Quality Care and Support in Homes throughout Kent


Meritum began in 1994 trading as a family business called Ashford Homecare. In 2000 a branch in Maidstone was opened. It was decided that in order to meet the future demands and expectations as well as meeting the ever changing care environment a common name and a revised company image was needed. 

Ashford and Maidstone homecare became Meritum Independent Living.

In 2009 Brampton Homecare in Folkestone was purchased and became the third branch of Meritum Independent Living.

In October 2012 Meritum Independent Living was awarded a contract in Medway and have since obtained Gold award status
