Owner and Managing Director
Mother of 4 girls and grandmother to 6.
I have dedicated my career to the care of the elderly in our community. I have a determination to make a difference I care deeply about the service my company provides and remain personally involved and connected to all my staff and service users, this allows me to remain informed and aware of all positives or potential negatives within our service provision, giving me the ability to address and if needed correct any issues with speed and positivity.
My career in Homecare spans 25 years, I hold my level 5 and RMA award and have vast knowledge and experience of the sector which enables me to the best leader of my service, I believe that it is a privilege to be invited into someone else’s home. I believe that caring for the elderly gives you in so many ways the benefit to the care worker I s as great service user, it is quite possibly one of the most rewarding and fulfilling roles that you can perform to know you truly make a difference to someone's life and that you are a welcome visitor to their sanctuary of home is humbling.
My aim is to develop a service that allows me the privilege to build a relationship with the service users of Help at Home that gives me the honour of being part of their care journey ensuring that as the Director of the service I can truly oversee and ensure that they are cared for in a way that embodies respect, compassion and giving back in all that we do.
I hope that our service’s for the elderly can brighten their day, whilst providing help and support to maintain their dignity and independence.
