Local care company wins two awards for outstanding achievement

Richard and Emily Magrath are celebrating a fantastic start to 2019, after Caremark North Down, Ards & Belfast took home not one, but two, industry-recognised awards. Richard, Emily and their team have been crowned as best office in their respective region and overall ‘Best Office’ seeing off competition from over 100 Caremark offices in the UK.

Both awards were given to Richard, Emily and their team at a glittering gala event, which took place on the 25th of January, at the Marriott Forest of Arden Hotel in Warwickshire, England. Richard was thrilled to receive both awards, on behalf of Caremark North Down, Ards & Belfast.

“This rating is testament to our incredible team and the hard work they put in every day. This truly was a group effort, and something we’re proud to celebrate collectively. By putting our clients’ needs at the forefront of our business, we’ve built a compliant and compassionate culture and we’re passionate about maintaining this standard. We speak on behalf of the team when we say that this is just the beginning. Our focus was to build a strong team and provide an impeccable standard of care, right from the get-go. We’ve achieved all that and more,” says Richard.

Caremark North Down, Ards & Belfast qualified for both awards for clearly demonstrating commitment to the local community. On top of this, Richard and Emily have continued to grow further this year whilst still achieving a top rating from their regulatory inspector. They have maintained a level of growth which sets them apart from other similar businesses.

David Glover, the Managing Director of Caremark in the UK, was pleased to honour the client-focused business on the night.

“It’s been incredible to watch Caremark North Down, Ards & Belfast go from strength to strength and we’re very proud to work with such a compassionate and professional provider. Richard and Emily are both great examples of all that is right within the care sector. They confidently run a real ‘family feel’ office where their staff are highly valued and aptly rewarded. They are capable and caring directors and, on behalf of myself and the head office team, thank you both for continuingly going above and beyond for your team of care workers, your office staff, and all of your clients.”

We support over 6000 customers and employ more than 5400 carers who deliver on average, over 96,000 hours of care, every single week, across the UK. Established in 2005, we are proud to be a wholly UK owned and operated home care franchise which has an established and successful UK based network. 43% of Caremark franchisees are female, which is almost double the national franchising average. It's a figure we are really proud of. Not only that, but a large proportion of our management team are women, including our Managing Director, Finance Director, National Operations Manager and National Training Manager. The UK has an ageing population which is estimated to grow some 58% in the next 20 years. As the demand for more complex and highly professional levels of care increases, we continue to provide a quality service to those in need of help and support. There is also a developing awareness that care at home can benefit not only those individuals in need but the hospitals and other organisations that are also responsible for looking after them.
