Meet The TLC Team

Meet The TLC Team

The Leading Care Company and the TLC team who organise everything from our head office, plus all of our carers who are helping our clients and supporting their families every day.

Abi Canvin

Registered Manager

Abi used to work in customer service, but after seeing the compassion and care from staff looking after her mum who has early onset dementia, she decided to become a care worker.

After starting as a care assistant for a care company, she excelled and became the training manager, before.
becoming a registered manager responsible for the operational day-today management of the service.

Abi said: “I wanted to make a difference, and hopefully I have done that with the support of such a great,
compassionate, caring, and dedicated team. I have been extremely fortunate within the industry and would advise anyone who wants a change or wants to make even the smallest difference to someone’s life; this is the industry to be in. It’s by far the most rewarding job I have ever had.”

Working for TLC has been life changing, I could not have chosen a better more supportive company to work for.

Kerri Russell

Assistant Manager

I have worked in care for 13 years, starting as a care worker.
I chose to work in care when I saw my grandfather become unwell and later my Grandma. My Grandma had care workers attending to her daily and this inspired me to change my career. I progressed through different companies as time went on learning different skills and roles, also completing my NVQ level 5 in business management.

I chose to apply for a supervisor role at TLC to be in the community again amongst the customers. Very quickly I was promoted to Assistant manager, which still allows me to be in the heart of the community with our customers.

In my spare time I enjoy reading but most importantly time spent with my children and grandchildren. My family are especially important to me and socialising with them is always a large affair as our family is exceptionally large and extended to close friendships.

Jade Canvin

Quality and Compliance Manager

I have been in care for over 8 years now, I choose to work in care as it was very flexible around my family, I was also massively influenced by my mum who also worked in care and would come home smiling after her shifts, she really seemed to enjoy her role as a care worker. 8 years later and I have carved out a career for myself within the industry, starting as a care worker, moving on to a more senior role, becoming a coordinator and finally the quality and compliance manager, I have enjoyed every aspect of my various roles, it has enabled me to have an understanding of every angle of the care industry.

I choose TLC as I knew from my very first interview that this was the right place for me to continue my career, everyone was welcoming and friendly. I believe I can add to this great team and really make a difference too the lives of our clients that we support.

Taryn Staegemann

Office Supervisor

I have worked in care for 9 years, I enjoy working in care as it is a very rewarding job, I get to meet new people and help them when they need it the most and it’s flexible around my family.

Why I chose to work at TLC, first impressions are everything, everyone seemed happy and welcoming along with being well trained, friendly and they have very reliable staff, something I believe is beneficial to any care company.

In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my family, travelling and going to gym.

Nazneen Hussain

Training and Recuitment Manager

I believe that the Manager and the Company’s leadership and vision is something that is important to me. I have worked with Kieran from the very beginning, over 6 years now and have experienced many roles within the company.

There is an opportunity for you to learn and grown personally and professionally and having just completed my Diploma in Level 5 Management and Leadership for Health and Social care and on-going support and encouragement for further trainings. We have a brilliant team in the office and in the community and I would not change a thing!

Claire McLaughlin

Care Co-ordinator

My main responsibilities is to ensure that all clients care calls are allocated in terms of their needs and wishes. While ensuring that carers have the opportunity to build relationships with the clients. 

As well as this I deal with accepting new or revised care packages both private and through social services

I have worked in care for about 23 years. I started as a support worker while training to become a qualified learning disabilities nurse. Once qualifying I took up a nursing post working with children who had complex medical needs until I left in 2019 to join The leading care company, initially as a community supervisor and the then care coordinator. 

I made the decision to leave the NHS and join The leading care Company to give myself a new challenge and have been made to feel welcomed from the start. They have supported me to transfer the skills I already had from my time nursing and to develop ways to use them in the community setting.
