At Nightingales, we uphold the utmost standards for our carers. Our commitment to reliability begins with comprehensive measures such as background checks and in-person evaluations. However, the ultimate question we consider is, “Would I entrust this individual to care for my own mother?”

Rest assured that when you choose our services, your caregiver will be qualified, experienced, and trustworthy. Our live-in carers possess extensive field experience and regularly undergo training to stay updated on the latest best practices.

Each carer undergoes meticulous vetting and interviews, and they all successfully pass an enhanced DBS check. You can rely on them to be punctual, friendly, and supportive. Our selection process is designed to hire only those individuals we would wholeheartedly trust to care for our own families.

We firmly believe that you will be satisfied with the exceptional quality of care provided by our carers. Our dedication lies in hiring only the best, ensuring that you experience the peace of mind you truly deserve.

How does home care work?

  1. Reserve your complimentary assessment. Our care assessments come at no cost, regardless of whether you choose to proceed with our services. During this session, you’ll have the opportunity to speak with an experienced team member who can explore your options and assist you in determining if home care is the ideal solution for your needs.
  2. After your telephone assessment, we’ll request you to complete an application form and care assessment, available either online or via post. This comprehensive assessment will encompass all aspects of your loved one’s requirements, including medication, health needs, dietary preferences, and preferred interests. Based on this information, we’ll develop a personalised care and support plan tailored to your loved one’s specific needs.
  3. Progressing to the agreement and matching stage, our team will collaborate with you and your loved one to find a suitable and compatible carer based on their individual needs, preferences, and requirements. Before finalising the arrangement, we’ll ask you to complete an agreement either online or via post.
  4. Once we identify a suitable carer, their profile will be sent to you, giving you and your family sufficient time to review their qualifications, experience, and availability.
  5. Subsequently, we’ll coordinate a fitting start date for the carer to commence their duties. To ensure a smooth settling-in period, one of our live-in care managers will accompany the carer into your loved one’s home.
