Northwood Nursing is now Berkeley Home Care
Same team, different name
How we can help
Tailored exclusively to you, we provide live-in care across London and flexible visiting care within a ten-mile radius of Northwood. We can provide as much or as little personal and domestic support as you require.
Meet the Northwood team
We give priority to assembling the best team possible, recruiting special, dedicated people and training them to perform their job superbly and create a working environment where they can thrive and make a real difference to the lives of our clients.
All of our team are employed directly by Berkeley Home Care. We take great effort to match the right carer with each client. We look at the individual requirements of each person and match them to the carer who has the appropriate skills and the most suitable personality.
All our team are carefully vetted and subject to UK Enhanced DBS (Disclosure Barring Service) checks. This is a government database holding details of anyone with a criminal record. We also obtain at least two references before anyone starts working for Berkeley Home Care. When interviewing for new team members we of are of course looking for relevant experience and life skills. However, the deciding factor for us when recruiting is “Would we want this person supporting our loved one?”
Mina Gandhi, Business Manager
I joined Berkeley Home Care Northwood in January 2020 as a Business Manager.
I have worked in Health & Social Care for the last 15 years. My experience ranges from Sales and Business Development to Recruitment, Care coordination, Training and Operations. I have successfully completed my Level 5 in Health & Social Care; Level 7 in Strategic Management & Leadership and Train the Trainer course.
Working for Berkeley Home Care Northwood has been nothing but exciting. Every day is different and challenging, I love working with people and making sure our clients get the best care. It is great being part of this team.
In my spare time, I like to read, yoga and socialise. I have a passion for cooking and hosting.
Lyn Fulker, Compliance Administrator
I have worked for Northwood Nursing for 4 years and enjoy working here as my job role is very varied and rewarding.
My main role is compliance which includes organising carers training, recruitment and client’s reassessment and reviews. I also am involved in business development.
I have completed my NVQ level 3 in health and social care and I am looking forward to starting my level 5.
As well as being a mother with 3 adult children, my hobbies include attending the gym with my partner for weight training, and we do a lot of walking together. I am an animal lover with two cats but wish I had room for more. I have had a variety of pets over the years including a tarantula, chameleons, bearded dragon, Burmese python, hamsters, rabbits and fish.
