A message from the team

I grew up watching my grandma struggle as she got older. My grandma could barely climb the stairs by herself or prepare food. It was very upsetting to watch her lose her independence and become someone I didn’t recognise. My family didn’t know how to help the woman who had always been the head of our family. We all had our own lives to lead too, it was exhausting and heart-breaking. Thankfully, we called this company. We could see how dedicated they were, it put us at ease knowing someone we trusted would be supporting grandma every day. They notice her changes and adapt so quickly, it’s remarkable to watch.

I was so inspired by these wonderful Companions, they set my future without knowing it. I’m currently studying my Level 3 in Health & Social Care. I want to be the person that helps the vulnerable stay strong, to be the relief the families need at such a difficult time and to be an inspiration to others, just like they were to me.”

Our Service

We are different from other providers. Established in 2003, we have gained a great reputation for providing high standards starting with our directors. Our directors know how important Care Companions are and the vital role they play, they were once Carers themselves and still actively deliver care. We understand everyone will have a different level of care, which is why we ensure our wide range of services are completely bespoke. Striving to help older adults remain independent for as long as possible within their own homes, matching with language and culture. Most importantly, care is at the heart of everything we do.
