Shir-Li graduated from Sheffield Hallam University as a Physiotherapist but soon realised that her passion was for the care sector and decided to pursue opportunities in the care sector.
Shir-Li first worked in the care sector as a Support Assistant for Home Care Preferred Barnet Winchmore Hill and soon progressed to the role of Team Leader. After some time as a Team Leader Shir-Li wanted to explore other roles in the care sector, she then became a Care Coordinator and shortly afterwards an in-house trainer. She wanted to share her knowledge and experience beyond the setting of a care agency and so left Home Care Preferred Barnet to pursue a career as a trainer for World of Work. During her time at World of Work, she taught the Health and Social Care Diploma Level 2, 3 and 5 and helped others to progress within their job role. She wanted to make sure that the individuals she taught were able to provide the high-quality person-centred care that she had learned to provide with Home Care Preferred Barnet Winchmore Hill.
Shir-Li has always had a strong desire to work in care, even from a young age. In her spare time Shir-Li enjoys researching new innovations in the care sector and catching up with friends and family.
“The feeling after supporting a client is the most amazing feeling. It makes me a happier person!”
Angie (Sow Fong NG) started her career as a banker in 1982 and obtained her degree in Business Studies with a specialisation in UK Banking.
After having worked in banking for more than 30 years, Angie decided to retire and follow her passion for business by opening a care agency with her daughter Shir-li.
Angie has always had a caring and compassionate streak. She had cared for her terminally ill mother as well has her grandfather. Angie herself has also suffered an aneurysm and, for a time, engaged a private nurse to look after her.This experience of both receiving and delivering care gives Angie a unique perspective as a provider.
Angie is a very family orientated individual. In her free time, she enjoys cooking, reading and completing Sudoku puzzles.
Qua (Boon Leong QUA) is Angie’s husband. He has worked in the banking and insurance industry for close to 20 years. Prior to this Qua worked in Singapore for 8 years in engineering and telecommunications.
“Care services are part and parcel of life; it does not always encompass the elderly but a variety of age groups.” – Qua
Qua was made aware of the importance of quality care when Angie sustained an aneurysm. Qua helped to find a carer and helped in her recovery.
In his spare time Qua enjoys reading, travelling, cooking and spending quality time with friends and family.
