Who are Tender Loving Carers?

independence, choice and dignity

Tender Loving Carers was founded in 1994 by Kim Grutzmacher. Her mission was to provide care for the community to the highest standards and to provide the level of care she would want for her mother or father, whilst maintaining the user of service’s independence, choice and dignity.
