The Access Care team
We are a small, happy team. Combined we have over 90 years (!) of experience in the homecare and recruitment industries. Couple this with degrees, certificates, qualifications, big hearts, common sense and a drive to ensure our service surpasses expectation and we are the Access Care office team.
Tiggy (Judie's daughter) is proud to lead the Access Care Team, but when she's not in the office Tiggy can be found on stage living her am-dram dream, or travelling to sunnier climes with the family! She's pictured here with 'Chloe' the gorgeous Cavalier King Charles who is never far from her side and very good as an office therapy dog when the team need a cuddle!
Judie is a Director & Non-Executive Chair. She founded Access Care in 1994. Her vision remains to enable people to access live-in care of the highest standard with the trade mark Access Care finishing touches. Judie is known for her smile and caring nature.
