Alcedo Care Group opens office in Preston
One of the UK’s top-rated home care groups has launched a new base in Preston.
Fast growing family-run home care provider, Alcedo Care, has opened a new regional office at Fulwood Business Park in Preston to support and accelerate its ambitious expansion plans for the Lancashire region.
Complementing the group’s existing offices in Blackpool, Southport and Wigan, the new Preston office will be headed up by experienced registered manager Claire Culshaw who takes responsibility for delivering the company’s award winning portfolio of personal care, support and nursing services to those wishing to remain independent in their own homes.
Representing an investment of £200,000 for Alcedo Care, the new office launches with 32 dedicated employees, which it will look to increase by another 60-70 over the next six months, and has the capacity to service approximately 200 clients across the Lancashire area. It will also become the Group’s regional hub for meetings and staff recruitment, training and development.
Managing director at Alcedo Care, Andy Boardman, commented: “We experienced a huge increase in demand for home care services during the recent lockdown with many new enquiries coming in from Lancashire.
“Opening a dedicated office in Preston is a natural expansion for us, providing us with a new framework and infrastructure to service our new clients and deliver the highest standards of care and compassion for which we are renowned. We look forward to expanding further across the region and taking on more permanent employees as we grow.”
Preston office manager Claire Culshaw added: “I’m delighted to take responsibility for the Preston office, along with my deputy Robyn Bamber. The team and I are very much looking forward to expanding the Alcedo Care services further across the region, building our existing client base and really getting to know them as individuals.”
Established in 2017, Alcedo Care continues to expand at pace and is fast gaining an enviable reputation as the home care provider of choice thanks to its superb 500-strong team of highly skilled and compassionate carers who make a tangible difference to the quality of life of the company’s home care clients.
Run by Andy and Jo Boardman, a passionate husband and wife team, the company aims to bring something different to the sector based on recruiting only the very best carers and retaining them by placing value on job satisfaction, training, continued professional development, internal promotion prospects and pay structure. This combined with using the very latest technology is what sets the Alcedo Care Group apart from other home care providers.
With offices in Southport, Blackpool, Wigan and now Preston, Alcedo Care offers home care services across the whole of the North West region.
