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

When you choose us, rest assured that you’ll be matched with a caregiver who is not only qualified and experienced but also highly trustworthy. Our live-in carers possess extensive expertise in their field and regularly 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 revolves around selecting individuals we would wholeheartedly trust to care for our own families.

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