About us

History

Olympic sailor Christina Handasyde Dick (Bassadone), is the founder of Guardian Angel Carers. On hanging up her sails in 2010, she established the domestic help company, Task Angels, on a houseboat in Chichester Marina, West Sussex.

As the Task Angel family grew, a number of family friends turned to Christina looking for support for their elderly parents. For example, they needed assistance with medication, meal preparation and personal care. Christina recognised that there was a real need for a compassionate, professional, local home care company, so she founded Guardian Angel Carers in 2012. The vision was to provide companionship, tech and care, visiting, overnight and live-in care to the community of West Sussex and Hampshire.

With my Olympic background I’ve always had a sense of “how can we do things better?”

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.

2. Ownership

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. We communicate any potential broken agreements at the first opportunity, and clear up all broken agreements immediately.

6. Balance

We have a balanced approach to life. It’s vital to remember that 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. As a result we can have quality time to ourselves and with our families, in order to feel rejuvenated.

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

9. Friendly and Approachable

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.

10. Gratitude

We appreciate our clients and our team. This gratitude we often show by including both clients and the team in events and celebrations. We are thankful to be part of the lives of the people we support.
