Meet the Team

Heidi

Managing Director

We couldn’t start our ‘meet the team’ series without starting with where our company all began. And that’s down to this lady right here.

Heidi is our registered manager and daily inspiration to drive Good Companions forward. Heidi has over 20 years experience in the care industry specialising in Dementia, Alzheimers and Parkinson care.

After experiencing first hand the challenge of caring for a loved one at home, she created Good Companions as she felt so passionate about supporting others who may be struggling out there.

From starting out solo, Heidi now has a team of regular and bank staff working alongside her to provide care and companionship services to the good people of Spalding.

Heidi says…
“As a company our belief is that to care and support others is a vocation and is born from truly feeling empathy, compassion and kindness to others. We care not only our clients but also their families/loved ones too. Here at Good Companions, we offer a holistic support service from our heart to yours.”

Thank you Heidi for all that you do!

Amber was inspired to enter the care industry as she comes from a family of nurses. Amber says “I am passionate about care and making a change to the lives of the people that really need our help. Supporting people and their families is an absolute pleasure and I couldn’t imagine any other role which would make a bigger impact in someone’s life”

Julie Ann

HR Manager

With over 10 years Admin & HR experience within the NHS working with the Community Macmillan Teams, District Nurses and Young Peoples services. I worked my way up from Admin Assistant to Admin Team Lead.

I am passionate about ensuring that the back office runs smoothly giving the carers as much time as possible with the service users, by supporting the care and management teams.

In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my family and animals, going to the Theatre and baking.

Jenny

Introducing our Deputy Manager Jenny.

Jenny has 16 years of care experience and has been with Good Companions Spalding Ltd for just over a year!

Jenny joined as a personal assistant and has built strong relationships with her clients over that time. Jenny has a keen eye for detail and made the perfect addition to the management team. In between care calls Jenny is the one who produces our rota looking at staff skills and clients needs, blending this together to produce a working rota for our team.

When she’s not scrutinising the rota, she is delivering fabulous care to clients because…

“I love making a difference in people’s lives. It’s so rewarding to support them with doing the things they enjoy like baking and shopping. Seeing my clients smile makes me feel very happy”.

Thank you Jenny for all that you do.
