New Budleigh care business opening

A husband and wife team have realised their dream of working together with the opening of a new business in Brook Road Budleigh Salterton, which could create 50 new care jobs.

In launching the Exeter and East Devon office of Home Instead Senior Care last month Mark and Vanessa McGlade are returning to Vanessa’s family roots after living in the US for 14 years.

Home Instead offers non-medical care services for older people in the comfort of their own homes.

The couple first met whilst Mark was serving as a Naval Officer at Britannia Royal Naval College in Dartmouth.

After they were married he pursued a career in the Aerospace and Defence industry, living in America for 14 years.
