A note from Diane Alexander:

“Lawrence and myself are trained nurses. We strive to ensure that the care we provide, whether in the home or elsewhere, is the same care you would receive from your own family. We are joined in the business by our sons Sven, Oliver and Adam, plus a management team that has been with the business for many years. When we established the business, it was very much about our own personal values. Today it is still about those values. I am thrilled that my family and our loyal and excellent management team are here to help make it happen. Thirty years have flown by since we first gained our nursing qualification and we could not have envisaged where we are today. However, we are rewarded every day and feel that our organisation is in good shape to provide our essential services to the wider community.”
