Vanguard Care has now been providing carers for well over 20 years and enjoys an enviable reputation in the care industry. The agency was first established in 1991 in Shropshire by Vanessa Woodward and her husband Captain Robert Woodward after his retirement from the Royal Navy. Prior to his retirement, Robert served on HMS Vanguard, hence the company name.
Vanguard Care, now located in Tewkesbury, Gloucestershire, is a small refreshing agency providing live-in homecare in the private sector mainly for the elderly. Whilst we cover the whole of the UK and Channel Islands, we carefully restrict the number of clients to ensure that our high standards of premium service are maintained and individually tailored to clients’ needs.
Unlike a number of similar agencies, Vanguard’s professionally-qualified Care Manager personally carries out every care assessment, designs the client’s care plan, and is responsible for its ongoing implementation. Thereafter, clients and carers are proactively monitored and managed.
Our business model enables us to be registered with the CQC, whereas some agencies choose not to be registered as such. Vanguard Care want to be registered and policed by the CQC. We want to have our quality measured and our systems inspected by them, and we want our clients and carers to be able to read our latest CQC Inspection Report by having a direct link to it through our website.
