Up to 50 new jobs could be created by the launch of a home care and support provider in Chesterfield.
Respectful Care, Chesterfield, which has offices at Unit 2, Old Brickworks Lane, has been set up to raise the standards of care and improve the working conditions for care professionals in the area.
Wayne Cartwright is the managing director, while Lyndsey Stevenson is the registered care manager.
Wayne brings to the role his 27 years of experience in a customer-focused retail industry, while Lyndsey has held a number of people-management roles in the care industry since leaving school at 16, and joins from one of the largest care providers in the UK.
Wayne said: "With grandparents who have required care, I understand the need to get it right. It’s a very personal thing so carers have to have the required skills and training but something else too."
"I want Respectful Care, Chesterfield to be one of the best around, where clients are happy, and where people are proud to say they work."
Respectful Care, Chesterfield is part of the family of branches launched by Respectful Care. It’s headquarters are in Mansfield and, while it was only registered with the Care Quality Commission (CQC) in 2013, it is already making a name for itself.
Last year it had its first, unannounced, inspection, with a rating of Good across all of the criteria, including safety, effectiveness, caring, responsiveness and leadership.
Lyndsey said: "I’ve worked in the care sector for a long time now and I was so impressed when I saw for myself the work that Respectful Care is doing."
"There is a genuine sense that people really do care, and the protocols and ethos are all about family. The senior teams at Respectful Care are approachable and have a desire to be the best. They really are setting their sights high in terms of care."
Scott Marsh and Mark Docherty, co-CEOs and co-founders of Respectful Care, are growing the company through a series of franchises and through their own branches.
Scott said: "Mark and I are determined to grow a business that has care at its very core, and it is fantastic to see that Wayne and Lyndsey are launching the Chesterfield branch."
"With our support and their commitment, I have no doubt that they will be successful and make a difference to people’s lives."
