Agincare Founder and Chairman Derek Luckhurst opened his first care home in Weymouth in 1986. Since then Agincare has grown to become one of the largest independent care providers in the UK.

We employ 4,000 fully trained team members at over 85 locations to deliver high-quality personalised care nationwide.

Regulated by the Care Quality Commission (CQC), we work in partnership with major public sector organisations including local authorities and the NHS, and deliver care and support for many private clients too. Our fully managed services include retirement villages, residential care and nursing homes, supported and assisted living as well as domiciliary care and 24-hour tailored live-in care at home.

Part of the family

Unlike many other care companies, despite our success and rapid growth, Agincare remains family-owned with no external investors.

Our continued growth and national presence are through self-funded expansion and diversification of services driven by people with a passion for what they do.

The Luckhurst family isn’t planning on selling out. And with no exit strategy planned, the three sons of our founder Derek Luckhurst are taking a leading role in the organisation, having learnt care from the ground up.

An innovative vision for the future of care

Agincare Founder and Chairman Derek Luckhurst opened his first care home in 1986 after spotting the need for a new style of care home. One which offered high-quality, personalised and affordable care at a time when many other care homes offered their residents minimal facilities in soulless buildings.

Fast forward to today, and Agincare has grown to operate many homes and new services nationwide, all built on the same ethos of delivering high-quality, personalised and affordable care.

Agincare’s future is bright

Agincare continues to evolve as demand for care changes, emerging as one of the largest independent care groups in the country.

We are committed to growing organically and sustainably in years to come, providing peace of mind for those who draw on our services and their loved ones, as well as everyone who builds their career with us.

Benefits of a large care group

Agincare is one of the few providers nationwide that offer a comprehensive range of care options. It’s how we can tailor your care to you in a way few others can.

Being part of a large care organisation also helps us foster a learning culture across the whole group. Lessons and improvements from one part of the organisation can be shared through every part of Agincare. We know that our team members are our greatest asset, and our in-house training partner Training Now, which is rated Good by Ofsted and endorsed by Skills for Care, oversees our teams’ professional development, and works with other care organisations too.
