Caring Times, March 2013

Maggie Candy, home manager of Four Seasons’ Marlborough Court care home in Thamemead, London, was invited by care services minister Norman Lamb to comment on health care policy at the Department of Health in Whitehall in January.

Maggie was one of 10 care professionals nationally selected to take part in an hour long meeting with Mr Lamb to discuss prominent issues concerning the administering of elderly care in the UK.

Mr Lamb asked Maggie’s opinion on an updated white paper regarding care reform; as a reflection of her competence in the care sector.

The minister also promised his commitment to ensuring that top quality care is recognised and celebrated.

Maggie was impressed with Mr Lamb’s knowledge about home care management.

“It was reassuring to meet someone from Government who is so committed to care issues,” said Maggie.
