My career

I’m proud to say that I am a Nightingale Nurse – not that I’m old enough to have trained with her – but trained at her hospital, St Thomas’ hospital. After a few years in South America I returned to become a Health Visitor – unusually - for older people as well as babies. During that time, I broadcast on 2 local radio stations on how to care for baby!!

I fell into a management job – managing Health Visitors and District Nurses in various locations around Surrey and North Hampshire and then went into the planning, (i.e. commissioning) side of services. Now, I am very happy running our small, specialist live-in care business. I have a great team behind me who are as passionate about getting it right as I am.

I love meeting new clients and their families and really enjoy helping people to find their way through the maze of health and social care provisions that are out there.

  • "Arbour provided live-in carers for my wife for six years from 2017-2023 including the pandemic. My main impression is of a very professional organisation in which owners and staff worked all the time to provide the support the client needed at as high a standard as possible. They gave equal attention to statutory requirements, care plans and staff training and never cut any corners."


  • "The support that we have had from Arbour Care has been, quite literally, lifesaving. They found an amazing carer to look after my elderly and disabled husband, who is very experienced, kind and thoughtful. She has made an enormous positive difference to the quality of our lives and I will always be grateful to her and cannot thank her enough."
