“My wife, Annabella, and I both had corporate careers in London and overseas but when we moved to rural Buckinghamshire we decided we wanted a change by providing a service that could make a real difference to people’s lives.
We had both realised the importance of the role of carers when our own parents had needed them and, in particular, my father’s carers allowed for him to have his final days in his own home surrounded by his family and his memories of happier times in the family home. This planted the seed that led to us buying 1st Homecare in Leighton Buzzard in 2012 and which we have since grown to three offices covering Leighton Buzzard, Kings Langley, Oxford and Abingdon, across four counties.
For every one of our 200 or so clients we aim to provide a first class service enabling every one of them to live at home with choice, dignity and respect.
1st Homecare is very much a flourishing family business of which I am very proud.”
The company was formed in Leighton Buzzard in January 2010 and gained CQC accreditation in June 2010. Since then the company has grown organically in and around Leighton Buzzard and, in February 2016, we bought another home care provider which is now called 1st Homecare (Oxford) Ltd as systems and processes were standardised across the group. A third branch was added in June 2019 when we bought Ainsworth Care based in Kings Langley, Hertfordshire.FIND OUT MORE
