The Directors started the service to make a difference in their local community by providing a bespoke companionship led care service. To them it is important to treat each client as if they were family and keep them independent in their own homes for as long as possible. Every visit is a minimum of 1-hour, meaning they can really tailor the support received whether that be companionship, home help or personal care services.
