AN 'OUTSTANDING' care provider plans to create 25 new jobs after moving to larger headquarters in Urmston.

Heritage Healthcare Trafford launched three years ago after Mark Collier discovered his mother was being neglected by local care visitors.

Unhappy with the quality of care she was receiving at home, Mr Collier was inspired to improve the level of care available to elderly people in the borough.

He started his own care at home business, based in Sale, which has since grown into the highest-rated care service in Trafford.

Due to the business' continued success and growth, Mr Collier is moving Heritage Healthcare Trafford to larger offices in Urmston.

Mark Collier, managing director, said: “ My parents lived in Urmston for most of their lives and I lived here for 27 years.

"I went to Urmston Grammar school and I still know a lot of people and have a number of friends in the area. Moving the business here feels like coming home.”

Heritage Healthcare Trafford will take up offices at 6 Primrose Avenue in Urmston.

The company now has 58 staff, including two of Collier’s three sons, but plans to create another 25 jobs for local people before the end of the year.

He said: “We are proud to be the only provider of care in the whole of Trafford to be rated as overall “outstanding” by The Care Quality Commission, which regulates and inspects providers of care throughout the country.

"Currently there are 23,000 providers of care registered throughout the UK, and less than 1 per cent are awarded an outstanding rating.

"Our rating is due in no small part to our wonderful and compassionate carers and the dedication of our management team.

"We deliver a great service to our clients and aim to alleviate the stress and worry for their families.

"People are putting their trust in us to support and care for their loved ones.

"We have to get it right and exceed expectations all the time."

The company's management and some of the care team will now be based in their new offices in Eden Square, Urmston from Tuesday, September 4.

He added: "We want to heighten the awareness amongst shop keepers and businesses and the general public about dementia and its effect on people.

"If anybody has relatives or friends with dementia then we are happy to talk to them about their own situations and offer our expert advice.

"Indeed, if anybody wants to talk over the phone without any obligation to use our service, then we are more than happy to try to assist with advice wherever we can."
