Meet our New Client Team​

Friendly, caring and understanding

The New Client team is led by Emily Smith.

Our New Client team strives to provide person-centred care, making sure every consideration has been made to deliver safe and efficient live-in care and hourly care for you. The team is trained to listen, provide information about Christies Care and take steps to set up a live-in care package that is tailored exactly to your needs.

We always ask for your feedback on our carers, as having the right carers makes all the difference to your wellbeing and happiness. We work very hard to take into account your personal interests and preferences before matching you with a carer whose company you will enjoy and be reassured by. In fact, 74% of clients insist that the first carer we introduce them to is assigned to their regular rota of familiar and friendly carers.

Emily Smith

Head of New Client Team

I have worked for Christies Care since 2006. I enjoy the fact that in my role I’m always meeting and speaking with new people and no day is the same.

“As the New Client Team Leader, I am proud of the service that my team strives to offer our New Clients. I am lucky to work with such a passionate and driven team.”

In my spare time I enjoy spending time with family and friends, especially my two beautiful nieces. I attend yoga classes and volunteer my time to the local Brownie unit and Dance School.

Mandy Bowen

New Client Co-ordinator

I’ve been with Christies since early 2013. The best thing about my job is helping people live independently in their own home.

“When my mother was diagnosed with terminal cancer she made the choice that she wanted to remain in her home, however she was scared to be alone. I looked into Live-in-Care for her and this gave my mother peace of mind and allowed me to maintain my family life and be involved as a daughter not a carer.”

I have a young daughter so when I’m not working I’m with her, enjoying our time together.

New Client Co-ordinator

I started with Christies Care in 2014 and I absolutely love my job which is always so varied and no two days are the same.

“My colleagues are so caring, kind, knowledgeable and compassionate and I enjoy coming to work each day. It is a very satisfying job, allowing people to stay in their homes and remain as independent as possible.”

I am a family girl and all of my spare time involves running around after my 10 year old and 18 month old daughters.

Emma Payne

New Client Co-ordinator

I have been working for Christies Care since June 2010 and I really enjoy working as part of a team and speaking to clients and their relatives.

“Although I have not had any care experience myself, when talking to our carers I always do my best to understand what they are going through and always ensure I offer the best support I can to both our clients and carers.”

During my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my family and socialising with friends.
