A new home care service owned by national care home group, Kingsley Healthcare, has opened its head office in Cheshire.
The Mayor of Trafford, councillor Robert Clinton, declared Kingsley Home Care Services open at a ribbon-cutting ceremony at the premises in Partington last week.
To mark the launch, the service presented two benches and a donation to the Partington branch of the Royal British Legion.
Company director Lisa Brown said: “We are delighted to mark our official launch with a donation to this very worthy cause.
“As a company, we are here to support local communities across Cheshire and have pledged to place ourselves at the very heart of them.”
Kingsley Healthcare started in Suffolk 20 years ago with one care home, and has since grown into a national group, employing more than 1,600 people, providing residential, dementia and nursing care.
He has plans to expand the service in the south of England, with further branches in Suffolk, Norfolk, Dorest and Buckinghamshire.
”It will be built on a foundation of compassion and trust to care for and support the most vulnerable people in our society,” said director Ian Smallwood.
The new business is looking to engage with local schools and offer work experience to young people embarking on a career in social care.
It will also work closely with Trafford Council to offer employment support and opportunities to local people.
Newly-appointed branch manager Tracy Adamson has already started recruiting carers and had the chance to meet prospective clients at the service’s stand at the Royal Cheshire Show on June 18 and 19.
She said: “I am delighted to have joined the team at Kingsley Home Care Services right at the start of an exciting journey.
“Kingsley is already a trusted name in the care home market and we are bringing all that expertise to bear in our new venture.”
