Kendal Office

Premier Care Kendal office recently received a facelift in the form of all new Premier Care branding.

The update reflects the changes after our acquisition Beamsmoor Care in 2014 and demonstrates our commitment to providing care in the Cumbria area for the future.

The Cumbria 2015 Flood Appeal, launched on 5th December, has now reached a third of its £3m target to help the victims of the flood. Thousands of homes and businesses were hit when the country was battered by Storm Desmond last weekend. The Cumbria Community Foundation has pledged £50,000 to the target of £3m which will be used to help flood victims with emergency repairs, cleaning, basic furniture, clothing and food.

Around the county, 15 road bridges remain closed until engineers have inspected them for flood damage. Tesco has announced it will build a temporary store in the next week to replace its flooded Carlisle superstore.

The Premier Care Group has stepped in to save the Beamsmoor Care at Home company in Ulverston - which also serves the Barrow area - and its sister company, Mint Quality Care, serving the Kendal area.

The domiciliary care services provided for older people in both areas will continue with additional management support from Premier Care.

A spokesperson for Premier Care said: “These were two businesses that needed saving and we were able to step in with enough time to ensure there is no loss of service for the customers and the reassurance for their families that they will receive only the highest quality of care.
