About us

The Superior Healthcare Group was founded by Stewart Thorp, his father Charles and Sarah Richards in 2006 – five years after Stewart’s brother Alex had been involved in the road traffic accident.

Having sustained a traumatic brain injury, Alex spent two months at King’s College Hospital, London, before being transferred to Chailey Heritage where he spent a further year before being discharged to his family home with the aid of round-the-clock care.

In 2002, Sarah, who was managing the local branch of a national care provider at the time, became responsible for providing the care team that would support Stewart and his family to care for Alex at home.

By working with a team of care workers, therapists, case managers and lawyers over a period of five years, Stewart, Charles and Sarah identified the need for a care provider that would bridge the gap between small agencies and national providers – and then 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.
