Af­ter 15 years of health­care sec­tor ex­pe­ri­ence I saw huge po­ten­tial in Care Hori­zons (an un­der­per­form­ing Domi­cil­iary Care Com­pany), so we bought it. We are pas­sion­ate about look­ing af­ter dis­abled and el­derly peo­ple, and be­lieve that with the right sup­port nearly ev­ery­thing is pos­si­ble and the sky’s the limit!

Who or what in­spires you?

Strong minded women who be­come suc­cess­ful. Women who are not afraid to work hard and are not afraid of any chal­lenges re­quired to suc­ceed.

What is the best ad­vice you’ve been given?

Smart peo­ple learn from their mis­takes, but the re­ally sharp ones learn from the mis­takes of oth­ers. My psy­chol­ogy pro­fes­sor added: Be­lieve your “gut in­stinct” and don’t be afraid of suc­cess­ful peo­ple as they are only hu­man too (imag­ine them naked – not the great­est idea at times!)

What does the fu­ture have in store?

We are very ex­cited to start new sys­tems for our staff and clients, to im­prove their work/ sup­port ex­pe­ri­ence and are work­ing hard to ex­pand into other ar­eas of the coun­try.
