Company Description:My Care at Home was formed by Maggie Fisher and a friend whilst on maternity leave, their motivation and inspiration came from wanting to deliver quality care and companionship for older people and vulnerable adults in their own homes.
In Maggie’s early 20’s her grandmother came to live with her family, she had dementia and was also living with cancer. As a family they had to take care of all her physical and emotional needs, this was a very challenging time as a family and occasionally they required outside support.
Trusting someone to come into your home and look after a family member is a big step to take, which is why My Care at Home was formed. We want to make this transition easier for people, offering support and advice and providing a reliable high quality service to meet individual or family member’s needs.
Maggie started her career in the NHS and qualified as a Registered General Nurse (RGN) in 1990. She then joined the British Army in 1992 as a Ward Sister, and progressed to the rank of senior Captain. Maggie specialised in Neurology and also gained ENB 998 teaching certificate. She served in Bosnia and during this time worked with the United Nations High Commission for Refugees (UNHCR) and World Health Organisation (WHO) to help improve the health services in the local communities, this included setting up GP led clinics. Maggie also worked as Night Sister at Military hospitals, responsible for the hospital during night hours, bed management and staffing issues.
Maggie left the Army in 2001 and worked in the pharmaceutical industry as an Account Manager, responsible for business planning and liaising with commissioners in the NHS and offering support with service redesign. Maggie combines her medical and business acumen to support quality of care and business growth.
