Our strength is in the experience and skills of our team.

The team at Eximius has over 80 years’ combined experience and knowledge of the care industry.



Before founding Eximius in 2016, Kate ran a care franchise for 13 years employing over 100 carers and caring for more than 350 clients at any one time.

Many of her clients needed live-in care which quickly became her passion.

Throughout my career, I have seen the enormous impact live-in care has on people’s lives. Our clients are happier in their own homes, surrounded by their comforts with easy access to their friends and family. Our carers and companions relieve them of any anxiety they might have felt about living on their own, or coping with the logistics of daily life.  

And the families we support no longer have to worry about the safety of their parent or friend. They have the peace of mind to know they are in safe, nurturing hands.  

I want all our clients to be delighted by our service and ensure they are treated with dignity and respect.
