National care homes group Kingsley Healthcare will launch a new home care service next month.
Kingsley Home Care Services will open its first branch in Partington, Greater Manchester, with plans to roll out the service across the UK.
It will offer hourly care and live-in care services, as well as a concierge service to provide clients with an extra tier of support.
Newly-appointed branch manager Tracy Adamson (pictured) said she has started recruiting carers and is looking forward to meeting prospective clients at Kingsley’s stand at the Royal Cheshire Show on June 18 and 19.
She said: “I am delighted to have joined the team at Kingsley Home Care Services right at the start of an exciting journey.
“Kingsley is already a trusted name in the care home market and we are bringing all that expertise to bear in our new venture.
“I am looking forward to telling show goers all about the innovative aspects of our new service, which, in the near future, will include the use of cutting-edge smart technology. This will allow the monitoring of everything from medication and sleep to temperatures around the home –all affording both clients and their families much greater assurance.”
Kingsley co-founder and CEO Sumi Thayan has plans to expand the home care service nationally, with further branches in Suffolk, Norfolk, Dorset and Buckinghamshire.
Thayan said: “We are tremendously excited to be building on the Kingsley brand during what is our 20th anniversary year. We will be bringing our trusted values as a family owned business to our new venture.”
Kingsley Healthcare started in Suffolk with one care home and has grown into a national group employing more than 1,600 people, providing residential, dementia and nursing care.
Adamson, who has nearly 25 years’ experience working in the care sector, said she had known from a young age that she wanted to work in the care sector with older people.
“I feel the journey I have had, from initially starting employment as a care assistant at 18 years old through to senior carer, care co-ordinator and then into management, gives me the hands on experience to really understand the requirements of our service users and staff,” she said.
