Garry Costain and Jayne Costain have owned and operated Caremark Thanet since October 2012. The married couple will soon be bringing their impeccable standard of care to clients throughout Sandwich, Deal and the surrounding areas, as they launch Caremark Dover.
Caremark Thanet, whose office is in Margate, already provides over 2,200 hours of care every week to local residents. When clients in Dover started to enquire about in-home care packages, Garry (59) and Jayne (52) made the decision to launch a new office, entirely committed to meeting the needs of clients across Dover and the surrounding areas.
“In the six years since we launched Caremark Thanet, we’ve built a reputation as one of the best and most trusted in-home care providers in the area,” explains Garry. “We’re often approached by individuals with care needs in neighbouring Dover so, we decided to launch in an area with a real demand for quality care. We are so thrilled to expand the business and we are determined to bring the very highest standard of care to our new clients.”
Aiming to become an employer of choice in the area, Garry and Jayne are looking to build a team of like-minded support staff and care workers. A key focus for the couple is to recruit individuals who are keen to replicate their caring and hardworking mindset.
“Having already employed over 100 office staff and care workers at our Thanet office, we’re looking forward to bringing employment to a new area. Offering sustainable employment opportunities in a sector with real prospects is something we both feel extremely passionate about. Over the coming weeks and months, we’ll be looking to expand our team of care workers so that we can offer support to more people and change more lives for the better,” adds Jayne.
Garry and Jayne came to launch a care business together after successful careers in management and nursing, respectively.
“Our backgrounds meant we were well placed to launch a compassionate and compliant business. When we first started Caremark Thanet, we had two clear goals – to provide the best possible standard of in-home care to the local community and to bring employment to the area. Six years on, we continue to live by these objectives,” says Garry.
As a testament to the couple’s hard work since launching the business, Caremark Thanet has recently been commended by the Department of Work and Pensions, for being a disability confident employer. Working with the local Job Centre Plus (JCP) offices, in Margate and Ramsgate, Garry and Jayne have worked with many care workers who have come to the business through this process. The community minded couple regularly work with the local JCP offices to help people with disabilities find employment.
Husband and wife duo, Garry and Jayne, plan to emulate this level of care and integrity in their new Dover-based business.
