Meet The Owners

Mike And Cathy Scott

Mike and Cathy Scott own and manage Seniors Helping Seniors Solihull and Warwick. They run the Business from Balsall Common, where they live.

Mike grew up by the coast in Lancashire and Cathy by the coast in Lincolnshire.  They met in Nottingham while at university and have lived in the Midlands for 23 years. Their children are 12 and 9 years of age.

Mike is an avid sports fan and although testing his resolve at times, has followed Everton from an early age! Mike says football “is now a three-generation affair, going to matches with grandad and son.” Cathy enjoys running, swimming and she adores reading.  Together, they enjoy spending time with their children, walks in the countryside, visits to the grandparents on the coast and travelling when they can.

For the last 20 years Mike’s corporate energy supply career focused on new product development and managing teams.  Cathy ‘s career has been customer-facing in Account Management and Retail.  Mike had the opportunity to take voluntary redundancy in 2021 and the couple took time out to really think about next steps and an important change in direction.

What inspired you most about Seniors Helping Seniors?

Mike says, “We looked long and hard at what we wanted from the next stage of our lives.”

Cathy says, “We knew how rewarding elderly care could be, on a personal level and in a business sense because Mike’s family ran a residential care home. We’ve been very close to the problems facing the sector; an ageing population leading to supply v demand issues, staffing problems and difficulties in providing the right care in the right way.”

“Seniors Helping Seniors stood out as a disrupter tackling home care in a really unique way. We feel honoured to be the first Seniors Helping Seniors in the Midlands.”

As Mike puts it, “One question we continually asked ourselves in our quest to find the right business was how it would feel when we looked back in older age and what we had achieved. We love the idea of being able to look back knowing that we did our bit to make a difference to peoples’ lives”

How is Seniors Helping Seniors different? 

Cathy states, “In our search for the perfect business we came across countless home care providers, but it was Seniors Helping Seniors that really stood out.  Seniors Helping Seniors helps solve two critical social issues for the price of one!” Elderly welfare care and well-paid employment for people with experience who want to work flexible hours.

Mike continues, “We ensure both client and carer are at the heart of everything we do. The outcome of this unique approach is:

  • Flexible employment at a wage aligned to the Living Wage Foundation, for amazing people who want to give back
  • High quality care provided by like-minded life experienced people where interests and passions are matched to create a strong relationship
  • A tailored approach to care – no minimum hours or restrictive contracts locking you into services
  • Every visit designed to make a difference – our minimum visit time is one hour as lasting relationships can’t be built in less
  • Consistency – care provided by the same people on a regular basis, rather than just whoever is available at that time and in that area

We love that this is not box-ticking care. It feels good to be part of a premium, tailored home care service that really makes a difference. Thankfully, the glowing reviews that Seniors Helping Seniors receives are testament to that.”
