The Anglian Care Promise

It is hard when deciding on a care company to look after our advocate or loved one and it is not one we take lightly.

Anglian Care was founded in 2008 as our Founder Des wanted to ensure that his grandmother was looked after by caring, professional and dedicated carers. After founding Anglian Care his mission was to give ‘peace of mind’.

With over 10 years of experience we have learnt what the word ‘care’ truly means. 

Our carers are special people, not everyone can become a carer. Ensuring our care values are at a heart of everything we do, our best practice is making you happy which makes us happy. 

We want to give you the knowledge that our loved one is safe, happy and well looked after, so you can ho back to popping in for a cup of tea and spending some quality time together, knowing the rest is taken care of. 

Thank You! Care Workers!

Appreciation for our Care Team

Anglian Care values our care team and the incredible care that is done each day! Through our Unsung Hero awards each month we nominate a member of our care team that has gone above and beyond. 

We also have our Carer of the Year Award. All of our team nominate a person they feel has provided quality, compassionate care throughout the year. 

Through our partnership with United in Kinds Castlepoint local representative Anna Wilson Anglian Care our care team have given ‘Send a Smile’ cards and a ‘Hug in a Shrug’ blanket. These initiatives have brought our care team closer to the community and those they care for.
