At Our HomeCare Service, our commitment to the highest standards for our carers is unwavering. We have a comprehensive selection process that includes thorough background checks and in-person evaluations. However, the most crucial question we ask ourselves is, “Would I confidently entrust this individual with the care of my own mother?”

When you choose us, you can be entirely assured that you’ll be matched with a caregiver who is qualified, experienced, and trustworthy. Our live-in carers have extensive expertise in their field and continuously undergo training to stay updated with the latest best practices.

Every carer undergoes meticulous vetting and interviews, and they all successfully complete enhanced DBS checks, ensuring that they are dependable, punctual, friendly, and helpful. Our recruitment process is centered on selecting individuals we would wholeheartedly trust to care for our own families.

Your satisfaction with the care provided by our carers is of utmost importance to us. We are fully dedicated to hiring the best and providing you with the peace of mind you rightfully deserve.

How does diabetes home care work?

This comprehensive assessment will cover all aspects of your loved one’s requirements, including medication, health needs, dietary preferences, and interests. Based on this information, we’ll create a tailored care and support plan for your loved one.
  3. Agreement and matching phase. Our team will collaborate with you and your loved one to find a suitable and compatible carer, taking into consideration their individual needs, preferences, and requirements. Prior to this, we’ll ask you to complete an agreement online or via mail.
