With a trio of offices already well established in Merseyside, Alcedo Care continues to grow in the region, opening a new branch in Birkenhead.

Signalling an investment of circa £225,000 and creating approximately 75 local jobs, Alcedo’s new Merseyside office is located at Woodside Business Park on Shore Road.

The fast-growing, independently owned and family run home care provider remains committed to supporting clients across the region, with this new office offering up to 2,000 hours of care per week.

Focusing on the Wirral, the Alcedo team, headed up by registered manager Joanne Cotgrave, will look to secure new clients in this area, providing an outstanding portfolio of home care services including personal care, nursing, nurse-led complex care, plus support and companionship to those wishing to remain independent in their own homes.  The company also provides live-in care and children’s complex care services.


Managing director of Alcedo Care, Andy Boardman, says: “Demand for home care continues to soar in Merseyside and so we have opened a dedicated branch in Birkenhead to support clients in Wirral.

“Our fourth office in Merseyside, we are immensely proud of what the team has achieved to date and are confident our range of home care services will continue to appeal to clients requiring assistance yet wishing to remain in the comfort of their own homes.”

Joanne Cotgrave adds: “Having worked in the care sector for 12 years, most recently as a care home manager, I jumped at the chance to be part of the Alcedo team.  I’m proud to be registered manager at the new Birkenhead branch and am firmly focussed on reaching new clients with our fantastic services, ultimately enriching their lives.”
