Our aim is to encourage people who provide vital care for family members or friends by enabling them to develop support that really works in their particular caring situation. Empowered in this way, they build greater enjoyment into their everyday life.


Annette's worked as an engineer, HR Manager and professional coach. During this time, she cared for elderly relatives whilst bringing up her children. She's looked after family members at a distance, and experienced the intensity of long periods of providing 24/7 live-in care, before being closely involved in supporting her mother in a nursing home when her care needs exceeded what could be provided at home.

Annette founded Juggling Care to help people who provide care for family members or friends who, because they’re disabled, ill or elderly, couldn’t manage otherwise. Her experience as a coach, working-woman and carer helps those who are working in paid employment whilst juggling care, as well as people who have full-time caring commitments. Her first-hand understanding of what empowers people to succeed in business and other areas of life, has meant she’s been able to apply this knowledge to caring situations and make similar benefits easily accessible to carers.

Following successful face-to-face workshops, Annette developed the online video course Juggling Care and Catching the Smiles which has all the benefits of being available whenever and wherever someone has access to the internet. Its short sessions and flexibility to go at your own pace have (as you will see from the Testimonials) enabled many carers to improve their quality of life whilst enjoying providing better care.
