Abicare has announced the appointment of a new head of Live-in Care Operations.
Jake Smith joins the company after working as a regional care director and area manager for a national home care provider.
He has also worked in managerial and director level roles in the finance and retail sectors.
Commenting on his appointment, Smith said: “Helping clients to live comfortably and safely within their own homes has become a passion.
“I recently joined Abicare as the head of Live-in Care Operations and I have already seen some great examples of carers and colleagues putting their client at the heart of everything they do. There’s a great sense of satisfaction when we can deliver person-centric care, help make someone’s life easier and provide genuine companionship.
“My role gives me an opportunity to help and support our colleagues to be the best they can be. It’s a people business and we’re only as good as our people.”
