Meet The Team
Managing Director & Care Manager
Sharan understands the challenges of providing care to vulnerable individuals with complex needs and in populations of diverse ethnic cultures, having worked across all territories of Cardiff and Central and East London as a Midwife and Health Visitor.
Sharan decided to leave the NHS having given over 25 years of dedicated service to set up Caremark Cardiff & The Vale after she was left to care a family member when they encountered life threatening ill health and she herself discovered a real gap in the domiciliary care service provision. Due to this Sharan’s main focus is to develop the great reputation of Caremark Cardiff & The Vale of delivering the highest quality standard of care and support to those in need and who choose to remain living in their own home.
Sharan knows that she could not achieve success without her team of dedicated staff. Having first hand experience herself of working in the care sector, Sharan is committed to supporting each staff member in their professional development and valuing every ones contribution that makes Caremark Cardiff & The Vale standout from every other agency.
Sharan’s goal for her staff is to ensure they leave the training room with in depth knowledge and confidence to go out and deliver the highest possible standard of care to all their customers.
Deputy Care Manager
Since Simran joined Caremark Cardiff & The Vale Team she has fitted in like a missing piece of a jigsaw. Simran is a young energetic leader who shares the passion and commitment of the entire Caremark Cardiff and The Vale team to deliver the highest quality of care at all times.
Simran’s enthusiasm for her role as Deputy Care Manager is so plain to see, she is warm, friendly and caring, but her determination, compassion and professionalism is not normally found in somebody so young. Simran has an approachable personality and responds to challenges in a calm manner.
We are so proud that Simran is part of our Caremark family, her colleagues and customers all love her and we see a very bright future for her in the care industry.
