Introducing Richard and Emily Magrath from Caremark

Husband and wife team Richard and Emily Magrath are the owners of Caremark (North Down, Ards & Belfast), running a successful domiciliary care service for vulnerable individuals in Belfast as the surrounding areas.

Caremark - Richard and Emily MagrathFranchising was always the right choice for them, but when it came to deciding which franchise to choose, Caremark’s core values are what attracted the couple to the company.

"After doing some research, there was really no doubt in our minds, that the only choice we would be happy with would be Caremark, given the emphasis on care and not profit," recalled Richard.

The Magraths also identified that the care sector is a growing industry, and that there was a real need and opportunity to raise the bar in providing care.

Despite being able to grow their relatively young Caremark franchise into a successful business in such a short time, the couple have ensured that their home life hasn’t suffered as a result.

"Family is very important to us, and we put a great emphasis on spending time together," the pair commented. "It’s very full on, but we are very happy to put the hours in to see our business grow and be successful."

The pair were recently awarded the Caremark Regional Award for the North West 2013, celebrating their quality care, excellent client reviews and fast growth.

"We want to become, not only the care provider of choice, but also the employer of choice, as we recognise the importance of continuing to value and develop the Caremark team."
