Our Agincare Enable team is delighted to announce the opening of a new supported living for younger adults service in Rainham, Kent with high quality accommodation made up of self-contained studio units and a self-contained annexe.
On a historic day in the fight against coronavirus, a frontline care worker at Agincare’s Cheriton Care Home in Dorchester was the first person in Dorset to be given the Covid vaccination.
We’re delighted to announce that our South Devon End of Life Project, which is part of our live-in care service, has won regional Home Care Team of the Year in the Great British Care Awards.
Our Chief Executive Raina Summerson has been recognised as a Voice of the Industry in Home Care Insight’s inaugural Power List, which recognises and celebrates adult social care’s most influential leaders, who are shining examples of excellence and innovation.
Our Chairman and Founder Derek Luckhurst was honoured with a Lifetime Achievement Award at the prestigious Leaders in Care Awards! The awards ceremony celebrates the achievements of care providers nationwide. It comes as Agincare celebrates the 35th anniversary of Derek opening his first care home in Weymouth.
We were overjoyed to be named as one of Indeed’s top three best private-sector employers!
Another step forward in Agincare’s expansion across the country, we are excited to be opening a new live-in care regional head office in Harrogate, North Yorkshire this spring. Establishing a team in the Harrogate regional head office will give us a local, professional team on the ground, able to match even more clients to our experienced care team members.
Derek decided it was time to house all of the Agincare divisions under one roof. He bought Castletown’s derelict naval bakery, refurbished it and moved the Agincare HQ there from Weymouth harbourside.
“As the company grows, it gives us the ability to recruit more professional and capable staff. It wasn’t until I was able to recruit people like Raina Summerson, who with all their ability and personal qualities and growth potential, that I was able to see as a vision the place where we are at today. I am incredibly proud of the senior management team here at Agincare, they are evolving the business and services that we provide – taking us to a level that 5 years ago I wouldn’t have dreamt of.”
