About Us


Denise and her DadIn 2006 Charles Edward Brooker passed away quietly in the middle of the night. He died from the effects of Parkinson’s disease, Dementia and Diabetes aged just 68.

Fortunately for Eddie, his daughter Denise Howells, was by his side with nearly 30 years of nursing and caring experience. Denise was able to help, care and guide him and other family members through the torturous journey which was at times both unforgiving yet rewarding.

After Eddie died, Denise decided to set up her own home care company, naming it after her father with the sole aim of providing the same level of care to others that she was able to provide her father when he was in need.

Brooker Care is not just a business; it is a team of like-minded, professional and excellently trained Care Staff who believe that we are all entitled to consideration and respect.

Our Carers

tonyandjohnOur Staff are picked because of their character and then trained, not just to CQC regulations, but to the standard that Denise sets. Our team all work with the principles of person centred care that must promote independence and involvement; communication, companionship, consideration and compassion.

We are proud of the team that represents Brooker Care and the feedback we receive from our Clients.

Our office team


DeniseThe founder and owner of Brooker Care, Denise has nearly 30 years of nursing and caring experience and is qualified with a Level 5 Diploma in Health and Social Care.

Denise always knew that she wanted to work within the Care industry. Upon leaving school, Denise started at Halsford Park House Care Home in East Grinstead. Having trained hard, Denise then became a Team Leader when SilverCourt was built in the place of Halsford Park.

Over 30 years later, and after gaining all major qualifications, Denise recognised that she could really make a difference in West Sussex by offering the very best of all that she had learned – whilst retaining her own, unique levels of attention and compassion.

“We do not just offer an Induction to our new clients – it is an INTRODUCTION to ensure that everyone is happy with the selection.”

Denise nursed her father,Eddie Brooker, through a long and traumatic illness until his death and Denise decided to base the company on his name as a measure of the specific care and consideration that was needed throughout his illness.

Denise is a qualified and experienced professional who continues to ensure that both she and her team remain the best in their profession.

Denise continues to work alongside her team and follows a detailed process of training for all her Carers that starts with a detailed introduction to new Clients and continues with subsequent, consistent involvement with all concerned with the precious care provided.
