An ambitious new home care company has launched in Nottinghamshire, with the aim to become the number one service of its kind in the region.
Your Homecare opened its offices in Mansfield Woodhouse on July 1, and founders, Paul Pitchford and Scott Marsh, already have plans to gain an ‘Outstanding’ accreditation from the CQC within two years.
Denise Pitts has been brought on board as Registered Care Manager, and together, the trio has 20 years’ experience in the adult social care sector.
Marsh said: “Having had close family members experience very different levels of homecare, it’s a personal mission to help create an organisation that has the right values and standards so that care is at the next level.
“We aim to recruit around 100 staff, and we plan to achieve a CQC rating of Outstanding within a couple of years. It’s ambitious, but we’re passionate about what we do so we know it is achievable.”
Marsh is the former CEO of Respectful Care in Nottinghamshire. Under his five-year leadership, the company provided domiciliary care and support services to over 750 clients.
Pitchford, who has a background in developing innovative technology solutions, said: “We’re creating something really special here, somewhere where people with the right credentials will want to come and work. As well as people who really care, we’ll stand out because our staff will be able to use the latest technology and communication tools to help them deliver the high standards of personal care and assistance that clients need.”
He added: “We have done extensive research and scoured the country for examples of best practice. Working with Denise, we will put everything we have learned into Your Home Care and build an organisation that truly makes a difference.”
Your Homecare plans to use a complete cloud solution for care planning and call monitoring, and Pitchford has developed a back office system to ensure a paperless operation.
The business is also speaking with assistive technology companies to help support clients at home.
