Alcedo appoints Lynsey Collins to head Live-in Care

Fast growing Alcedo Care Group, with offices across Lancashire, has appointed Lynsey Collins to manage its Live-in Care division.

Providing round-the-clock care in the home environment, Alcedo Care Group offers a range of short and long term live-in care services from companionship and emotional support to assistance with personal care, dementia, medication and more complex care services.

In her new role, Lynsey will oversee the day-to-day activities of the 50-strong live-in care team ensuring that each and every one of Alcedo’s 150 live-in care clients receives safe and effective person-centred care, delivered with compassion and continuity by an experienced carer in the comfort of their own home.

Extremely passionate, Lynsey is excited to join Alcedo Care Group. She is looking forward to hand-selecting the very best carers to ensure clients receive only the highest standards of care and growing the office and client care team over the next 12 months.

She said: “I am very proud to have joined an amazing family business with a wonderful reputation based on the delivery of exceptional care.  Caring for clients in their own homes is a privilege; in a short amount of time we have already helped so many people and formed fantastic relationships where our carers have really become part of the family.  To be leading this team is a career highlight for me and I am looking forward to developing the service offering and geographical areas that we cover over the coming months.”

 

Post-Covid, demand for live-in services has continued to rise as people realise the many benefits of a complete one-to-one care service delivered in the comfort of the client’s home, rather than a residential care home, that maintains independence, routines and lifestyle for as long as possible and provides peace of mind for family and loved ones. 

Managing director of Alcedo Care Group, Andy Boardman, added: “We are delighted to welcome Lynsey to the Live-in Care team.  Her passion for care, personal values and commitment to developing exceptional client relationships resonated with us and we are confident she will excel in this role.”

Prior to joining Alcedo Care Group, Lynsey was the registered manager of a residential care home.  She has also spent a large part of her career in the funeral industry where she started as a funeral service operative before moving up to trainee funeral director, qualified funeral director and finally area manager where she was responsible for 21 funeral homes conducting around 1600 funerals every year.

Aged 41, she lives in Bolton with husband Andy and two children but is originally from Wigan. When not working she enjoys spending time with her family, going to the gym, walking and holidays.

Established in 2017, Alcedo Care offers Domiciliary Care Services, Live-in Care, Nurse-Led Complex Care Services, Supported Living and Children’s Services and has fast gained an enviable reputation as the home care provider of choice in the North West thanks to its superb 700-strong team of highly skilled and compassionate carers who make a tangible difference to the quality of life of the company’s home care clients.

Run by passionate husband and wife team, Andy and Jo Boardman, and with the support of their fantastic management team, the company is expanding at pace and aims to double in size over the next 12 months with the recruitment of more than 1,000 new carers.
