reputations in the UK. I am delighted to continue the great work of Jonathan Bruce and his
family, who founded and built the company.

improve what we do, making a difference to the lives of the people we care for. The care
sector can be challenging and to deliver a great service to clients, we need to value and
support our staff in the best way we can. Our aim is to make Prestige Nursing + Care and
Elite a supportive and rewarding place to work, offering professional development to all.”

Jonathan Bruce CEO, Sodexo UK Homecare, added: “Since the acquisition of The Good
