Our carers are held to the highest standards. We begin with background checks and in-person evaluations. The most important question, however, is, “Would I trust this individual to care for my own mother?”

You can be confident that if you choose us, you will receive a carer who is qualified, experienced, and trustworthy. Our live-in carers have extensive experience in the field and receive ongoing training to stay current on best practises.

They have all passed an enhanced DBS check after being thoroughly vetted and interviewed. You can count on them to always be on time, friendly, and helpful. We only hire people we would trust with our own families.

We look for carers who are kind, compassionate, and patient.

How does Parkinson's disease home care work?

  1. Book a free consultation. Our care assessments are completely free of charge, whether you decide to take up care with us 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.
  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.
  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.
  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.
  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.
