Our Story

Domestic Care Group was established by Paul and Lesley Megarity in 1993 and since then the organisation has diversified and developed into one of the leading Health and Social Care organisations in Northern Ireland. 

We have a broad range of services, from provision of nursing and domiciliary care, provided under the name Optimum Care, practical support and meals services in people’s own homes delivered under the name Domestic Care, through to high quality nursing and residential care provided in comfortable, attractive, purpose built care homes by our sister company MD Healthcare.

High quality care is at the heart of what we do and through relentless pursuit of high standards, we aim to meet the needs of our clients and residents.  We take pride in the achievements of our staff and work to develop their skills through ongoing professional development and use of apprenticeships and recognised vocational training.

We continually seek new and innovative methods to help ensure that elderly, disabled and vulnerable people live their lives as fully as is possible.  We care because people matter.
