About Us

About Kingsley Healthcare

Kingsley Healthcare was founded in 1999 by Daya Thayan, our CEO, and his wife Sumi. Starting with one care home in Lowestoft, Suffolk, Kingsley has grown rapidly to become a successful and innovative care provider, employing nearly 2,000 staff and caring for 1,200 residents in 32 homes across the country. An ambitious new-builds and acquisitions programme is likely to see the group double in size over the next five years. We are always keen to learn about new home acquisition and land purchase opportunities.
