“Hello. My name is Amanda Speir and I am the proud owner of Compassionate Care; a company that was born out of personal experience, coupled with the desire to make a difference.
I started out in the Care sector 13 years ago and have worked in residential homes, nursing homes and domiciliary care. In this time I have seen a lot of things done very well but also a lot of things done badly!
I cared for my own mother for two years, with the aid of a domiciliary agency, before she sadly passed away from cancer. When you have witnessed the vulnerability of a loved one, it really brings home the importance of good care.
I am a naturally compassionate person and firmly believe everyone has the right to be looked after with dignity, respect and love, regardless of sex, race, religion or disability. I encourage my team to get to know our clients, become their friend and find that trust builds naturally from there
Throughout the running of the business, I continually ask myself: "How would I want my mother to be treated in this situation?"
Compassionate Care does exactly what it says on the box! Through care, we enhance people’s lives.”
Amanda Speir, Director of Compassionate Care Ltd.
