“I have been working with Universal Care Agency for over a year now and love being part of the team. I have worked for a few different agencies in my career and I can honestly say that UCA is the place I want to stay. I love that we are included in decision making and are encouraged, always, to look for new ways to improve the quality of care we deliver. I would let UCA care for my mum or dad and that, I think, says it all.” – Sally Burgess, Universal Care Worker
