COMPANY HISTORY

Island Healthcare is a family business which has been providing care to residents of the Isle of Wight since 2003.

Before 2003 all of the company directors worked in the care sector for another organisation before Maggie and Nigel Bennett purchased Highfield House, our first care home, in Shanklin. We have been expanding ever since and now operate five homes on the island caring for 155 people with some additional Hub clients.

We have over 230 staff, including care, nursing, catering, domestic and administration who help us provide a wide range of care services.
