A NEWLY launched care home franchise says it aims to bring 40 jobs to the area over the next year.
Good Oaks East Dorset is led by co-founders, Sam Jones and Adam Downer and has been fully registered with the Care Quality Commission.
It will provide care in people’s homes throughout Wimborne, Ferndown, West Moors, Ringwood and surrounding areas – giving options for both visiting and live-in care.
Sam said: “In the current Covid-19 crisis, the role that carers play in our community is more vital than ever before. Carers provide a lifeline for elderly and vulnerable people, who rely on their assistance to be able to stay in their homes. It is fantastic that this is being recognised.
“This is an important time for all home care businesses and we are excited to be playing our part in combating Covid-19 by increasing the capacity for home care in our local area. We are confident that we will bring 40 jobs to the area in the next year.”
Adam added: “My career in care began when my father became very unwell. I saw the amazing care that he received and started working in home care so that I could give others that same care. Sam and I believe that quality care starts with a careful recruitment process and robust, ongoing training for our carers.
“This protects and enhances the quality of our premium service: the standard of care we would all want for our own loved ones.
“Good Oaks East Dorset works closely with doctors, district nurses, physiotherapists and occupational therapists. We act as the focal point to coordinate and provide the best possible solution for our clients’ wants and needs.”
