Fast-growing care provider Good Oaks Home Care has opened a new office in South West London.
The new Wimbledon and Kingston office will create an initial 15 jobs in the local community, with more on the horizon as the company expands.
Arpan Patel, the new director of the Good Oaks office, previously worked in finance and home renovation.
Commenting on his decision to enter the care sector, he said: “From a personal point of view, both my parents are in their 80s and my brother has Down Syndrome. Although he gets good care, I’m aware that there is a lot of help out there that could be improved. My family live in different areas but it’s more the concept of Good Oaks Home Care – being able to help people and the community where I live. I live in Wimbledon myself.”
The team is currently hiring carers and recently welcomed Care Manager Sujina Hannan to the team.
Patel added: “I am really excited to be bringing Good Oaks care to the area – it’s knowing that you have changed someone’s life. It takes a very special person to be a carer. We are after carers with passion and experience, we want the people we work with to do it because they love it.”
