About us

Compassionate Care provides homecare and companionship for adults across Manchester, Cheshire and Derbyshire. It was founded in 2010 by Amanda Stoneham, a carer with a genuine passion for care and celebrating what makes every client unique.

Today, we’ve grown to a family of more than 150 carers, but we still retain the core values of helping people to live well at home for as long as possible.

We believe that everyone has the right to help build their own care and support package, and we aim to keep our clients and their families involved at every step of their care journey.

Our Mission


To raise the bar on Care Standards, enhance lives, change perceptions and exceed expectations.


What we do

Home care

Care is about more than just helping around the house, we can accompany you or your loved one on trips out, take you to appointments, prepare meals, provide personal care and act as a companion.

Respite care

Caring for a loved one can be intense, and if you or your regular carer need to take a break, we can provide short-term care from a few hours right up to live-in care for as long as you need us.

Dementia care

Our team is highly trained to support those with complex needs. We pride ourselves on treating clients with dignity and respect and are fully equipped to support those living with dementia.

Supported living

We help adults with learning disabilities or mental health needs to live independently and with confidence, encouraging them to build social networks and work towards personal goals. This can be round the clock in your own home or in one of our dedicated provisions.

Amanda's story

Compassionate Care was born out of personal experience and the desire to make a difference. I come across too many people who are just ‘getting what they are given’ and don’t realise they have a choice.

I have worked in residential homes, nursing homes and home care services since the age of 15. During that time, I have seen a lot of things done very well, but also seen a lot of things done badly!

At the age of 19, with the aid of a domiciliary agency, I cared for my own mother for two years, before she sadly passed away from cancer. When you’ve witnessed the vulnerability of a loved one, it really brings home the importance of good care. Now, when recruiting my team, I only interview and select the kind of people I would have confidence in looking after my own mum.

Having someone support you is a very personal thing. Whether you are 21 or 101, we aim to enable you to live as independently as possible, for as long as possible. We believe in people living, not just existing. That’s why we tailor everything to you or your loved one.

Whether this means teaching you or your loved one life skills, building confidence, providing personal care or providing practical support, such as doing your ironing, this will always be done with the utmost dignity and respect.

As a naturally compassionate person, I firmly believe everyone has the right to be looked after with compassion, regardless of sex, race, religion, sexual orientation or disability.

Everyone has a choice and the basic right to be a participant in their support package, not simply a recipient of care. That’s why my company will never lose that personal touch. I always encourage my team to get to know our clients and become their friend and their confidant. Trust builds naturally from there.

Care with us isn’t ‘one size fits all’. We respect people as individuals and do not believe in labels. At Compassionate Care, my team of fantastic carers are raising the bar and setting the standard for what exceptional care should really look like.
