ABOUT US
The founders, José and Liliana, developed in London initiatives with the English and Portuguese communities, mainly in the education and social care sector. During those times, both had experienced difficulty accessing the right quality of care for close relatives back home. This made them realize the need for non-medical home care and elder companionship services to help seniors live independently. Since then, they treasured the idea of building up a company that can provide one-to-one quality care so that people can continue to live as independently as possible in the comfort of their own homes. Concerned about the well-being and quality of life of all those of advanced years, they decided to embrace this project to provide care and support for adults and older people in their own homes. “We believe in good old fashioned service. That is why we visit our clients regularly to make sure that they are happy with the service. By doing this, we can ensure we are continually delivering the right service.” Liliana Ferreira, Director
The technical director, Edite, has over a decade of experience working with elderly communities in assisted living and care homes in Portugal and England. She also developed social projects in Africa with an NGO. Edite brings extensive experience to the role, with responsibility for recruitment, training and supervision. “All staff need to bring a winning combination of the right attitude and experience. We will only deliver the level of care that we would expect for our own relatives.”Edite Reis, Technical Director
