Independence Matters acquires Breckland Care at Home
Independence Matters has recently completed the purchase of North Elmham-based home care provider, Breckland Care at Home. The move, which brings together two of Norfolk’s social care providers and community interest companies (CICs), means that older and vulnerable people in rural locations across mid-Norfolk will continue to receive the care they need at home.
Breckland Care at Home was formed by GPs at Elmham Surgery, who identified that local people were struggling to find home support. It has been delivering high quality care since 2011 and is held in high esteem by its customers, commissioners and the local community in which it operates. Retired Elmham Surgery GP Dr Simon Hibberd, a former company board member of Breckland Care, has joined the Independence Matters Board as a Non-Executive Director bringing with him a wealth of knowledge and experience.
Sarah Stock, Managing Director of Independence Matters said: “We are delighted that Breckland Care at Home has joined Independence Matters. These are challenging times for the social and health care market and it is rewarding that we are able to support the longer term development and future of this successful and worthwhile venture for the benefit of its customers and the community.
“Independence Matters will uphold the ethos of Breckland Care at Home and support the staff to ensure that it remains a viable and sustainable company that provides good quality care to all the people it supports. Together we will continue to ensure that local people receive the best quality care. We want to offer the reassurance that Breckland Care at Home will continue to provide the same level of service to all its customers and the same staff will continue in their roles.”
