How We Started
Both myself and Amanda both started in the Care Sector as Care Workers in 1996, providing, personal care, domestic support and shopping support to vulnerable adults living within the community we were brought up in. We both progressed into the managerial side of homecare and began to work with the different local authority departments. Gaining experience in recruiting, training, purchasing of new services and working with other health professionals.
Our vision was eventually to run our own care company. In December2003 Ace Homecare was established, firstly with just domestic and shopping support. Both myself and Amanda have always played an integral part of our business. We each have our own designated roles within it. When we first started we carried out all calls between ourselves, working mornings/evenings and every weekend in order to get ourselves in a position to hand work to new employees.
In March 2004 we employed our first member of staff and by the end of August we were employing a further 8 employees. To date we now have 60 care workers providing care within North East Lincolnshire and Lincolnshire. We also have 8 staff who manage all aspects of the business. Over the years we have spent caring for people, either personally or through our care workers, we can honestly say that we have felt honoured and privileged to have been allowed into their lives and offer support and care when they have been at their most vulnerable. We believe that our Care Workers are our most valuable asset and through their caring, compassion and dedication, our values are promoted at all times and recognised by the people we care for.
Whatever the circumstances of yourself or a loved-one, please be assured that we are here to guide you to the best solution for all concerned.
