Who are our live-in carers

Who are our live-in carers?

We hold your carer’s performance to a high level. From background checks and in-person evaluations to the simplest and most effective question: “Would I trust this individual to look after my mother?”

You can be confident that if you choose us, you will be assigned a caregiver who is qualified for the job.

Our Live-In Caregivers have extensive local knowledge. They receive in-house expert introduction training and ongoing refresher training to keep their skills up to date with industry best practices.

They have been thoroughly vetted, interviewed, and the Disclosure and Barring Service has provided them with an enhanced check (DBS). They will always arrive on time, greet you with a friendly smile, and remain courteous and helpful. We only hire the best people who we would trust to look after our own family.
