Meet the team
The high standards delivered by our carers would not be possible without such a committed team managing the company behind the care. Every time you call in, you will be speaking to an actual member of the staff since we do not subcontract our calls to external call centres.

Theresa: Training Manager
I have worked in the Health and Social care sector for over 40 years. In that time I have worked in nursing, social services, the private sector and with children with disabilities. My proudest moment was in 2002, when I obtained a degree in Health & Social Policy & Sociology. I have always felt that those who give support should be recognised as professionals and to that end I have a Level 3 NVQ in Care and also an Assessor NVQ, among other qualifications. Currently I support the carers at Care at Home with their training which I thoroughly enjoy.
My hobbies involve lots of craft work including baking, knitting, embroidery etc.
Ruth: Care Assessor
I started working in social care in 1992 when I joined a voluntary organisation providing residential care for adults with learning disabilities. During this time I was promoted to Registered Homes Manager. I attained a City and Guilds qualification in Advanced Management in Care.
In 2003, after having my children, I went on to work as a part time Care Manager for Harrow Social Services in the Physical and Sensory Disability Team. My duties involved carrying out reviews and needs-led assessments in clients’ homes, day centres and residential settings, working closely with clients, their families and outside agencies. I began at Care at Home in 2004 and I later joined the office team as a Care Assessor.
Outside of work I enjoy walking my dog, spending time with friends and family, and watching my sons play for their local football teams.
Emily: Office Administrator & P.A to Registered Manager
I joined Care at Home as an apprentice undertaking an NVQ level 2 in Administration.
After completing my qualification, I was very pleased when Care at Home offered me permanent employment as their Office Administrator.
That role essentiality comprised all my administration duties and assisting with recruitment.
I have lately been promoted again to the position of P.A to our Registered Manager which I feel very proud of.
I enjoy learning and developing new skills, along with working as part of a team and I particularly enjoy talking to both clients and their families.
Jane: Care Co-ordinator
I joined Care at Home as a Care Co-ordinator in early 2016. My background is in design & print, so this is a new direction for me and I’m very much enjoying being a member of the team.
I live in Bishop’s Stortford and I have a daughter who lives nearby with her husband. Outside of work I like to read (especially Stephen King novels); going to the cinema/theatre; and cooking (although eating out is a favourite treat!) I also love to go walking with my partner, Graham and his energetic rescue dog – a Springer Spaniel called Max.
Annette: Recruitment Consultant & Care Advisor
I have worked in Health & Social Care services for 15 years. During this time, I have supported individuals who are living with dementia, including individuals who have a learning disability & dementia, this was with a local charity where supported for 7 years.
I have achieved NVQ level 3 in Health & Social Care, my proudest moment was when I achieved PTLLS (Preparing to teach in the lifelong learning sector). PTLLS enabled me to work as a company trainer, also in my career I have worked as a team leader, unit manager, and a recruitment manager. Whilst working with the charity I supported two individuals at an official opening of the dementia service, the presentation was to The Princess Royal (Princess Anne) and 150 guests, the presentation theme was to explain what it is like to live within the service.
I feel very privileged & honoured to support those affected by ageing and those who are living with dementia, and have taken my direction from trainers and experts such as Penny Gaynor – The Contented Dementia Trust, Burford, Oxfordshire, and Dr Dan Nightingale – world renowned Clinical Dementia Specialist.
In my spare time I like to cook, play golf, and grow my own vegetables.
Mark: Office Assistant
I am currently in my second year at college training to be a Mechanic. I attend college 4 days a week and on my day off I work with Care at Home as an office assistant, helping with any office duties required. I have been with Care at Home since April 2016 and really enjoy working with the team and learning new skills. My interests outside of work and college are going to the skate park, going out socialising and spending time with my girlfriend. I also have an interest in cars, especially sports cars.
Care at Home is a growing company and we will be recruiting for more staff in the near future. If you are interested in joining us, take a look at our job opportunities page.
