Sarah Hamblin– Managing Director
I have lived and worked in Northamptonshire for almost 20 years and love being part of the local community and church in and around Wollaston.
I have always been passionate about any aspect relating to medical and social care, having initially gone to University to study Medicine. Also I was brought with an amazing sister who was born with severe cerebral palsy whom I helped to care for during our adolescence. After medical school I changed career to teaching maths and science which worked better for my own growing family. I have brought up five fantastic children who are all now doing well in their lives.
When I was in my early thirties I had a passion to start a business based upon serving and supporting those who require practical, emotional and social help to enable them to lead full lives. At that time I had a young family of my own and played it safe, staying with a teaching career. During this time frame I worked at a mental health provider for ten years, St Andrew’s Healthcare, which I loved; supporting adolescents with mental health and special needs.
During the pandemic the need for high quality care was highlighted for us as a family. My elder sister, who is severely disabled physically, lives independently with 24/7 care. We have had some difficult times with unreliable carers, with those who have been dishonest and with those who just have not received the training they need in order to do a great job caring for her in her own home. For that reason, and now that my children have grown and left home, I am in a position to follow my passion to care for those wanting additional support. I have chosen to work with the Visiting Angels family because Visiting Angels truly cares for their staff and puts them at the heart of everything they do. This leads to the retention of excellent carers who, in turn, provide exemplary, consistent continuity of care.
We look forward to hearing from you and, if we are the right fit for you, supporting you or your loved one.
