The Company was founded by Elizabeth (Liz) Gericke, Liz is our Director and Owner of the Company. Her mum was born & raised in Pocklington, or as she calls it "Pock". Which is why its fitting that At Home was founded right here in "Pocklington"
As Liz's parents aged and needed more support and more intensive care, she struggled to find care that met her parents needs within the area, so she decided that if she could not find the care that met her standards, it was time to create a company that would do just that..
The company has now expanded and covers a number of different areas across East Riding, Leeds and York..
At Home – Specialists in Care is operated by a passionate and dedicated management team who have a combined personal and professional experience of over 100 years. It is our aim to grow a service that is built on firm footings, has a reputation for excellence in service provision and is dedicated to staff who are fully supported, trained and remunerated.
We believe it is quality of care and carers that make a difference in service user’s eyes. Our management team work from the theory that the care provided needs to be of the standard, or above, of the care levels they themselves would expect to attain this goal we will only select staff that will be able to work together with us and the service users to provide this level of quality care.
We are fully accredited with the CQC and our registration number is RGP1 – 1888209951. We are also members of UKHome Care, Skills for Care, Alziemers Society and others to ensure that we are fully informed and have the latest news, research and training on hand as it is released.
In addition we will be working closely with the Local Authorities and other Professional bodies to build effective community links and affiliations so that we can work together and provide the optimum levels of care.
