Having joined Old Friends Care in 2004 (as a Carer) I am very proud to Represent Old Friends Care in the Community.

I am the First person that you will meet (at Your Home) if you contact us  to discuss the services that we offer. Experience has taught me how important it is to take the time to listen to people. It is vitally important that we discus everything in detail - with the emphasis being to respect "YOUR" choices & to get everything correct from outset

"I Look Forward to Meeting You"

Having joined Old Friends Care straight from University, I am very proud of my role which is Managing the “Out of Hours & Weekend Service”.

I am also responsible for supporting the most vulnerable people who use our services & those people with very complex care needs.
