Dr Kris Owden, managing director, Caremark (Aylesbury and Wycombe)


Since joining Caremark in November 2020, Dr Kris has introduced the Government KickStart initiative to his franchise to employ ‘care champions’ from the local community.

This team provides mental health and companionship support to clients for free, reducing isolation due to COVID.

He has also offered a guaranteed interview scheme to all those who were made redundant due to COVID, especially from the Arcadia group.

Dr Kris was interviewed by a local radio station and this raised awareness around employment opportunities to those who were struggling.

Another initiative Dr Kris has introduced is the Care for Carers scheme, which enables local unpaid carers to gain training and support for free.

He has also paid for 10 carers to undergo complex care training so his business can support the local council and NHS trusts to discharge patients out of hospital quicker and safely into their own home.
