Hertfordshire volunteer sets up local live-in care service


A passion to provide a better quality of day-to-day care for elderly people has inspired a local woman to found a local live-in care service to accommodate the community.

The Hertfordshire branch of Promedica24 was set up by Samantha Glicksman, who following her grandmother’s diagnosis with Alzheimer’s struggled to find a suitable care service to support her growing needs.

Samantha commented: “When my grandmother was first diagnosed, she experienced many poor care options and I felt that there was something missing in the way that care was delivered within the community.

“When I came across Promedica24, I knew that live-in care was the solution. People should have the opportunity to receive care within the comfort of their own home by someone they trust, which is why our compassionate carers are matched to each individual, allowing for a trusting and warm relationship to flourish.”

Samantha continued: “I am dedicated to providing an excellent service which is focused on each client's individual needs and I’m determined that when the people of Hertfordshire hear the word Promedica24, the words ‘trusted and reliable’ will spring to mind.”

Recent analysis by Age UK shows that there are now 1.2 million people aged 65+ that don’t receive the help they need with essential daily living activities. Live-in care has become more popular over the past few years as people look for cost effective alternatives to traditional residential care.

Samantha’s contribution to the community also extends to her volunteer work with Age UK and to individuals in need.
