New GoodOaks Homecare branch opens its doors in West Sussex 

GoodOaks Homecare opens a new branch in West Sussex, led by experienced nurses Marilou Apa and Maricel Trinidad, offering quality visiting and live-in care in Horsham, Crawley and surrounding areas.

West Sussex

Horsham and Crawley

This month we are welcoming new franchise partners Marilou Apa and Maricel Trinidad to the network. The pair are now fully CQC registered with a new branch now open in West Sussex. They will cover the Horsham and Crawley area including Broadbridge Heath, Faygate, Strood Green, Rusper and the surrounding areas. 

They will provide quality Visiting and Live-in Care throughout the local community. 

Marilou and Maricel have been friends for two decades and are both qualified, fully registered nurses with over 20+ years experience each. They have an in-depth knowledge of the sector and their combined expertise in care, stands them in good stead with their new venture. 

In 2017, after having children and wanting more flexibility around childcare and family life, the caring pair set up a recruitment business, providing temporary nursing and healthcare staff within private nursing placements as well as private and NHS hospitals. 


Earlier this year, they were introduced to an existing GoodOaks franchise partner via a mutual friend and their conversations began from there. They soon recognised that the recruitment side of their new business was already there, they saw the need in the community and felt they could make a huge contribution utilising their experience in healthcare. They also felt a real connection with the GoodOaks values and principles and fast forward a few months, Marilou and Maricel are welcoming new clients!  

Marilou commented “We are very excited for the opportunity to share our knowledge and passion and are committed to excellent practice in everything we do. We are looking forward to meeting members of the local community and providing quality care to allow them to remain living in the homes that they love.”
