Established in January 2016 by husband and wife duo Richard and Amy Hardy, with funding from The Royal Bank of Scotland, Kare Plus Rugby provides staffing solutions to private health, care and nursing facilities.
It is part of the nationwide Kare Plus franchise which now has over 60 branches across the UK.
The launch of the new service is part of a wider growth plan, which has already seen Kare Plus Rugby expand at a faster rate than expected.
Amy Hardy, owner of Kare Plus Rugby, said: “Having done a great deal of work with the elderly in recent years, I became acutely aware of just how important the provision of high quality care is for our aging population.
“With this thought constantly at the forefront of my mind I began to look into how I could combine my desire to support this generation whilst making a living to help support my own family.
“When I discovered Kare Plus I really felt like I had found the opportunity I was looking for and since we began trading the business has developed steadily.
“I’m really pleased with our progress, we now employ a large team of nurses and carer’s and the launch of the domiciliary care service will see these number increase further, whilst also supporting a wider proportion of our community.”
Kip Chahal, relationship manager at Royal Bank of Scotland said: “Kare Plus is a solid franchise and I am pleased that we have been able to support Amy as she has launched the business in Rugby.
“As a young mum and a new starter in the care sector she is proof that through hard work and a great deal of passion you can achieve your ambitions.
“The new domiciliary care service will really enhance the firms offering and will provide much needed support to those needing extra care in the region.”
