Sodexo, a ‘quality of life’ services firm, has announced the acquisition of The Good Care Group, a live-in care market in the UK.
Founded in 2009, The Good Care Group provides tailored live-in care services to consumers, in their homes, who require assistance to live independently, or, have complex care needs. It is one of the few businesses of its type to be rated ‘Outstanding’ by the Care Quality Commission in the UK.
The acquisition enables Sodexo, present in the UK home care market through Prestige Nursing + Care, to expand its offer, while meeting the needs and preferences of consumers by providing high-quality live-in care services, with the expertise to tailor the care for those individuals living with dementia or other specialist conditions.
Following the acquisition, Jonathan Bruce, currently Managing Director of Prestige Nursing + Care, will become CEO of Sodexo’s home care business in the UK, supported by Belinda Berkeley, currently Managing Director of the Good Care Group, as Managing Director.
Together they will lead the strategic development of Sodexo’s UK home care business comprised of Prestige Nursing + Care and The Good Care Group. Dominique Kent, currently COO of The Good Care Group, will lead the continued growth of The Good Care Group as Managing Director and continue her role as Vice Chair of the UK Home Care Association.
Sarosh Mistry, CEO Sodexo Home Care Worldwide, said: “Both Sodexo and The Good Care Group share a common mission to help our consumers age in their homes as independently and comfortably as possible. This cultural alignment is key to Sodexo and it is its core values that makes The Good Care Group such a natural fit into Sodexo’s Worldwide Home Care business. The Good Care Group has built a very successful business in the UK, based on delivering high-quality live-in care. Together, we see tremendous opportunity to offer a choice of home care solutions to consumers with complex care needs.”
