National home care franchise Caremark Limited has concluded its recent intensive training course for new franchisees, with new business owners Jo Fitzmaurice and Hayley Parkins being amongst the latest group to successfully complete the course. Jo and Hayley, who are sisters, are now in the process of setting up their Bedford offices whilst awaiting their registration with the Care Quality Commission.
“We are really looking forward to getting our business started and are currently recruiting and training Care and Support workers in readiness for the launch day,” said Hayley. “It’s a very exciting time for us both.”
The sisters have lived in the borough for many years, with Jo serving as a Parish Councillor and a School Governor in the village of Wymington. Recognising the need for high quality home care in their locality and the difficulties faced by families in the area, together with their own mother’s illness and need of care, has been a strong motivator for Jo and Hayley to give something back to their community.
Hayley explained: “Our research into the availability of quality care and support provision, both nationally and locally, reinforced our belief that there is a need for the high standard of quality care such as that provided by Caremark Limited.
“Being able to share in the knowledge and experience of other Caremark offices in the network will undoubtedly be of benefit to us both as Care providers and those to whom we deliver the service in the borough.”
