MEET OUR EAST OF ENGLAND TEAM
Karen has been working for Berkeley Home Health at the East of England Branch for over 2 years. She is responsible for ensuring her clients receive high quality visiting care at home from well-trained and supported carers. Karen started her career in business, having completed her AAT Accountancy and NVQ in Business, but left her role to provide care to her father who had cancer of the oesophagus for 6 years. Having helped support her father to the end of his life, it ignited a passion in Karen to care and support others. Karen then joined a local domiciliary care company as a carer, later being promoted to a field care supervisor and care co-ordinator, later becoming Care Manager of their Bury St Edmonds branch.
Emma has a detailed career in the Health and Social care sector spanning beyond 20 years. She has a plethora of experience and knowledge from working both directly and indirectly with service users and clients in a range of settings. Emma has undertaken a wealth of qualifications and educational courses over the years, enhancing her own knowledge and skills.
As a qualified Trainer, Emma can deliver current information combined with demonstrations of good practice and share from her own experiences giving our carers the best start in their career.

She is responsible for overseeing the smooth running of operational goals and objectives, ensuring that they are delivered in line with the group’s strategic plan. Her qualifications include a Master’s degree in Rehabilitation and Social Inclusion, and she has more than 15 years of experience in the care industry.
Carla’s previous experience includes working for The Good Care Group for nearly a decade, where she was responsible for the successful delivery of care to clients across multiple areas in the South of England. As the Registered Manager for a bespoke care service created in partnership with Riverstone, a Goldman Sachs-owned business, Carla was involved in setting up the business model, writing policies and procedures, and developing IT systems to support the business.
Carla’s passion for caring for others began at a young age, when she started doing voluntary work. She has since dedicated her career to leading and supporting operational teams to deliver outstanding care services to clients, as well as enabling people to live well at home for as long as they wish.
In her role, Carla supports a number of the company’s subsidiaries, including Berkeley Home Health Somerset and Wiltshire, Berkeley Home Health Surrey, Berkeley Home Health East of England, Genuine Care, Premier Homecare, and Trinity Homecare.

Our live-in carers at Berkeley Home Health are experts in the field. They receive specialist in-house induction training along with ongoing refresher training to keep their skills up-to-date with industry best practise. They are fully vetted, interviewed, have excellent references and are in receipt of an enhanced check with the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS). They will always arrive on time and greet you with a welcoming smile, remaining polite and helpful at all times.
