Rebecca Seal - Operations & Training Director
Rebecca 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 – Rebecca 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.
Rebecca is convinced that connecting and relating to people is the difference between average care and high quality care and this is the message she strives to spread throughout the organisation. Prior to this, Rebecca has over a decade’s previous experience working in healthcare, homelessness and with younger women.
Butch has 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.
Butch’s view is simple 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 help building us a strong reputation in the care sector…

Besides her wealth of experience, where Sarah really excels is how she connects with her clients – creating strong bonds with elderly clients and clients with dementia and autism in particular. Although not one for compliments, we put this down to her overall good nature, sense of humour and the warmth that she brings to her work on a daily basis.
Within her role as Field Care Supervisor, Sarah meets and greets clients and our carers working out in the community – conducting assessments, gaining feedback and monitoring the work overall.
