We provide a professional, flexible service which allows you choice, independence and dignity. The service compares favourably in terms of cost with residential and nursing home care and enables people to stay in the familiar surroundings of their own homes.

Even short periods of live in care, for example, after discharge from hospital, can transform an elderly person's life and can put them back on the path to independence.

We hold a register of suitably experienced carers who have been subjected to a rigorous vetting procedure. This includes an in-depth interview and an investigation into their previous good character and work record.

Please note ALL of our carers have passed a Disclosure and Barring Service 'Enhanced Clearance Check'.

You can be confident that the carers we provide you with, will be selected for their skills and personality to match your requirements.

Who are the Carers?

Carers come from a wide range of backgrounds and experiences. Some have a background in nursing, some have come into caring after raising a family or looking after an elderly relative. All share a liking for people, understanding and a commitment to providing high quality home care.

What do Carers do?

Carers provide high quality personal care, companionship and practical support on a live in basis. In other words, a good carer, a Quality Carer, performs the duties of a concerned friend or relative. They can help with all everyday activities enabling clients to feel secure and to make the most of life while remaining as independent as possible. Carers can look after people with many different needs, both physical and psychological, and are particularly aware of the needs of those with dementia. The wide variety of tasks that a can assist with include:

  • bathing, dressing, use of the lavatory, getting in and out of bed, eating and drinking, manicures and hair care, rehabilitation, outings and social stimulation;

along with -

  • light housework, laundry, ironing, shopping, preparation of meals, collecting pensions, assistance with correspondence, form filling and other administrative tasks.

Carers do not undertake heavy domestic duties or carry out work that should be done by medical professionals.

PLEASE NOTE: Quality Carers is not a nursing agency. Carers do not offer a nursing service and cannot undertake nursing tasks.

A normal assignment for a carer will last two weeks. After which they will hand over to another Quality Carer. We find this arrangement is ideal for both client and carer because:

  • Over the past 14 years we have found that most clients enjoy having a fresh face every couple of weeks, it is stimulating. We usually have a 'mini team' of carers for long term clients, which provides for a new but familiar face every fortnight. A little like meeting an old friend again

  • As they say "familiarity breeds contempt". Having a fresh pair of eyes every 2 weeks can (and has) spotted concerns and changes in the client that may go unnoticed if the same carer was left continually in place

  • Carers generally have their own homes and families too and do not wish to be away from them for too long a period

All carers have manual handling training.

Carers are required to have 3 hours free time each day and a good nights sleep. In certain circumstances where this may not be possible, two carers may be needed.

How long do I have to have a carer for?

Quite simply, for as long as you want one.

Many elderly people worry that by agreeing to have a live in carer they are then committed to have one for the rest of their lives. This is not true. We do not ask you to sign long term contracts or binding agreements.

In some cases, a person may feel resistant to having a live in carer in their home. We find that they are usually reassured to know that if they try a carer for 2 weeks and are not happy with the arrangement, they have no obligation to continue.
