Significant client growth at Bright Care, the Scottish, family-owned domiciliary care provider, has prompted a move to new and bigger offices at Kirkhill House, Newton Mearns, on the south side of Glasgow.
Previously based in Clarkston, Glasgow, Bright Care’s new 1,200 square foot Glasgow South office accommodates six office based staff who, in turn, oversee the work of over 50 carers active in communities across the southside of the city.
The new premises, which comprise an extensive staff training facility, represent the latest advance in the company’s growth strategy and build directly on Bright Care’s existing portfolio of offices in Edinburgh, Glasgow, East Dunbartonshire and Perth. Further expansion in Scotland is anticipated later this year.
Tim Cocking, co-founder with his wife, Louise, and managing director of Bright Care, said: “Over the past 18 months we have seen a tripling in the number of care hours we provide from our Glasgow South operation.
“We currently look after over 80 clients there and continue to see demand increase, largely through increasing word of mouth referrals which we know is due to us having consistently delivered a very high standard of care, service and attention to our clients over the last three years. I think our clients also appreciate the fact that we are a family-owned in-home care company who works directly with private families, as opposed to a large corporate set up.”
The Glasgow South office is run by Care Manager Karen McGregor who has extensive professional experience in the care sector.
Bright Care works exclusively with self-funded, private individuals who have chosen to live independently at home rather than in a residential or nursing home. It strategically chooses not to contract with local authorities. The service includes everything from assisting with the linen and laundry to intensive live-in care for people with more complex needs.
The company already employs 180 people and has grown its turnover since starting-up in 2008 to £2.5 million.
