Nannies for Grannies started was in 2014 by Kay and her Business Partner, Shelley. Both were inspired in part by their own experiences of caring for older family members. They realized that it was difficult to find someone to cover for them when they were too far away to help their loved ones. It soon became apparent that this would also be the same issue other families were facing when looking for home care for their senior parents or family members.
Kay has a wide range of experiences looking after children with special educational needs and students with learning difficulties, so is well placed to apply the skills of empathy and understanding to the older generation. She is passionate about helping elderly people live independent and fulfilling lives despite the inevitable health and mobility challenges and the all too frequent isolation and loneliness many of them experience.
Our vision is to enable elderly people to live safely and healthily in the comfort of their own home. We have 5 core values. They explain what matters to us most in the pursuit of our vision.
Providing senior home care requires long-term care planning. But many family members become caregivers to elderly loved ones overnight without being ready for it. A loved one falls down or an illness triggers a change in their independence. After a certain period of time, family caregivers may realize that they need help and start searching for alternative help. One solution may include home care.
Our approach is simple:
I embarked on my journey with Nannies 4 Grannies over 4 years ago now and haven’t looked back. My vision was half a dozen members of staff supporting a handful of clients between us but as always, when you have a superb team and your reputation grows, then you grow accordingly. I love working with our great staff who come from all walks of life and who are able to share their life skills and add a personal touch with our fantastic clients.The Team
