Services provider, Sodexo, has announced the acquisition of The Good Care Group, a live-in care provider in the UK.

Founded in 2009, The Good Care Group provides  live-in care services to consumers, in their homes, who require assistance to live independently, or, have complex care needs and has been rated ‘Outstanding’ by the Care Quality Commission in the UK.

The acquisition enables Sodexo, present in the UK home care market through Prestige Nursing and Care, to expand its offer.

Fiona Lowry, CEO of The Good Care Group, said: “The Good Care Group mission is to provide the highest quality home care services, enabling people to enjoy staying in their own homes and community for as long as possible.

“We are proud to have enhanced the quality of life for many consumers in the UK. Now as a part of Sodexo, we have a shared commitment to improving the quality of life of those we serve and expanding the care we can provide.”  

Following the acquisition, Jonathan Bruce, currently managing director of Prestige Nursing and 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 and 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.

Jonathan Bruce, managing director Prestige Nursing and Care, and CEO of UK Home Care, said: “With the acquisition of The Good Care Group, Sodexo is better equipped to meet the varied and evolving needs of an ageing population.  

“Being able to offer live-in care as well as Prestige Nursing + Care’s hourly care service creates a single business that can effectively respond to an array of care needs. It’s exciting to think about how this total in-home care solution can change the lives of so many consumers and their families. It’s about living life to its fullest. “
