How we started
Careleaf started as two friends, Ollie and Nick, who loved working as live-in carers. We cared for many different clients over the years, lived in their homes, got to know them really well and helped them live life to the full. We had also spent many years learning and practicing mindfulness and meditation, which, with its grounding in compassion and ethics, inspired us to create a care agency that really cares.
Time for a change
During our time as carers we felt that many care agencies were unfriendly and uncaring towards both their clients and carers. They were inflexible and overpriced and this often made a difficult situation for clients, worse. We felt we could do a better job at helping people find the best care for their loved ones, at a price they can afford.
Care with kindness
So what makes us different? Well, the real difference is that we are still run and managed by our founders who have a strong grounding in meditation and wisdom traditions from the east. These traditions have compassion and caring for others at their core and it was this desire to really care for people that led us to be carers in the first place. Care is a life choice for us, and those core ethics have become woven into who we are over the past 15 years of practice.
Our mission when we began was to provide the best, experienced and most compassionate carers to our clients, to make their lives as enjoyable and full as ever. And that’s what we’ve been doing ever since.
