Alcedo Care opens new office in Darwen in Lancashire

Fast growing Alcedo Care Group has opened a new office in Darwen in Lancashire.

Located at Anchor Court, on Commercial Road, the Darwen and Blackburn office represents a £225,000 investment for the home care group and supports the company’s ambitious plans to take its award-winning home care services to all areas of the North West over the next few years.

Covering Darwen, Blackburn, Ramsbottom and Rawtenstall along with all surrounding areas, the new office launches with a dedicated team of four office staff and 20 carers responsible for delivering the company’s exceptional portfolio of personal care, support, companionship and nursing services to those who wish to remain independent in their own homes.

Alcedo Care is already looking to grow the new office and recruit a further 10 carers per month with the aim of delivering well over 1,000 weekly care hours across the region over the next 12 months.

Managing director at Alcedo Care, Andy Boardman, commented: “We’re delighted to make Alcedo’s top-rated home care services available to more people across Lancashire with the opening of our dedicated new office in Darwen.

“While we do already have some clients in the area, they are located just a little bit too far from our Preston or Bury offices, so a base in Darwen and Blackburn will be perfectly placed to help them and also others with care needs who wish to remain independent in their own homes. From both a client and recruitment perspective, the area is a perfect fit for us and we aim to expand further in the coming months.”

Cindy Cragg has been appointed manager of the new office in Darwen, working with Chelsea Bryans who has recently been promoted to service development manager for Alcedo in the Preston area.

The opening of Darwen and Blackburn brings the total number of Alcedo Care offices in the North West to 12 and complements the company’s existing bases in Southport, Blackpool, Preston, Lancaster, South Lakes, Liverpool, Chester, Wirral, Wigan, St Helens and Bury.

Recently rated one of the Top 20 home care groups for the third year running, Alcedo Care offers Domiciliary Care Services, Live-in Care, Nurse-Led Complex Care Services, Supported Living and Children’s Services and has fast gained an enviable reputation as the home care provider of choice in the North West thanks to its superb 1,000-strong team of highly skilled and compassionate carers who make a tangible difference to the quality of life of the company’s home care clients.

Run by passionate husband and wife team, Andy and Jo Boardman, and with the support of their fantastic management team, the company is expanding at pace and aims to double in size over the next 12 months with the recruitment of more than 1,000 new carers.
