The Superior Healthcare Group was founded by colleagues Stewart Thorp and Sarah Richards in 2006 - five years after Stewart's sister Katie had been involved in the road traffic accident.
Having sustained a traumatic brain injury, Katie spent two months at King's College Hospital, London, before being transferred to Chailey Heritage where she spent a further year before being discharged to her family home with the aide of round-the-clock care.
Sarah, a Registered Nurse, was managing the local branch of a national care provider. In 2002, Sarah would become responsible for providing the care team that would support Stewart and his family to care for Katie at home.
By working with a team of care workers, therapists, care and case managers and lawyers over a period of five years, Stewart and Sarah identified the need for a care provider that would bridge the gap between small agencies and national providers - the path for The Superior Healthcare Group was paved.
Today, we operate specialist agency and complex care divisions which collectively deliver more than 400,000 hours of care each year.
