New name for homecare association


Posted on December 1st, by editor in Caring Times. No Comments

The British Association for Domiciliary Care (BADCO) has been renamed “Ceretas” ­ a derivation from the latin for “caring”. The name-change, made at a special launch at the London Eye in November, will allow an increased range of membership levels, allowing people from the industry to enter to a senior level. Ceretas plans to provide forums throughout the country for homecare workers, support for NVQ training and workshops on latest good practice. At the launch, Ceretas chair Mary Bryce said it was the aim of Ceretas to promote best practice throughout the industry. “We are committed to to supporting front line care workers as well as their supervisors and managers,” she said.
