Professional care makes lives better
Guernsey Carers Agency aims to provide a professional care service to cover the wide range of needs often facing families when crises hit or health is failing.
Set up by two professional people with a long history of wanting to help others, we aim to make a difference in people’s lives.
Nursing Director: Deborah Spencer is a Registered General Nurse and qualified VQ assessor with a heart to make people’s lives better. She has worked in the care industry for over three decades and has a wide range of professional experience including hospitals, community nursing, nursing and residential homes, working in a clinical and managerial capacity. Deborah’s qualifications include an honours degree in Professional Practice, and she has worked both in Guernsey, England and Australia.
Director: Dr Laurence Spencer is a retired professional engineer with a long-standing desire to improve people’s lives. He worked as Associate Professor at The University of Western Australia where he also started and ran a self-funding programme linking student projects with external organisations. Laurence has lived and worked in a variety of capacities in several countries. He has an honours degree and a PhD in mechanical engineering where his research aimed to overcome problems with alleviating poverty in developing countries. He also had several years’ experience as a full-time family carer, having supported his late wife of 39 years with “end of life” care.
