Our Care and Support Team: We ensure that we have only the highest quality care and support team. We have a rigorous recruitment and selection process, and we will only ever employ anyone that passes the ‘mum’ test – Would I trust the carer to look after my mum? And only if the answer is ‘yes’ will they be asked to join our close knit team.
Laura is an experienced care manager with over 20 years experience working in adult social care services. She has worked as carer in a variety of care settings, then was promoted to senior carer, deputy manager before going on to becoming the registered manager of a large international domiciliary care company.
Laura also holds a Bsc hons degree in Applied Psychology as well as NVQ Level 4 in Health and social care and leadership and management.
Laura is passionate about providing a high quality service to people living in their own homes giving people as much independence as possible. She believes that there should be a more holistic approach to care provision and that each client should be able to access a completely bespoke care package, whether its help getting up and washed in the mornings, a massage and pamper afternoon, being taken to the theatre or a simple meds reminder.
We want to provide the personal touch which can so often be lost with large companies and franchises which is why she decided to start Pinewoods Homecare Services.
