Catherine Laughton and Julie Clarke, lifelong school friends, have turned their passion and resilience into a thriving business in the home care sector. Drawing from their extensive professional backgrounds, they bring a wealth of experience and expertise to Daisychain Homecare Services.

Catherine's impressive career spans over two decades in the care industry. From working in hospitals, mental health units, to providing care in people's own homes, she has firsthand experience assisting individuals with diverse physical and mental health needs. Additionally, Catherine spent five years as a Sheltered Housing Officer, ensuring the well-being of vulnerable and elderly individuals by addressing their personal needs and managing property and tenancy matters.

Julie's six-year tenure at the NHS, including two years in a bustling A&E department, equipped her with invaluable skills in supporting patients with acute health conditions. Her dedication to delivering timely care and support has been instrumental in making a positive impact on the lives of those she has served.

Beyond their professional accomplishments, Catherine and Julie encountered personal challenges that led them to recognize the crucial need for homecare services in the community. They were determined to uphold people's fundamental human rights while helping them achieve optimal health and well-being. Their vision was to provide exceptional person-centred care that honors each individual's identity. From friendly conversations to general housework assistance and facilitating appointments, a wide range of activities is offered to enrich clients' lives.

In August 2012, the two childhood friends transformed their shared vision into a reality by establishing Daisychain Homecare Service (Bakewell) Ltd. Today, their team of dedicated carers provides personalized care and social activities, enriching the lives of clients across the Derbyshire Dales. Some of our clients receive care from Daisychain's carers up to four times a day, demonstrating our commitment to fostering the well-being of those we serve.
