Hope Valley home help, home care, dementia care services

  Meet the Team

We, the Management team at Walley Care Direct, have always prided ourselves on working as a strong team.

We have always found that great teamwork enables us to offer the quality of care we admire. When we set up the company we set about creating a team of carers that would offer the Hope Valley the very best home help and quality of care - something that continues to make us proud!

Careful team selection and great training allows us all to perform at the highest level and create a warm, friendly and professional approach to the way we look after our service users.
