The Company

To this provider, ‘care’ means quality care! The owners opened the service following a personal experience of finding it difficult to find high quality care for a family member and they have a passion to make sure everyone in their local community has the same type of care they were able to find. The company’s mission is to support older adults to be independent in their own homes, providing bespoke person-centred care service that really does benefit the people they support. Every visit is no less than an hour, meaning they can really tailor the support received whether that be companionship, home help or personal care services.

This is more than a job, it is a vocation and you will need to be kind and compassionate, with a big heart! If you can make an older person’s life brighter, feel great satisfaction from doing it, then you are exactly who we are looking for.
