Our Service

We are very proud to hold a “Good” CQC rating and a 5* rating on a homecare leading review website, showing that compassionate care really can make a life-changing difference. We also have an excellent reputation locally as a great employer too.

Your Role

Every client we visit is unique, meaning you meet different people every day, all with various levels of independence. Your role will depend on who you’re personally matched with, but don’t worry, we can talk to you about their needs. You may have some questions around personal care, or possibly the wrong idea about what it includes, but we can put your mind at ease. Sometimes you may -

  • Make their breakfast together.
  • Assist with washing, brushing hair and dressing.
  • Prepare satisfying, nutritious meals.
  • Accompany them to appointments or to do activities they enjoy.
  • Help them up the stairs and into bed in the evening.  
  • Ensure they feel safe for the night when you leave.
