Meet Tracy Ellis, our Branch Manager
"Hi, I’m Tracy. As the Branch Manager for Bradford, I ensure that all of our customers across the region receive the warmest welcome and the highest standard of care, from compassionate and considerate carers.
I have over 25 years’ experience in managing care and I absolutely love what I do. Nothing gives me greater pleasure than being able to put a support plan in place to keep a customer in the home that they know and love, with the support around them so that they remain safe and have their well-being looked after whilst retaining their independence at home. "
What a great impact Helping Hands has had for my mother. She is really pleased with the helpers who are ensuring that she is ready for the day. Knowing she has someone there has been a godsend.
