Carewatch

The team has been instrumental in helping us strengthen in key geographical areas, which has enabled us to build a high quality national home care services provider.

Scott Christie, CEO, Carewatch

Business

Founded in 1993 with 150 branches nationwide, Carewatch provides home care services to local authority-funded and private clients.

This enables the elderly and people with learning disabilities or health requirements to remain independent.

Market

Demand for supported living services, which allow for community-based living and integration, continues to grow and is the preferred approach for local authorities.

Strategy

Carewatch was acquired from listed owners Nestor Healthcare in October 2008. In partnership with a new management team, our strategy has established Carewatch as a leading care provider in the UK by:

  • Investing in company infrastructure and operations to drive up care standards
  • Harnessing technology to improve processes and increase support to franchisees
  • Extending services for mental health, live-in care and the private pay market
  • Expanding geographical reach through carefully selected add-on acquisitions

Developments

With our support Carewatch has:

  • Become the one of the largest independent national provider of home care and assisted living services
  • Completed the acquisition of Scotland-based specialist care provider RMR
  • Built out its private care capabilities and now provides over 10,000 hours per week
