Created by Parents

Thirty-odd years ago, starting a care business did not figure in our family’s future.  Then our daughter, Laura, was born and we were told

“she’s mentally handicapped, she might live, or might not – we don’t really know and, by the way, good luck”

Over the years, fighting to get the best for Laura has given us an insight into the world of care.  Laura is the inspiration for our specialist residential provision, Home From Home Care, which we created with our son, Hugo, and she is testament to how anyone can positively affect the lives of others.
