SureCare Merseyside Appoints Manager

SureCare Merseyside is to offer personal care and support, live-in care and respite and holiday care to people living in the area, after appointing a new manager.

The company, which only launched in October last year, already provides home services including companionship, cleaning, gardening and DIY, as well as childcare services such as babysitting and mobile crèche for weddings and similar events.

Managing Director Keith Hume has appointed Elaine Edwards as his Registered Manager and will be looking to recruit further. Prior to joining SureCare, Edwards held a similar position with fellow care company, Bluebird Care.

Hume said: “We are delighted to have brought Elaine on board. She is a vastly experienced care manager who was impressed by our strong head office support team, communication and commitment to deliver high quality care.

“We have been extremely pleased with the response we have had to our home services, babysitting and mobile crèche services since launching in October. A number of local hotels have made us their preferred partner for babysitting.

“As soon as our Care Quality Commission (CQC) accreditation is in place, we will be rolling out further services including personal care and support, live-in care and respite and holiday care.

“We are also planning to provide care homes in Merseyside with a temporary staffing service.”

Edwards, whose office is in Waterloo, decided to become a SureCare franchisee after carrying out research which revealed that there was a gap in Merseyside for a high quality, innovative care provider.

Chartered Management Accountant Hume was able to make the investment in the franchise after taking redundancy following more than 25 years working in management roles in the manufacturing industry.

Hume added: “Our team has the experience and flexibility to be able to tailor our services specifically to the needs of the individual client.”
