision and values every single day.  

“I’m grateful for their exceptional work and proud to work alongside them. We treat residents with love and compassion as if they were our grandparents and want to ensure they live fulfilled lives which is made incredibly easy thanks to the amazing community links we have in and around Ramsbottom.” 

Stacey Astin, regional manager at Millennium Care, said: “We understand more than anyone the crucial role our care staff bring to Lavender Hills. We want to ensure that a career in care is not only personally rewarding but financially viable  too. 

“The staff team here show the utmost professionalism and are the ultimate drivers as they continue to provide unrivalled care for the residents.”
