Established as a family run care provider, Harbour Healthcare has grown considerably since we first began back in 2012. We now have homes in locations throughout England and Wales, delivering Residential, Nursing and Dementia care and we continue to grow.
Together we are dedicated to enhancing the wellbeing of all, through quality, excellence and fun.
To be the home of choice in our local communities
Hi, I am Andrew Worsley.
I initially had a retailing background – food retailing, with one of UK largest supermarket chains. Later, I moved into environmental and humanitarian activities and was Managing Director of a group of Companies delivering healthcare and education into developing regions in West Africa and northern India. We also engaged in massive tree planting on the Sahara Desert fringe to prevent desertification and protect precious farmland for subsistence communities. I still have an association with these organisations and the good work is ongoing.
I have been engaged in the UK residential care home business since 2006 and had senior positions in two major UK care home Companies. It was back in 2011 that I acquired our first two care homes and launched Harbour Healthcare. This was very much a family affair, with my wife Margaret, working in the homes and my three sons taking on all the other back-office and leadership roles.
The Harbour Healthcare organisation has continued to grow and prosper and has benefited from the addition of valued Board members who have helped to create the highly respected brand that Harbour is today.
I love the countryside and animals – and I am devoted to my two dogs and four cats! When not cuddling pets, I am usually found in the gym or on the squash court where I still play competitive league squash. Since September 2019, Margaret and I have the joy of being Grandparents, so life is not likely to be boring anytime soon
Chief Executive Officer & Company Director
Hi, I’m Ashley Worsley.
I am the CEO and a Company Director at Harbour Healthcare.
Although Harbour Healthcare has now grown significantly over the last 11 years, we are still very much a family-owned and run business that incorporates family values into everything that we do.
I studied Business Management at University and shortly after graduating secured a position on a Graduate Scheme with one of the world’s leading human resource consulting organisations.
Whilst on the Graduate Scheme, the opportunity arose to help create Harbour Healthcare. I started as an Operations Manager. As with most family businesses that are just starting up, my role had a wide scope; it encompassed not only Operations but HR, IT, Procurement, and often a bit of gardening and maintenance when required. It was certainly hands-on! As the business grew, I became the Company Operations Director in July 2015, and Since June 2019, I have been the CEO and Company Director.
Outside of work, I am a fan of football and I love to travel; I have now been to 60 counties so far and I will eventually see them all. I’m currently a blue belt at Brazilian jiu-jitsu and I love to play golf.
Hello, I’m Honor Keatley, Managing Director of Harbour Healthcare.
I’m a nurse and have been in the NHS and care home industry for almost 40 years, specialising in dementia care along the way.
I’m so proud of what we achieve at Harbour. All of our homes and teams are unique, which enables us to deliver truly person-centred care for our wonderful residents.
Our values and family ethos run through our business. We pride ourselves on quality, fun and being family run.
My other passions in life include:
Being a mum to 6 children – thankfully all now grown up.
Being a Rotarian and supporting my local community with charity work which are fulfilling role and gives me a great sense of purpose.
Being a smallholder, with pigs, geese, peacocks, cats and a dog.
They do say if you want something doing, ask a busy person.

Director of Human Resources
Hi, my name is Taffy Chisango.
I joined Harbour in September 2022 as the Head of HR to lead and support the HR Team to deliver a great HR service to the business. My career in HR has spanned across multiple sectors but I truly believe I have found a passion within the care sector. Coming to work to make a difference to some of our most vulnerable in society fills me with pride and fulfilment knowing I am contributing to help support our most vulnerable adults.
The HR team is focused on making Harbour a Great Place To Work every day. This starts by ensuring we are attracting the right people to come and be a part of our beautiful homes. Supporting team members through robust inductions sets them up for success and ensures we have the right talent and specialists to give our residents a wholesome experience when in any of our Harbour homes. Whether you have been with Harbour for 6 months or 6 years your career aspirations are important to us and we will work alongside you to ensure you reach your full potential.
My greatest passion is recognising success and a job well done. Here at Harbour, we celebrate success at every given opportunity, truly being ambassadors of the caring fun and family-run business Harbour truly are.
When I am not in work I devote my time to my two boys, family and have a great passion for exploring new places. My boys and I have made a list of all the beautiful places we’d love to visit and this excites me to share my passion for travelling with my boys.
Director of Quality & Compliance
Hi, my name is Karen Davies-Read.
I began my career in Health & Social Care as a Nursing Assistant, before commencing and completing my Nursing qualifications and have worked in both Psychiatric and General Hospitals on wards and in community settings in both specialisms of Nursing, post qualification. I transferred to work in Social Care managing and line managing care homes initially in elderly care and in the services for people living with dementia. As my career developed, I managed the range of services in adult social care and childrens service specialisms. I also held a pivotal role in the introduction of Adult protection (safeguarding) in a local authority in Wales, completing a master’s degree in collaborative working.
I am passionate and driven in ensuring that we provide the best possible care for our residents and work hard to share my knowledge and expertise with all grades of staff, working alongside colleagues to develop and sustain continued improvements wherever we can.
I am married to a Naval Warrant Officer, we have five children who are all adults now and three grand-children; two of whom have been with us from birth and are an absolute delight; so my spare time is occupied with the usual clubs and hobbies our grandchildren attend. We love cycling and camping, walking our dog Tedi and spending family time together.
With a love of gardening, we spend as much time as possible outdoors digging or planting with the children and we have just acquired an allotment to extend this hobby.
I joined Harbour Healthcare in February 2022 and I am delighted to say that Harbour embraces true family values, committed to the best care possible for our residents. The values held are intrinsic in everything we do; humility, accountability, achievement, passion and integrity are all wrapped in the thread of kindness that runs through the whole company and I am proud to be a part of Harbours continued progress and development.

I joined Harbour Healthcare in May 2022 as the Executive Administrator. I support the Board of Directors and the Senior Leadership Team with their administration and I provide administrative support for many other areas of the business such as marketing, finance, projects, HR and travel and accommodation.
My varied role gives me the opportunity to work with lots of amazing colleagues who share my passion about our homes, our residents and the work that we do.
When I’m not working, you can find me spending time with my husband, our four children and our rescue pup, Reggie. I am passionate about live music and love going to concerts, and if that wasn’t enough, I’m always training for a challenging hike, half marathon or other sporting event!

I began working for Harbour Healthcare in 2018, however, I have worked in the Health and Social Care sector since 2003.

From the selection of team members working with us, to the training everyone receives through to the environment our residents live in. I chose to work for Harbour Healthcare because of the family values, the wealth of experience and knowledge my colleagues in Harbour hold as well as the ethos of the company – to provide an excellent standard of care to our residents, treating them with complete dignity and respect.
