Caremark’s History

18 years and going from strength to strength!

Whilst Caremark itself was founded in 2005, our founder, the late Kevin Lewis started working in the care sector in 1987.

His experience, passion and unrivalled determination to provide high quality care for all, was the building blocks of Caremark 18 years ago.

Today, we are led by David Glover and Lisa Fyfe who are equally as passionate about Caremark and the home-care industry.

Caremark currently care for thousands upon thousands and under their leadership, thousands and thousands more will benefit from home care, the Caremark way.

The start up and transition of Caremark

From opening a large Care home in Brighton and Hove to his first domiciliary care centre. Kevin shared how he got into the care industry and how it made him feel.

Learn just what Kevin’s belief was on the evolution of home care and how the growing local authority market has enabled domiciliary care to be such a lucrative and successful venture.

Integrity and success

In the early 90s, the ‘care revolution’ took place – local authorities stopped being sole suppliers of care and instead enabled private companies to step in as providers.

Kevin’s business was thriving and respected, so social services invited him to branch out into the provision of home care – also known as domiciliary care. Kevin already knew his customers wanted good personal care and support in their own homes, so he seized the opportunity. This venture flourished, and the business soon became a key provider in the area.

Kevin soon recognised that franchising was the best way of providing exceptional care services throughout the country. He developed a detailed and highly specialised care service methodology, incorporating a robust set of policies and procedures.
