We know, our marketing team have been going a bit mad recently about our upcoming convention Work and Care Together: Recruitment, Development & Innovation in 2018. In our defence, this is a first for us and in a sense it’s a new way of doing social work conventions. Work and Care Together is a training opportunity for established social work and care professionals, a platform for networking between all areas of social work and care, and a chance to learn about innovative ideas that are in development. It’s kind of a big deal (for us at least). However, despite all our pestering across social media, we’ve still not told you our biggest news about Work and Care Together – the superb Cera Care will be our main partners for the whole convention!
We couldn’t be happier to have Cera signed on in a sponsorship role for our first convention. Their influence in the care sector recently has given them an international platform to showcase how creativity and modernisation can be included in care. As one of our core themes for Work and Care Together is innovation, Cera Care are a perfect fit!
Who Are Cera Care, I hear you ask?
Cera Care are a “multi-award winning, technology-enabled home care provider” who are looking to revamp the way we go about providing care, through the use of AI. Think of them as the Uber of social care (as Wired described them recently). Or a “Deliveroo-style service” if you prefer the Standard’s analogy. Like One Stop Social, they are dedicated to the highest quality of service for care professionals and look to match carers and patients in an efficient and effective manner. The CeraFlex approach combines regular visits (daily, 3 times per day) for £400, with a 24/7 on demand service for additional visits – working out at around half the price of industry standard 24 hour care, for a much higher quality market offering. They provide a more affordable option than live-in care, while still providing the patient (and their loved ones) peace of mind that the carer is available at short notice.
We all give inanimate objects names (just within our team we have cars called Sybil and Betty) – but Cera Care’s Martha is no basic tool: it’s an artificial intelligence assistant that addresses user enquiries and provides decision-support to carers. (Yeah, that took us a moment to grasp too.) They have put together a technological minion for carers, helping to inject a digital awareness to an industry not usually associated with innovative tech.
Why are Cera so popular?
- Quality: They are a top-rated care provider, as shown by their ratings on TrustPilot, Google Reviews and Home Care UK. Cera recently won best Dementia Care provider in the UK, and have been featured in numerous national newspapers and TV channels
- Speed: They can start care within 24 hours of an enquiry
- Affordability: They are more affordable than most care providers
- Availability: They are available 24/7 for enquiries and emergencies
- Our Carers: They only select the top 10% of carers who apply to work with Cera, putting them through a rigorous selection process
- Transparency: Their digital care platform allows you to get updates on your loved one’s care at a click of a button
