Glenn returns to care industry with homecare move
GLENN has been involved in the sector since he was 10, and one of his first memories is playing cards and dominoes with residents at his parents' care home. 
But after selling the family business Supreme Care Homes in 2006 when his parents decided to retire, he has taken on Guisborough domiciliary care business SureCare Services - renaming it Heritage Healthcare - and has secured the future of more than 100 jobs. 
Glenn said: 'I had a choice two years ago of either borrowing some money to buy the business from my parents or sell the company and look for something else, which is what I did."

Provider to open 11 new offices
A HOMECARE provider is set to open 11 new offices during the first few weeks of 2009 - creating up to 500 new jobs. 
Hampshire-based Bluebird Care, which has grown from just one office two years ago to 34 today in England Scotland and Ireland, also plans to open seven further offices later in the year. 
Managing director Paul Tarsey said the company's success reflects public demand for professional care in people's own homes, based on personal preference and cost-effectiveness.
