TenderCare Services is a family-owned and operated nurse registry based in Stuart, Florida. TenderCare was established in 1994 and has specialized in referring the very best in-home caregivers to families of the Treasure Coast ever since. The owners of TenderCare Services are a husband and wife team, Linda Nicol and Alan Pearce, who packed up the entire family home, cat and dog included, and moved to Stuart from England in 2008. In 1987 the family bought a catamaran named Serendy, which they renovated to charter in the British Virgin Islands. By chance, they visited the beautiful City of Stuart to meet a British naval architect who would undertake the task of making Serendy seaworthy. Linda immediately fell in love with the area, and it was her dream to live on the Treasure Coast one day. Linda and Alan bring a wealth of experience from their extensive health care background in England, where they owned and operated both an in-home care company and a 92-bed nursing home called Roden Hall. Linda maintains that “although things are done very differently in America, great care and wonderful customer service are the same wherever you are.” After finishing college degrees in England, their son and daughter, Edward and Annabel, joined the family business in 2009. Together with a fantastic team of staff, the family prides itself on guiding its clients through the process of receiving exceptional in-home care referrals.
