Laura is motivated by always striving 'to make a difference' and is committed to delivering the highest possible standards of care for all our customers whilst providing a rewarding, fulfilling and enjoyable working environment for all our staff.

 

I decided to make the move into homecare provision as I’m passionate about keeping people young and old, with varying degrees of ability, at home in their own environment amongst family and friends for as long as is possible. I have met amazing people; Carers and Clients and I have learned so much and hopefully, through my work, I have been able to make a positive impact on their lives.
