Co-Founder & COO
In 2017, Liz cofounded CareRooms to provide much needed ‘step up’ and and ‘step down’, care capacity for patients who are stuck in hospital, awaiting a package of care or adaptations to their homes. Their carefully selected and trained community Hosts, many of whom are retired health processionals, provide a beautiful room, a warm welcome and a safe CQC regulated place to rest and recover. Their Guests have amazing recoveries and become independent happy people again, instead of lonely isolated patients who are dependent on a care visit for company. Prior to her career in healthcare she was a retail and technology manager with John Lewis and a part time co-carer for her grandfather living with Parkinson’s. Her John Lewis training and career exposed her to many vulnerable people and a strong customer service ethic, which she has brought into their CareRooms experience. The challenge of setting up a new model of care as a sharing economy model has been an incredible and exciting and at times, highly stressful experience, but they now have the foundations for scale internationally.
