Andrew Peace

Business Director

01226 242858
Andrew had the vision to create a home care service in Barnsley that delivered the highest standards of care possible in order to improve the quality of life for individuals who choose to remain living in their own homes.

Andrew along with Mark started the Caremark (Barnsley) service in 2011, with the intention to become the best provider of home care in the region.

Over time Andrew recognised a requirement to support people with complex health conditions, to enable them to live an ordinary life in their own community and home.

Caremark's Complex Care Needs service was established alongside the domiciliary service and now supports many people with a diverse range of disabilities and complex health conditions. Supporting people at home, in the community, in educational settings and to enjoy social activities and interests.

We are delighted to be now also supporting people across Rotherham & Sheffield with our complex care service.

Mark established Caremark Barnsley in 2011 with his fellow co-founder Andrew Peace.

Mark has a personal belief that individuals would rather stay within their own homes, retaining their independence, confidence and local friendships.

Clear values, strong leadership and a commitment to attracting the very best staff are fundamental to good service.

Mark has always been passionate about providing excellent service, developing people and building great teams.

Since Caremark's domiciliary service started in 2011 there has been a real interest in also helping support people with complex conditions to live full and ordinary lives in their own home, as a result Caremark’s Complex Care service was born.

Working in close partnership with clients and their families, friends, carers, commissioners, local organisations and hospital teams, we provide safe and effective healthcare services to people in their own homes and communities.

We have a proven track record of supporting a wide range of short and long term complex care conditions and a reputation for delivering excellence across all aspects of case management. We also have experience in developing and implementing large-scale, managed service care provision.

We are delighted to be now also supporting people across Rotherham & Sheffield with our Complex Care service.
