Caremark franchise wins new contract

Caremark Aylesbury and Wycombe, a home care franchise, has partnered with Carers Bucks, a charity providing support to unpaid family carers, to operate their out of hours In Case of Emergency (ICE) service in Aylesbury Vale.

The ICE concept enables family carers to register for a carer to be provided in an emergancy when they are unexpectedly unable to care for a family member in need. The partnership means that Caremark will now provide this service outside office hours, while Carers Bucks will continue to provide it within office hours.

Franchise owners of Caremark Aylesbury and Wycombe, Janis Anderson, said: "We are delighted to be in partnership with Bucks Carers who provide an essential service to the many people in this county who care for a family member at home. It is a logical extension of the home care that Caremark provides throughout Aylesbury Vale and Wycombe."
