A WHARFEDALE care agency is celebrating its 15th anniversary.

Rest Assured Homecare Services has been providing care to adults in their own homes in Otley and the surrounding areas since 2005.

Run by partners Marcia Sunderland and Angela Dickinson, the company employs 16 members of staff.

Reflecting on the special difficulties that 2020 has thrown up, Marcia paid tribute to the workforce.

She said: “Our staff have faced many challenges this year with the flooding, firstly, for several consecutive weekends which found them wading through knee-deep water to ensure our service users received their essential care calls.

“And during the last few months we have worked incredibly hard to ensure our service users have stayed safe during the pandemic. We are very proud of our staff who go above and beyond in extremely difficult times.”
