Couple inspired by experience caring for grandparents moving social care company to Marshall’s Yard

28 March 2024

A couple who know the importance of providing high-level care after helping to look after their elderly grandparents are moving their social care company to Marshall’s Yard in Gainsborough.

Nompu Mahlangu and husband Manake were inspired to name their company after their grandfathers Kezi and Clay, who lived to 89 and 103 respectively.

The experience of providing high-level care for their grandfathers in old age inspired them to launch Kezi & Clay Healthcare, which provides a range of top quality housing and other services for people with complex needs.

The company launched in 2021 basing themselves in Retford – but has now relocated to one of the first floor, high specification office units at Britannia House.

Nompu, Managing Director of Kezi & Clay Healthcare, who has over 15 years’ worth of experience in health and social care regulation and high-level project management within the NHS, said: “We have seen first-hand how important it is that loved ones and people with complex needs are cared for to the highest standard, and we wanted to bring that high level of care into the community.

“A lot of our staff and the services we provided are based in and around Gainsborough so it made sense for us to move here.

“The shopping centre will be a brilliant base for us and is right in the heart of the town.”

She added: “Our mission is to help our residents to live more independently and feel empowered to make their own decisions, whilst also feeling like part of our family.

“We put our residents at the heart of everything we do in order to help people to live vibrant lives.

“If you would like to make a referral for yourself or someone you know, please contact us, we are here to help.” 

Jodie Pacey, Centre Manager at Marshall’s Yard, said: “Kezi & Clay Healthcare really are experts in their field of work and we are thrilled to welcome them to Marshall’s Yard so that they can continue providing vital services to the community.”

The organisation offers a wide range of high-quality social care services for children, young people aged 16 to 18 and adults, all aimed at helping to change lives for the better and develop communities.

Services the team can offer includes residential care for children and young people, supported living, semi-independent living, home care services, and community support services.

Kezi & Clay’s children’s homes also provide valuable experiences for young people thanks to the staff’s expertise, therapeutic support, and a caring approach.

They also offer help for care leavers, including semi-independent living, care leaver trainer flats, cognitive behavioural therapy, and financial advice and assistance, plus other support aimed at developing self-esteem and emotional wellbeing.

Kezi & Clay’s supported living services are designed to provide personalised care and support in areas such as motivation, self-care and living skills, managing money and personal administration, social networks and relationships, physical health, emotional and mental health, meaningful use of time, managing tenancy and accommodation, and offending.

In addition, the team can offer home care services including domiciliary care and live-in care, plus community support services such as day care centres, shopping trips, social events, and medical appointments.

They currently have a dedicated team of 11 staff and are looking to expand the workforce in the near future.
