Head of Visiting Care
Carla Gama is a dedicated and passionate care director who joined Berkeley Home Health in July 2022. 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. Her dedication and commitment to the care industry make her an invaluable member of the Trinity Homecare Group team.
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. At Berkeley Home Health, we only recruit those who we would feel confident caring for our own family – the very best.
