Wicklow home care company wins Regional Home Care Business Award

Caremark East Wicklow, a leading provider of home care within the community, has been awarded the title of top-performing business in its region at the Caremark Franchise 2024 awards.

The regional title was given to the franchise at an annual ceremony held during this year’s Caremark conference, where 126 offices were in the running for awards.

This win for Caremark East Wicklow recognises franchise owner Martin Gavaghan for managing an excellent business over the course of 2023. They were voted for above others for not only delivering exceptional care but also providing support to fellow franchise owners and positively contributing to the wider franchise network.

Paul Boucher, Managing Director of Caremark Ireland, comments on the win: “Caremark East Wicklow is a true beacon of success within our franchise network. When Martin took the reins in May 2019, it turned over just €162k annually, but he has transformed it through relentless hard work, unwavering dedication, a strategic focus on growth, and, of course, unparalleled standards of care for customers. Today, the franchise boasts an incredible €2.7 million annual turnover—a testament to Martin’s entrepreneurial prowess.

“Martin’s commitment extends beyond financial success, as he actively fosters a culture where team members thrive and collaborate towards shared goals. Under his leadership, Caremark has become the largest provider in the area, a testament to the dedication, care and unity of his team.

Yet, Martin’s ambition knows no bounds, as he sets his sights on acquiring the adjoining territory, driven by a passion to further expand the reach and impact of Caremark. This achievement is a testament to Martin’s vision, leadership, and unyielding commitment to excellence. Well done.”

David Glover, joint CEO of Caremark, also comments on the franchise’s achievement: “Congratulations to Caremark East Wicklow for winning this highly sought-after regional title. The award acknowledges all the hard work and dedication the team has put in over the past year and is extremely well-deserved. They are complete ambassadors for the franchise, embodying our values to improve lives and enable customers to enjoy life as independently as possible.

“As a franchise network, we’ve collectively delivered more than 6 million hours of home care to people this year and continue to streamline our business model to become more effective within the community. It’s with thanks to our biggest team players like Caremark East Wicklow who make it all possible.”
