Alexandra Sacker
Managing Director

Alex not only has a drive for exceptional organisation, she is 100% dedicated to providing quality care and a first-class service. Her passion for caring for the elderly stems from her younger years where she witnessed her grandmothers’ slow deterioration with Alzheimer’s. It was this experience that caused her to make a promise to herself to try and better the care that is available to our older generation. Alex has 2 teenage daughters and lives in North London where she loves to cook and entertain friends. Travelling is a life-long passion as is reading a good book. She tries to keep fit with Pilates, Yoga and walking her 2 dogs and skis in the winter months in Switzerland where she grew up.

Registered Manager

Alistair has worked in the care industry for 15 years starting as a Senior Carer in a nursing home and rising to the position of Training Coordinator. He left the nursing home, moving to adolescent care where he was a Home Manager progressing to Senior Manager where he oversaw the expansion of the company from 2 homes to 8 with 50 carers and 5 Managers. While working in adolescent care Alistair juggled caring for his father whose, health was deteriorating and showing signs of early onset dementia. Alistair felt there was a distinct lack of care options for older people before coming across Home Instead. He was attracted to the Home Instead ethos of changing the way senior care is delivered in the UK and prompted Alistair to re-evaluate his direction in care.
