Personal home care

We provide personal home care to help with the more intimate or personal daily routines which may have become more difficult.
Our personal home care services support the elderly and frail, physically disabled, learning disabled, or those with mental health illness with personal daily routines at home that may be impossible to do alone, or have become more difficult.

This kind of support can range from getting out of bed in the morning; help with washing and dressing; assistance with maintaining personal appearance; help and support with toileting/incontinence; getting settled in for the evening and going to bed.

Preserving dignity
We always preserve the dignity of our customer, ensuring that we take a warm and respectful approach to personal home care routines. Personal Care is support that involves physical contact between carer and client, so it can include washing, dressing, grooming, toileting and continence care.
Our care givers pride themselves on being discreet and professional. The carers will respect how their clients like to maintain their personal routines and will support them to whatever level is necessary, from full support to waiting outside the room in case they are needed.

Supporting independence and choice
Wherever possible, and where it is safe to do so, we will let our customers do things for themselves. We encourage independence and confidence in being independent. Our home care team will always respect those we support, offering a personalised service, and taking into account their personal lifestyle, culture, choices, and wishes.

Practical home help
Many people combine some practical home help with some personal home care as often, it is both that are needed.
Getting out and about
We also help with arranging and planning a trip out, visits to friends and family, and support with social activities like attending a local coffee morning, social clubs, bingo, or the cinema.
If you or a loved one has an event to attend such as a wedding or a funeral and will need assistance throughout the day, we can help.
We understand that often, it is not just help at home that is needed but also friendship and companionship.

Who has home care?
A wide range of people receive care at home, from those who have become elderly and frail, have physical disabilities, terminal illness, or complex care needs, to mental health support needs or a learning disability. Our practical home help service assists those who need help with day to day house work, meals, or getting out and about. We offer practical home help for the elderly or anyone who struggles to get practical tasks done in the household. Housework may become more difficult to do, or take much longer.
We also provide live in care for elderly people who have become less able to get around and have become lonely and isolated. The live in care service provides not only the support required but also friendship and companionship.
We work alongside other health and social care professionals you or your loved one may need, such as district nurses, social services, and the NHS.

Regular care plan reviews
In our experience, most home care needs change over time; you may need less, or more support depending on your personal circumstances. A personal care plan will be regularly reviewed and updated.
We always ensure that not only are your care and support needs met but also your personal goals and wishes. Hourly visiting care is the perfect choice if you would like help with certain activities during the day or night. Our Domiciliary care service starts from just 30 minutes per care visit and can be extended to as many hours you require, day or night.

All of our care staff are highly trained and all pass DBS checks formally known as CRB checks. Our office team are friendly and are supported by the registered Manager and and company Managing Directors.
