Our office is currently operating 9am - 1pm to reduce the risk of COVID-19 transmission to our staff.
This home was a huge success, receiving a 3 star CQC rating several times and developing a fantastic reputation for quality care. Sue and Gary have brought their wealth of experience to their home care company.
This started in 2009 as part of a franchise. Although it was a great success, they felt that being independent would allow them to fully utilise their skills and experience. Sue spends her time in the office, managing the company effectively and also out in the field with the carers as she loves providing care.
