ND Care & Support has appointed a regional manager as it prepares to grow its private care division.
Amy-Jayne Carr has joined the domiciliary care operator, which provides services to children, young adults and older people in Wales, either through local authorities and health boards, or directly with private clients.
Carr will be supporting the expansion of services in South and South West Wales and help increase the level of support it can provide to individuals and families who are looking for personal, respite and palliative care services.
Its care packages include support for those requiring assistance with medication, personal affairs, meal preparation, hospital appointments, trips and community activities, holidays, and pet care.
Carr started her career as a carer and moved to roles of branch manager and area care manager before taking her position with ND Care & Support.
‘I’m excited to have joined the team at such a crucial time, and to see how we can work together to benefit even more families in Wales requiring care and other support services within their own homes,’ she said.
Rebecca Ford, director of ND Care & Support, said: ‘The great thing about Amy-Jayne is she has been there for people herself as a carer and truly knows what the needs of both the people we support, and our care workers are who work so hard.
‘We’re really looking forward to moving forward with Amy’s impressive experience. She joins us at a crucial time as we continue to grow our services to individuals through the local authorities and health boards throughout the country, and we’re seeing a huge increase in demand for our private care services.’
