Meet the Team

Experts and well trained caring team members always available to help our seniors in Algarve.

KELLY HARPER

CEO AND FOUNDING PARTNER
Originally from the UK, I am happily married to Jon, mum to Jayden, Kian and Darcie-Blue and step mum to Tom. 
I’ve worked in Healthcare since my Dad turned very ill in 2007 and my Nan was diagnosed with Dementia. 
I had the privilege of caring for them both in their final years which then lead me to develop myself in other areas of Health and Social Care, mainly Leadership, Training and Organisational Excellence. 
Along with my entrepreneurial spirit and passion for care, I also love to shop for shoes, eat great food and drink good wine! Guilty Pleasure: Crisps, Beetroot, Disney films and Aiden Turner (aka Ross Poldark).

JONATHAN HARPER

COO AND PARTNER
Born and raised in Birmingham, Central England I started my career at British Gas working my way up the ladder to become the Learning and Development Manager at National Express Coaches and then on to managing my own business. 
I went on to work with many NHS Trusts and Housing Associations delivering Conflict Resolution Training and Self Defence skills for those working with the most vulnerable people in society. 
Working alongside Kelly has allowed me to combine and transfer all of those skills to enhance our care team and help them develop into knowledgable and skilled people within the industry. Guilty pleasure: Watching Birmingham City beat Villa and the odd Gin and Tonic now and again.

ANDREA DOBSON

CARE MANAGER
Having lived most of my life surrounded by beautiful lush greenery in various parts of North Yorkshire, I bid a fond farewell to Harrogate and moved to the blue skies, warm sands and stunning sunshine coast of the Algarve.

After many years’ experience in the community sector caring for babies, children and young adults, taking sole responsibility for their day to day life, care and safety as well as household and financial management. I proceeded onto also owning and running a successful home care recruitment company in the UK, as a 50% business partner with a good friend for over a decade. 
This involved working alongside and supporting multiple agencies including social services to ensure the continued monitoring and safeguarding of some of the most vulnerable people in our society. This combination of direct community and office based skills and knowledge ensured a naturally easy transition into the senior care sector.

I believe that love, understanding and integrity are fundamental to life and happiness, that it should be everybody’s responsibility to stand up for truth and helping to meet the needs and protect those that need our help is one of the most rewarding things we could ever do.

Guilty pleasure: Having the beach all to myself…..and pretty much anything sweet and sugary….unless it contains coffee; in which case its completely ruined!
