Founder and Director of Care
I have over 25 years’ experience working in care and I can genuinely say I loved every minute. My empathetic nature drives my desire to enable people to achieve fulfilling, independent lives whilst remaining in their own home.
I believe The Care Collection’s contemporary and responsive model of care will revolutionise the industry by moving away from reactive mainstream “care agency” stereotypes towards a highly developed, proactive approach to care delivery. I am incredibly proud to head up The Care Collection, a venture that benefits the whole community and makes a real difference to the lives of the people we support.
I have over 12 years’ experience in care with people of all ages and have progressed from Carer to Field Care Supervisor to Registered Manager.
My role at The Care Collection includes regularly monitoring the service, ensuring it runs safely and effectively for our Clients and complies with, and exceeds, industry legislation. I also ensure that the care team receive appropriate training and any extra support they may need to provide excellent care. My aim is to exceed our Clients’ expectations by developing a holistic, person centred approach to care delivery, focused on promoting independence for everyone.
Deputy Care Manager
I have 22 years’ experience in care, mostly working with vulnerable elderly people. During my career I have been the Registered Manager of several care services, completing my CQF Level 5 in Leadership and Management in August 2014.
I am responsible for compliance and monitoring our service to ensure we excel in all areas. I also provide day-to-day support to the Registered Manager, as well as nurturing our staff team. I am proud to be a part of such an innovative, forward thinking and positive company and look forward to continuing to build on the good name of The Care Collection.
My role at The Care Collection is to coordinate the Care team. My focus is on ensuring continuity of care, encouraging strong relationships to develop between Carer and Client, promoting independence and ultimately exceeding our Clients’ expectations.
I am pleased to be working for a company that puts the Clients’ needs at the heart of everything we do.
Field Care Supervisor
My role as Field Care Supervisor varies day to day. Whilst out in the community providing care, I build relationships with Carers and Clients to ensure we provide the best possible service. I also mentor Carers and assist with Client/Carer introductions before a service starts.
I am proud to work for a company that puts the needs of the clients first.
The Care Collection aims to exceed our Clients’ expectations by delivering a high quality, client focused, personalised approach to care delivery. To achieve this, we only recruit exceptional people who demonstrate an uncompromising commitment to quality.
We rigorously screen our Carers to ensure their suitability for the role. This includes telephone interviews, face-to-face interviews, reference checks and an Enhanced Criminal Record Check. Our Carers have a positive “can do” outlook and always wear a smile.
Highly trained Carers
Our Carers undertake a highly developed training programme that has been skilfully created to guarantee excellence. We have strong links with training providers and actively encourage our Carers to become experts in supporting more complex care needs.
Ongoing support of our Carers
We whole heartedly believe that for our Carers to provide a truly special service, we need to look after their well-being. Therefore, our Carers are well supported and rewarded so that they enjoy long, happy and successful careers at The Care Collection.
Bespoke Client – Carer relationships
Our Carers have a wide range of backgrounds, hobbies and interests, skills and experience as well as a wealth of local knowledge. We match our Carers to Clients with similar interests which helps close friendships form.
