HOME CARE EXCELLENCE WAKEFIELD
Marie Binks is the Managing Director of Heritage Healthcare Wakefield, a home care business, delivering services to communities across Wakefield and South Leeds, enabling individuals to remain living independently within the safety, comfort and familiarity of their own homes.
Before becoming a franchise owner, Marie Binks – who qualified in Law – enjoyed a successful career within the business banking sector. A regular volunteer for both her local hospice and youth football team, Marie had built lasting connections within her local community. This love for working with people, as well as Marie’s ambition and drive to make a real and tangible difference to the lives of others led to the launch of Heritage Healthcare Wakefield.
Marie and her Registered Care Manager, Magenta Jordan, now lead a strong team of 10 Care Assistants and together they have quickly established a reputation within the community for providing outstanding levels of care. Heritage Healthcare Wakefield regularly has a waiting list of clients requesting their services and are recognised as a chosen care provider by their local councils and clinical commissioning groups.
Heritage Healthcare Wakefield continues to truly value their community, regularly holding events in order to raise money for a number of worthy causes. Marie also encourages employees to take part in additional training not only to provide a higher level of service to those that they care for but to support the career development of her team.
Going from strength to strength, Marie was recognised as “New Franchise of the Year 2017” at the 3rd Annual Heritage Healthcare Conference and Awards Dinner. Heritage Healthcare Wakefield was commended for excelling within their first year and receiving fantastic feedback from clients, their loved ones and external health care professionals. One client stated, “The care I get is excellent, I couldn’t be more satisfied”.
We have helped so many families to regain their independence and continue to live at home.
