A new home care business is recruiting in York and Harrogate after receiving its registration from the Care Quality Commission (CQC).
Minster Home Care started the registration process in October, but this was delayed due to the coronavirus pandemic.
However, the team has been working hard to get the business up and running, and interviews finally took place at the end of last month.
Dez Ward set up Minster Home Care after working within a domestic home franchise.
“This job helped me find a real passion for care and customer service. With more and more adults wanting to stay in their own homes in later life and along with my experience in working in a similar business model, we decided to take the plunge to start Minster Home Care and have never looked back,” he said.
“It truly is a dream come true for me and I will gain huge job satisfaction from knowing I have helped families and people who need our support to remain in their own homes.”
Minister Home Care provides personal care, respite care, palliative care, dementia care and companionship to people in York and the surrounding areas.
Reflecting on the registration process, he said: “We relished in the time it took to register with the CQC as we were able to find our feet within the industry and establish our brand. We have been recruiting and training several new employees, as well as formulating a plan for the future and how Minster Home Care will expand within the coming years.
He continued: “Hearing about our successful registration with the CQC really was the icing on the cake. We have built this company from nothing and we now have a team of people who have a real passion to make a difference in people’s lives. Now that we have been registered, we can provide regulated activities to the people who need us the most.”
