ResCare (NASDAQ: RSCR), a leading provider of residential, training, therapeutic, educational and support services for people with barriers to employment and special needs, recently announced that it is re-branding its operations in the United Kingdom to better reflect expansion and diversification plans in the UK. In late 2007, ResCare purchased the workforce service operations of Biscom Resource Management Limited, a United Kingdom company with six locations in the UK and a private provider of government-funded job reintegration services that include job training and job placement assistance. The business will now operate as PeopleServe and will provide educational and vocational training, job placements and workforce services in the UK with a particular focus on responding to developments in public service markets, including welfare reform.
ResCare, with nearly 35 years of experience helping people reach their highest level of independence, is one of the largest providers of home care to the elderly and those with disabilities. It also offers residential and support services to people with intellectual and developmental disabilities and provides education, vocational training and job placement for people of all ages and skill levels. Based in Louisville, Kentucky, ResCare and its more than 44,000 dedicated employees serve daily more than 65,000 people in 39 states, Washington, D.C., Puerto Rico and in a growing number of international locations.
