Care Coordinator 

Angela Hamlin Health Care Professionals is a private care agency, offering personalised, professional domiciliary health care. Services include the provision of nurses and/or carers, ranging from short daily visits to longer day duties, as well as live-in residential options. We believe that you cannot teach someone to care, it comes from within, so with this in mind our carers and nurses are hand-picked for their character and values and are expertly trained to support our clients and their families. We do this to ensure we can closely match their interests, hobbies and personality with our clients so they can become the friendly faces they grow to know and trust. We are unashamedly traditional in our approach and endeavour to adhere to the high standards not only expected by the CQC, but most importantly, by our clients.
