Owners and business directors Ian and Nicola Lintott
Our story and getting started in Home Care
We met as Area Sales Managers working together in the same pharmaceutical company 20 years ago. Having been happily married for the last 13 years, we have a 10 year old son called Thomas. We share the same passion for doing what is best and right for our patients/clients, and our teams, and importantly we also share the same sense of humour.
The small village of Yelling became our home seven years ago, and we have certainly settled, putting down many roots through a network of friendships, as well as membership of different clubs and societies throughout Cambridgeshire. It is an absolute pleasure to serve both our local and wider communities.
Nicola – People Director
My first job after leaving school was as a qualified nurse, before working in the pharmaceutical industry for twenty four years. Presently, I sit on the Visiting Angels Company Board as a Non-Executive director, and provide Ian and Sam with guidance and support from a healthcare perspective.
Experience of working in a highly regulated environment together with a focus on quality improvements, as a result of my work with patients and their families, means I can make contributions that will be invaluable to our organisation.
Ian – Managing Director
I recently left my Marketing and Sales career in pharmaceuticals spanning 25 wonderful years, to start Visiting Angels Cambridgeshire, to fulfil a lifelong ambition for running my own company. But why did I choose the care sector with all of its challenges of recruiting and retaining good Caregivers?
Over the past 2 years we have witnessed the deterioration in my dear parents-in-laws’ health and have seen first-hand how their home care support has been delivered. Receiving 2×30 minute and 2×15 minute calls per day is neither sufficient for them, nor their caregivers.
There just isn’t enough time in any of these calls for my parents-in-law to feel like they are being treated with dignity and respect, nor for the caregivers themselves to be set up for success and achieve a level of job satisfaction.
The care plan and the system which developed it is fundamentally flawed. My purpose is to provide a new care option for Cambridgeshire, and it is my pleasure to serve the community in which I live.
