Our carers

We hold our carers to the highest standards. We start by conducting background checks and in-person evaluations. But the most important question we ask is, “Would I trust this individual to care for my own mother?”

If you choose us, you can be confident that you’ll get a caregiver who is qualified, experienced, and trustworthy. Our live-in carers have extensive experience in the field, and they receive ongoing training to stay up-to-date on the latest best practices.

They have been thoroughly vetted and interviewed, and they have all passed an enhanced DBS check. You can be sure that they will always be on time, friendly, and helpful. We only hire people that we would trust to look after our own families.

We are confident that you will be satisfied with the quality of care that you receive from our carers. We only hire the best, and we are committed to providing you with the peace of mind that you need.

How Does Dementia Home Care Work?

Dementia daily home care is a type of care where a trained caregiver visits your home on a daily basis to provide support for people with dementia. This can include help with personal care, household chores, companionship, and medication management.

Dementia daily home care can be a great option for people with dementia who need help with activities of daily living (ADLs) but still want to stay in their own homes. It can also be a good option for people with dementia who need companionship or support during the day.

Step 1: Book a free consultation

Our care assessments are completely free of charge, whether you decide to take up dementia care or not. You will speak with an experienced member of our team who can discuss your options and help you determine if home care is right for you.

Step 2: Complete an application and care assessment

Following your telephone consultation, we will ask you to complete an application form and care assessment online or via post. This will cover every aspect of your loved one’s requirements, including medication, health needs, food, drink, and preferred interests. From this, we can create a care and support plan for your loved one.

Step 3: Agreement and matching stage

Our team will work with you and your loved one to find a suitable and fitting carer based on their needs, preferences, and requirements. Prior to this, we will ask you to complete an agreement online or via post.

Step 4: Review the carer’s profile

Once we have found a suitable carer, we will send you their profile. This will give you and your family time to review the carer’s qualifications, experience, and availability.

Step 5: Choose a start date

We will then arrange a fitting start date for the carer to begin their duties. One of our live-in care managers will accompany the carer into your loved one’s home to ensure a smooth settling-in period.

We are here to help you every step of the way

We understand that making the decision to move into live-in care can be a big one. That’s why we are here to help you every step of the way. We will work with you to find the right carer for your loved one, and we will be there to support you throughout the process.
