Promoting care freedom since 2016
With decades of experience in Health and Social Care, our team could see that in many cases, care provision was not adequately serving the needs of carers or those in need of care. We saw the need for a fresh approach that gave all parties greater choice. In 2016, Seakr was launched.
Our business model focuses on the individuals; what they want to achieve, their personalities and their preferences. Rather than managing a team of carers and clients, we gather as much information as we can on both parties and work to find a good match. We invite carer and care seeker to meet and agree on their own terms.
Carly found care seakr whilst searching for a care agency for her Grandmother and was so impressed, she joined the team! Focussed on our carer recruitment, she ensures all carers meet seakr's high quality and compliance standards. Carly likes long walks in the country and spending time with family.
Stefano joined us in 2020 with 3 years experience in a large central London care agency and supports both seakr carers and clients. To relax, he enjoys sipping on quality hot chocolate and discovering London's best restaurants.
