National home care provider Caremark has opened a new office in West Yorkshire.
The new office has received its CQC registration to support people living with care needs in the cathedral city of Wakefield.
Julie Oomen has joined the service as managing director after a long career in healthcare.
She said: “I have been closely involved in the provision of health care for people, mainly elderly population, and have come to understand their individual, family and social needs. I became passionate about caring for the elderly and developed a desire to provide the highest standards of professional care and support, backed by Caremark’s systems and processes and ongoing support.”
Oomen added: “Providing care to people in their own homes is a big responsibility and one I take very seriously. Along with that, I’m feeling a lot of excitement. I’m delighted to have achieved CQC registration and be able to provide high quality care throughout the area. My aim is to enable older people to carry on living in their own homes, improving quality of life for them and their families.”
Oomen is supported by registered care manager, Tom Hamill, who has worked in the care sector for several years.
“It’s great to have Tom on board. He is extremely professional yet empathetic in his approach,” said Oomen. “He doesn’t just see clients as names on a piece of paper; he wants to treat every client as you would a close friend or relative. This experience means he has invaluable in-depth and practical knowledge in every aspect of the domiciliary care industry.”
