About Kingsley Healthcare
Kingsley Healthcare was founded in 1999 by Daya Thayan, our CEO, and his wife Sumi. Starting with one care home in Lowestoft, Suffolk, Kingsley has grown rapidly to become a successful and innovative care provider, employing nearly 1,500 staff and caring for 1,000 residents in 30 homes across the country.
We have a genuine passion for care and pride ourselves on making a real difference to the lives of our residents. In the words of our CEO Daya Thayan, every one of our homes must be of a standard good enough for our own parents. We respect and care for our residents as individuals and are proud of our industry-leading WINGS programme developed to support people living with dementia.
All our homes have their own distinct character and a warm and friendly atmosphere.
Our kind, dedicated staff work hard to ensure a relaxed but secure environment and to respect and nurture our residents’ continued independence. We want our residents and their loved ones to feel welcome at all times, which is why we offer 24-hour visiting. Each home also creates its own newsletter, which enables family and friends to be updated and involved with the home.
