A touch of sunshine as care providers merge
Sunshine Care, an in-home adult social care provider based in Wisbech and operating in Cambridge, Norwich, Ipswich and Northampton has merged with Nobilis, a Southampton-based care provider.
The merger sees Sunshine Care join the rapidly expanding Nobilis business family of 13 branches that spearhead three key regions, which between them provide 20,000 hours of in-home care per week from more than 1000 carers.
Nobilis offers domiciliary care across the South of England – including the Isle of Wight, the South West, including Bristol and Gloucestershire, plus in Buckinghamshire and Surrey.
Tracey Nesbitt, former MD of Sunshine Care, takes over as head of Operations East for Nobilis. She has wide experience across different roles in the health and social care industry spanning 30 years, with experience including end-of-life, dementia, and care for people with learning disabilities.
Nobilis is one of the country’s leading at-home care providers, offering support to elderly and vulnerable adults across the county who need extra support but want to continue living in the familiarity of their own homes.
Nobilis CEO Peter Harrington said: “Our merger with Sunshine Care gives us a strong presence in the East of England. This, combined with our recent expansion in the South and West of England, cements our commitment to making Nobilis the fastest growing in-home care company in the UK.”
The level of interest in in-home care for vulnerable adults has never been higher. Even before Covid-19 struck the UK, families were searching for new ways of caring for loved ones as an alternative to traditional care homes. Nobilis believes living at home should be a rich and satisfying experience and that caring is a passion and a responsibility;
Nobilis carers work in partnership with families to help with any responsibility or task that helps elderly or vulnerable adults retain a measure of independence at home.
