We’re a Family

Our culture is kindness. Kindness is free and acts of kindness can bring huge benefits to everyone. We all play a part in achieving our culture of kindness and it benefits us as a family, not just as individuals.

We empower our people to make decisions, to trust their instincts and to find solutions to challenges through creative thinking. We share our experiences, at all levels of our team, so everyone continues to learn and innovate.

People like Rob...
Rob Pretorius, 35, spent 20 years working as a chef before the coronavirus pandemic hit and cost him his job. When an advert for care work caught his eye, Rob wasn’t sure if he had what it took to make a difference in people’s lives. But after his first month in the job, he knew he’d found his true vocation.
I love engaging with the residents and making them happy. If I can get a smile from Nicky, who can’t communicate verbally, it makes my day. I love helping these guys to do small tasks that are so simple for me to do but mean the world to them. As a chef who has worked with people who speak different languages, I’ve had to find ways to establish basic communication with others, and that’s really helpful in this job.
