Meet the Team
I have a variety of skills and knowledge having worked in the care sector for over 24 years and in a number of settings including hospitals, care homes and within domiciliary care. Within my role as Care Manager, I have a true passion for working with individuals to lead a life they deserve whilst remaining in the comfort of their own home.
I have strong beliefs that people should treat others as they would expect to be treated themselves and demonstrate this by expecting a high standard of work and professionalism from my colleagues. Throughout my previous employment I have established and maintained good working relationships with social services which has already had an impact on the growth of the business. At the end of the working day, I like to go home knowing that I have helped make a difference.
Tracey Hawkins – Care Manager
Katie Joyce – Live In Care Manager
I joined the management team after working with Amily Homecare initially as a carer. Prior to this, I had been in a senior role within a care home. I have a true passion for working with more vulnerable clients including those with dementia and people at the end of their life - and take huge pride in knowing I have made a difference to someone’s day. I approach my work treating people how I would expect my parents to be cared for by showing dignity, respect and providing the quality of care they deserve. I have built strong relationships with all of our clients and am looking forward to growing the live in care service with the same care, compassion and commitment.
As the Live In Care Manager, I will be ensuring the highest quality of care is given to our more vulnerable clients who require 24/7 support whilst being able to remain in their own homes.
Rebecca Seal - Operations & Training Director
I worked for a number of years as a full-time Carer to two elderly clients – one with physical health & mobility issues and another with Alzheimer’s. Having witnessed the level of care provided by other service providers – I knew there was a demand for good workers who could both fulfil their duties and responsibilities and who were also sociable and were comfortable spending some time with their clients. It is from this seed that Amily Homecare was born.
I am convinced that connecting and relating to people is the difference between average care and high quality care and this is the message I strive to spread throughout the organisation. Prior to this, I have over a decade’s previous experience working in healthcare, homelessness and with younger women.
I have five years’ experience in the field of social care recruitment and ten years’ experience in the homelessness sector – having worked with a wide and diverse range of support needs. These have involved working with some highly challenging and complex issues – from severe mental health, drug and alcohol, autism, through to working with ex-offenders, refugees, those escaping domestic violence etc.
I have a simple view when it comes to running the business – we’ll look after the carers, and the carers will in turn look after the clients. It’s a methodology and an approach that’s been working well to date and been helping us build a strong reputation in the care sector.
Butch Seal - Managing Director
I have been working in the care sector for over 40 years, starting in nursing and progressing through to a care manager in a residential home. I then moved in to domiciliary care, where l became interested in supporting staff though training, which enabled me to progress further. As a trainer, I have undertaken several qualifications to enable me to become a Registered Health Care Trainer. I still undertake regular updates to keep my knowledge current.
Central to my role is to pass on best practices to enable the care staff to deliver the best possible care to our clients. This also fulfils regulatory requirements, as well as supporting the staff in gaining the relevant qualifications to assist them in their role.
Elaine Mustow - Training Officer
Jackie Murphy – Mental Health PA
I have over 15 years-experience of working with mental health, homelessness, domestic abuse & drug and alcohol dependency issues. In my time, I have gained a solid reputation with the social workers and social care teams I liaise with for taking on clients with more challenging and complex needs. This is due to my skills and approach in patiently working with the more vulnerable members of our communities to assist them develop their confidence and self-esteem to ultimately get them to a better place within themselves and their circumstances.
I like to think I am patient, relaxed and reassuring working with clients who require that little bit more emotional & psychological support.
Sasha Ambrovic – Office Administrator
I have experience of working with the elderly, mental health, alcohol dependency, vision impairment, autism etc. Before I became a care worker, I also worked as a childminder.
Currently I work as the Amily Homecare Office Administrator, liaising with the accounts office and ensuring that all the timesheets are collected and processed whilst also continuing to manage and maintain my own client work. I am known for my “gentle giant” personality and my supportive and trustworthy nature both inside and outside of the office.
I have worked in the care sector for over 18 years having gained the majority of my experience working in care homes and domiciliary care. Besides my experience, where I believe I excel is in how I connect with my clients, creating strong bonds with the elderly and those with dementia and autism in particular. Although I am not one for compliments, others have described me as good natured, warm and with a good sense of humour.
As Field Care Supervisor, I meet and greet clients and our carers in the community - conducting assessments, gaining feedback and ensuring our work is conducted to the high standards we expect of our carers.
