Owner and Managing Director

Owner/Managing Director Alexandra Sacker

Alexandra came across Home Instead when reading about one of the London offices being the first in the area to receive a CQC outstanding. The Owners' account on how this was achieved really struck a cord with her and made her think about how care should be delivered.  Alexandra at the time already had gained insight into the Care industry as a Home Manager for young adolescents across North London and part of Enfield and she felt the time was right to  start something new. With her previous experience in the financial sector she had the right foundations to start a business  and with Alistair she knew they would form a great team having known him for many years, as a friend first, but later also as a colleague. 

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.

Owner and Registered Manager

Owner/Registered Manager Alistair Jones-Owen

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.

Alistair was born and raised in Enfield so knows the borough well and is eager to deliver an excellent service to his local community and the residents within Enfield. He loves to spend time with his family, likes to cook and is a dab hand at a bit of home DIY.
