Mandy Head, Uckfield Registered Manager for Candlelight Care.

Candlelight Care aims to provide friendly home care

Candlelight Care in Uckfield offers people a way to remain independent in their own homes.

It provides personal care, help with shopping, getting to appointments, cleaning and companionship.

It has 24 local staff, who support people living in Uckfield, Heathfield, Lewes, and the surrounding villages. Their office is on the first floor at 95-99 High Street, Uckfield.

Candlelight Care in Uckfield is part of a larger care group which has four other branches across the West Country.

Friendly and reliable

Uckfield Registered Manager Mandy Head says their aim is to provide friendly and reliable home care for people of all ages.

She looks for happy, easy-going people to work with clients and says: “All our care professionals are highly trained, and training is on-going to keep everyone up to date.

“The work is very rewarding as staff and clients are carefully matched. For example one care professional, who loves heavy metal music, gets on like a house on fire with one of our clients in his 80s who also enjoys the music.

“We can provide whatever care is needed, whether that is preparing meals or helping with a crossword puzzle each day, as another of our care professionals does.”
