Our Senior Leadership Team has a wealth of experience in the care industry and all of us have personal experience of organising or providing care for loved ones, friends or clients, so we truly know what outstanding good care looks like and are committed to delivering it for all of our clients.
We are proud that over 90% of our management and office support team are ‘home grown’ and have progressed to bigger roles in the organisation as a result of our industry leading learning and talent development programme.
Philip Maundrill and I set up Unique Senior Care more than ten years ago now, having previously worked together in the corporate world. Over the years the business has grown in ways we could never have predicted. We’re so proud of how we’ve developed and the standard of care that we continue to provide. Read More
For most of my life, I’ve been responsible for my sister’s care. She has learning difficulties, so it’s always been important to me to find the quality of care and support I feel she deserves and this is what motivates me now to ensure at Unique Senior Care, we are providing the standard of care to our clients that I expect to for my own family.
Nothing is more rewarding, than hearing about and seeing how we are enriching the lives of our clients and their families.
In my spare time, I enjoy travelling overseas, eating out and exploring the countryside.
I have personally experienced the difficulties people face when seeking quality care for a family member. My mother suffered from vascular dementia and always said that she wanted to stay at home. I therefore know first-hand how challenging finding at-home care can be. Read More
We know how important it is to provide support to ensure families are confident that their loved ones are safe and cared for. We are therefore very proud of the service we provide to our local communities.
I work closely with our team to ensure that we consistently deliver an excellent service to all of our clients. We treat our staff as if they are a member of our extended family and rely on them to do the same for our clients.
Director of Operations
I have been working with Unique Senior Care for over six years, joining the company as Care Manager, moving on in the role of Head of Extra Care and now Director of Operations. My focus is always on continuous improvement and how we can evolve and develop our services to provide even better outcomes for our clients. Read More
I have worked in the care sector for over 30 years, starting when I was still at school (aged 15), working in the kitchen at a nursing home. I went on to become a care assistant working in residential care, then progressing into lead and senior care roles.
I always knew that I wanted to develop my career in older person’s services and enrolled in college to undertake a Care Management course for two years, achieving a Welfare Officer Diploma.
When I am not at work I enjoy spending time with my family and looking after my six ‘fur babies’ (cats!) I love the outdoors and I enjoy growing herbs. I like reading fantasy and horror novels and watching movies of the same genres. I am also a fan of heavy metal music and love going to concerts and festivals.
Director of Business Development & Innovation
As Unique Senior Care’s Director of Business Development Innovation, my role is to continually develop the services we provide to our clients, their loved ones and our fantastic carers. Read More
We know that in an everchanging world there are opportunities to help our clients stay as active and enjoy life for as long as possible, together as a team we never stand still, but are always looking to be at the forefront of care and leading the way for an improving client experience.
My experience and passion for helping older people, especially when it comes to high quality care and support, started with my role as a live-in carer for an older couple living with dementia. For over six years I experienced first-hand both the challenges of ageing and the positive difference that can be made to individuals and their families, including the amazing end-of-life care provided by Unique’s Carers.
My previous role as Director of Services with Age UK in Coventry, focussing on designing and developing services and support to challenge loneliness, isolation, and to improve health and wellbeing, helped me develop a really clear insight into what is important for our clients and how we can go about reaching and exceeding their expectations of care here at Unique.
Outside of work I am kept busy by my family, enjoying walks with our dog, gardening, board games and especially enjoy getting out on my bike.
Learning and Development Manager
I joined Unique Senior Care as a Carer in 2011. At that time, I was looking for the next step in my career, having decided to leave nursing. I wasn’t planning to stay for long but immediately there were opportunities to grow and develop, taking on responsibilities for recruitment and training and learning new skills. Read More
I loved the values and saw this was a company that invested in developing their people. From there a whole new career in learning and development emerged. I discovered I found helping others develop just as rewarding as frontline care.
I now have several qualifications in this area including a Level 5 Diploma and am excited about how we can continue to equip our teams with the knowledge and skills needed to provide outstanding care. I have worked or studied in Health or Social Care for the past 25 years in a variety of sectors including mental health, children with disabilities, and with older people, both in residential and domiciliary settings.
In my free time I enjoy walking, watching films and getting involved in activities with my church network.
Head of Recruitment
I have worked at Unique Senior Care as the Head of Recruitment for over 3 years now, leading a team of dedicated Recruiters and HR administrators. Read More
Our aim is to hire the very best talent who share our values - from Registered Care Managers to passionate individuals whom are new to the industry.
My background before working at Unique Senior Care has been in Recruitment for the past 8 years in various different sectors, where I have gained knowledge of best practice recruitment and the most effective candidate resourcing techniques. Moving to the Health & Social Care sector meant staying within recruitment which I have always enjoyed, whilst at the same time helping towards making a small difference towards people lives.
Outside of the office I enjoy spending time with my family, you will normally find me outdoors rain or shine, keeping my toddler out of mischief. I also enjoy spending time with my friends, brunching, Live music, festivals, horse riding and the occasional glass of fizz!
My experience of taking care of my grandmother while she was fighting cancer is really important to me. I remember how, although she knew she was very vulnerable, she still wanted to maintain her independence and to be treated with dignity and respect. It’s these values that for makes Unique Senior Care stand out. Read More
My role is to manage all of the day to day finances including payroll, supplier payments, invoicing, bank reconciliation and preparation of the accounts.
During my spare time I enjoy reading books. Fiction is my favourite, but I also love biographies. When I’m not doing that, I like to educate myself on fashion trends, bake and travel abroad.
