At Nightingales, we maintain the highest standards for our carers. We take thorough measures, including background checks and in-person evaluations, to ensure their reliability. However, the most crucial question we ask is, “Would I trust this individual to care for my own mother?”

When you choose our services, you can rest assured that your caregiver will be qualified, experienced, and dependable. Our live-in carers possess extensive experience in the field and continuously receive updated training on best practices.

Each carer has undergone meticulous vetting and interviews, and they have all successfully passed an enhanced DBS check. You can count on them to be punctual, friendly, and supportive. Our selection process is designed to only hire individuals we would trust to care for our own families.

We firmly believe that you will be content with the quality of care provided by our carers. We are dedicated to hiring only the best, ensuring that you have the peace of mind you deserve.

How does cancer care work?

  1. Schedule your complimentary consultation now. Our care assessments come at no cost, regardless of whether you choose to proceed with our services. During the consultation, you will have the opportunity to speak with an experienced member of our team who can discuss your options and help you determine if home care is the best fit for your needs.
  2. After the telephone consultation, we will request you to complete an application form and care assessment either online or via post. This comprehensive assessment will cover all aspects of your loved one’s requirements, including medication, health needs, dietary preferences, and preferred interests. Based on this information, we will create a personalised care and support plan tailored to your loved one’s specific needs.
  3. During the agreement and matching stage, our team will collaborate with you and your loved one to find a suitable and fitting carer based on their individual needs, preferences, and requirements. Prior to this, we will ask you to complete an agreement online or via post.
  4. Once we have identified a suitable carer, their profile will be sent to you for review. This will provide you and your family with ample time to assess the carer’s qualifications, experience, and availability.
  5. After reviewing the carer’s profile, we will coordinate a suitable start date for them to begin their duties. To ensure a smooth settling-in period, one of our live-in care managers will accompany the carer into your loved one’s home.
