We would like to say a huge congratulations to Dr Jane Townson, CEO of the Homecare Association, who was awarded an OBE in the New Year’s Honours list for her services to domiciliary care, particularly for her efforts during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Here was Jane’s response:
“Supporting and representing the domiciliary care sector throughout the COVID-19 pandemic and beyond, whilst challenging, has been and continues to be an absolute privilege. To be recognised with an OBE is humbling and I am very grateful to those who nominated me. May the spotlight shine on all homecare workers, managers, and leaders, who dedicate themselves to improving the lives of others with the utmost compassion and commitment. During the pandemic, despite risk to themselves, they continued to go out every day to ensure older and disabled people could live safely and well at home, acting as a lifeline for many.”
Congratulations Jane, from everyone at Consultus.
