A new service providing quality care to people in their own homes is being launched by the Rugby branch of Kare Plus.

The town business was launched in January by husband and wife, Richard and Amy Hardy, after securing funding support from Royal Bank of Scotland.

And now, after just six months’ trading, the company is already expanding its range of services.

Based at Rugby Business Centre, the branch provides staff for the private health, care and nursing sectors.

It is now launching a domiciliary care service – part of its growth strategy which has already expanded faster than projected.

To aid this, the firm has hired Cheryl Jones to be its registered care manager, bringing with her 20 years’ experience in hands-on domiciliary care.

It is anticipated the new service will create a further 40 jobs in the Rugby area over the next six months.

Mrs Hardy said: “The business has developed steadily and I’m really pleased with our progress.

“We employ a large team of nurses and carers and the launch of the domiciliary service will see these numbers increase further, while also supporting a wider proportion of our community.

“We were able to gain support from RBS to help start this venture. Our RBS relationship manager, Kip Chahal, made the whole process very straightforward, explaining everything, while being completely supportive of our plans.

“It’s been great to work alongside someone who is so keen to help you build a strong business.”

Mr Chahal said: “This is a solid franchise and I’m pleased we have been able to support this business in Rugby. The new domiciliary service will really enhance the firm’s offering.”

The Rugby branch is part of the national Kare Plus franchise which has more than 60 bases across the UK.
