Our People

We care about our people as much as we care for our clients. The ethos based on the teachings of St Francis of Assisi run deep through our organisation making it a positive place to work. There is a wide diversity of race, religion, gender and age in our team, but we are all valued equally. As a result, we work exceptionally well together and our clients benefit from key workers that really care about their physical and emotional needs.

J’s carers are lovely people and so are the ladies working at the office. Everybody is extremely helpful in providing my friend with all the assistance he needs. They do his shopping for him and keep him good company. I am really glad he is in such good hands.

J is an absolute diamond

My husbands carers do an impressive work looking after him and helping me as well. J is an absolute diamond, always on time and in a good mood. In fact he always manages to put all of us in a good mood too. We are very satisfied.

My carers are my friends

I am so happy with my carers especially M and D. They take such good care of me, bathing me and feeding me and doing all they can to help me. My carers are my friends, they show real interest in my well being. The field supervisor is always interested in my needs as well. Good team, well done.

Georgiana R is our Office Manager, the majordomo – the cornerstone of the organisation. An opera lover, she conjures the image of Diana Damrau playing the Queen of the Night in Mozart’s “The Magic Flute”. Trained in the law, she has oversight of just about everything and everyone. Focused on discipline and efficiency, she is the “go to ” person in the organisation. A well-grounded, sensible individual who also has a kind heart and caring disposition.

Fahad Kazi is our IT Manager. He dreams of a world where every health care worker can be freed from mundane tasks through automation so that they can spend more time with those they look after. A fitness enthusiast and fine cricketeer in his youth, Fahad brings tremendous zeal and energy to realise the company’s ambitious plans to leverage technology to improve quality and productivity. His chiselled features and stern demeanour belie a kind heart.

Alina M is our Nursing Agency Administrator. Like the character, Winston Wolfe in “Pulp Fiction”, she is our fixer – a no-nonsense performer who gets the job done with style and efficiency under pressure. Our clients and agency staff love her because she always finds solutions with a positive, “can do” attitude. Alina loves challenges and identifies perfectly with the spiritual dimension involved in the work we do.

Rebecca B is our Domiciliary Care Administrator. This Sorbonne-educated Fiorentini loves people and animals passionately just like our icon, St Francis of Assisi. An avid reader, she quotes Milan Kundera as her inspiration, “Not even one’s own pain weighs so heavy as the pain one feels with someone, for someone, a pain intensified by the imagination and prolonged by a hundred echoes.” This says everything about her.

Dana M is a key member of our incredible domiciliary care team. The 22-year old Guildfordian has come a long way since joining the company as a teenager some 3 years ago. Hard work, perseverance and a passion for her work has propelled her not only to receive several accolades for her work but also to obtain an NVQ Level 3 Diploma in Health & Social Care. This pretty lass is definitely slated for bigger things.

Marian C is a Registered Mental Health Nurse in our Nursing Agency. “The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others,” she says. Marian fervently practices what she preaches. Our clients cannot get enough of her professionalism and efficiency. We cannot ask for more from one who exemplifies everything about our care philosophy.

Charles AJ is our joie de vivre Pain Relief Therapist. He started to train as an Acupuncturist after working in the care industry. Many of his charges suffered from chronic and incurable pain. He experienced first hand the sad and devastating impact of opioids and surgery as the default treatments. He decided there had to be a better way and has never looked back. With missionary zeal, Charles promotes Acupuncture and other alternative treatments like Ayurveda, Compression Therapy and Photobiomodulation for pain relief and management.
