The Good Care Group’s 24-hour live-in care services enable people with care, support, nursing and companionship needs to stay living safely and happily in their own home as a real alternative to the need to move into a residential care or nursing home.
For many people, the option to stay in the comfort and familiarity of the home they love is highly preferable and often also better for both their physical and emotional health. The support we provide can be on an ongoing basis, or as respite care which enables a family carer to take a break whilst their loved one is cared for at home.
Our high quality services are rated Outstanding by the CQC (Care Quality Commission) and we specialise in providing live-in care to older clients with Dementia, Parkinson’s disease and a range of other age-related conditions. If you want to find out more about how live-in care works, you can find all the information you need here.
Our services are available across the whole of England, Scotland and the Isle of Man and we are already providing support to a large number of clients in London. People considering their own future care options are realising that remaining in their own home, with all the support they want and need is now a lifestyle choice they can attain.
Families considering 24-hour support and care for their older relatives living in London are also enjoying the peace of mind which live-in care provides, as well as the opportunity to continue to have a role in the care of their loved ones where they wish to do so.

Our London team members
Hannah Morgan – Regional Manager
Hannah graduated in European Studies and French in 2011 and went onto work in language translation. She then enrolled on a professional management health and social care qualification with the National Skills Academy for Social Care in 2012 when she joined The Good Care Groups Regional Care Team.
Anna Kerridge - Care Manager
Anna is a care manager covering the South London area and has been with the company for 18 months. Anna progressed from the role of Regional Support Assistant last year and is thoroughly enjoying her new position. Anna has a BA in Sociology at the University of Liverpool then came to London to do an MSc in Anthropology at the London School of Economics and Political Sciences.
Emelie Karlsson - Care Manager
Emelie has worked in the care industry since 1999, in Sweden, Australia and the UK. She worked her way up from Care Worker then Coordinator to Registered Manager for a large domiciliary care agency in London, working with clients with spinal injuries in Brisbane. Now a Care Manager for The Good Care Group, Emelie feels very strongly about providing person centred care and to treat all clients as an individual and to ensure all her care workers feel well supported and valued.
She thinks that supporting someone to live a good quality life at home, is the best job you can have. She loves working within live-in care because of all the lovely people she meets daily, and the freedom and time it gives her to really improve and change someone’s life.
Catherine Sadler - Care Manager
Catherine has worked in care for over ten years, she first began caring whilst at University while attaining a BA Hons Second Class degree in English and Philosophy at Southampton. After finishing her degree Catherine continued to care, supporting people in the community who lived alone. Catherine then began working in a residential home as Deputy Manage. Having experienced working in the care sector in a variety of different environments I genuinely believe that live in care is the best option for the vast majority of people.
Elaine Thompson - Care Manager
Elaine has worked in care for ten years, in a variety of settings and roles. She began her career by supporting people with learning difficulties, which she found very rewarding. Elaine then moved to a domiciliary care role, wanting something more challenging and within a personal setting. The domiciliary care role was not as fulfilling and she had hoped – she found it very frustrating to only be able to spend half an hour visiting each client. This led her to move into a live-in care role, where she could provide more person-centred support to clients, giving them more time and attention. Elaine joined The Good Care Group as a professional carer in 2012, and worked with stroke victims and clients with dementia. She went from strength to strength in this role, gaining extensive knowledge and experience, before progressing to Care Manager in 2013.
Raya Zineddin - Business Development Manager
Raya joined the Good Care Group in 2015 as the Business Development Manager for the London area. She has an excellent track record in building good client rapport and bringing creative ideas to help expand the Good Care Group services within London.

Previously worked as a product specialist for Central Nervous System (CNS) products at a multinational pharmaceutical company. She also worked as a business development manager at an international insurance company.
Jane Pritchard – Consultant Admiral Nurse
Jane has a degree in Psychology and is a registered mental health nurse. She has been working with people with dementia for nearly sixteen years, and is passionate about providing the best possible care for clients.
