Blue Ribbon Care - Leicestershire & Rutland

What does it do?

Blue Ribbon in Leicestershire is based in Market Harborough and is owned and managed by Cathy Thompson, a Registered General Nurse (RGN) with over 25 years experience in the NHS.

Cathy has lived in Market Harborough for over 10 years and has excellent local knowledge offering services throughout the town of Market Harborough, local villages and the surrounding areas.

Blue Ribbon is committed to providing a high quality, flexible, and friendly service while offering good value for money. The service we offer is built around our Client’s needs and we involve Clients and their families in our care planning, whether funded privately, through personalised budgets/direct payments or managed budgets.  Our service allows Clients to remain in their own home, where they can be surrounded by familiarity and personal possessions; rather than an unnecessary, disruptive and life changing move into Residential Care.

Care Visits can be from as little as 30 minutes or up to a full 24 hour live-in care service. We can assist you with:
  • House work
  • Laundry
  • Shopping and meal preparation
  • Personal care
We are also happy to assist in social care enabling clients to keep in touch with friends, take part in other activities such as clubs and societies or in the attendance of general appointments.

Additional information:

Our Care Workers are fully vetted during recruitment by the Criminal Records Bureau (CRB) and The Independent Safeguarding Authority (ISA). Our Carers are only selected if they are able to show a genuine skill in caring and helping people.

All Carers receive induction training and on-going appraisals to ensure that they are working to the latest care standards and to develop any future training opportunities.  We have robust quality monitoring, involving regular service reviews and we welcome feedback and comments from our Clients, families and friends.
