Sail - Sailing

Guardian Angel Carers was founded by former Olympic sailor, Christina Bassadone. On hanging up her sails in 2010, she started the domestic help company, Task Angels, in Chichester West Sussex. There were a number of family friends that turned to Christina looking for support for their elderly parents, recognising that Task Angels could do more than just cleaning, such as: shopping, meal preparation, odd-jobs about the house as well as provide companionship. Christina soon recognised that there was a real need for a compassionate, professional, local care company, and so Guardian Angel Carers was born in 2012. Starting from humble beginnings on a houseboat in Chichester Marina. Seven years later the Angel family has grown to a team of care experts and CareAngels covering West Sussex and beyond.

Having grown up and lived with both her Grandmothers at various stages and seen them through the last years of their lives, Christina has a good understanding of the later years journey and challenges for the older person and their families.

She is passionate about a proactive and preventative approach to care and support at home, helping individuals retain their quality of life for longer. For each individual the support they require is unique, and we will do all we can to support you to live life your way, together.

Care Culture

Guardian Angel Carers Ltd. - Electric Blue M

“Often it is a series of events and experiences that shape the people we become, and where our values and motivators stem. I was lucky enough to be very close to both my Grannies growing up. Both lived incredible lives having been through the war era. They made me feel loved. They were special, like Grandparents are. Yet, a time came when things started to change, as the challenges of ageing set in.

I have this vivid early memory, walking down the street holding my Mother’s hand, and seeing an elderly lady alone. She walked with a stick, was immaculately dressed, yet she had this expression on her face that I didn’t recognise. There was a huge pang in my heart, as I thought “who is going to hold her hand?”

With my Olympic background I’ve always had a sense of “how can we do things better?
It is some of these experiences, and others, that have formed the values that underpins the culture here at Guardian Angel Carers:



A warm-heartedness and concern for the wellbeing of others, our clients, their families, as well as our team.


We embrace efficiency through technology to deliver the highest quality care.


We keep our promises and do what we say we will when we say we will do it.


Real people who engage in a human way.


A value that runs through all that we do .


We continuously strive to do things better to support our clients and our people.

In addition to our rigorous recruitment process, we ask that every member of the Guardian Angel Family, live by

our 10 commandments:


We give everything we commit to 100 percent until we succeed. We are committed to the vision, mission, culture and success of Guardian Angel Carers, its current and future team, and its clients at all times.


We take responsibility for our actions and outcomes and own everything that takes place in our work and home life. We understand we are accountable for our behaviour and results.


We always speak the truth, and what we promise, we deliver. I only make agreements with myself and others that I am willing and intend to keep. I communicate any potential broken agreements at the first opportunity, and I clear up all broken agreements immediately.


Good isn’t enough. We always strive to deliver exceptional quality in all that we do. We look for ways of continuous improvement and innovation to deliver excellence to our clients and team.


We learn from our mistakes. We are committed to consistently learn, grow and develop our skills for the benefit of our clients, and our team.


We have a balanced approach to life, remembering that our family, spiritual, social, and physical aspects of life are just as important as intellectual and financial. We strive to complete our work and most important tasks first, so that we can have quality time to ourselves and with our families to renew.


We strive to continuously innovate and develop the care, systems and processes we use, to deliver the highest quality of care. We effectively communicate our learnings to help benefit the whole Guardian Angel Carers family.


We show compassion and empathy through listening and communicating effectively with others. We take time to consider the view point of an individual, taking into account their feelings, emotions and reasoning before responding.


We greet new and existing clients, their family or representative and our team in a friendly and approachable manner. The language we use both written and verbal is where possible jargon free, plain and friendly.


We take responsibility for our actions and outcomes and own everything that takes place in our work and home life. We understand we are accountable for our behaviour and results.
