Companionship & Personal Care
Our home care service allows you to remain living independently within the comfort of your own familiar surroundings by providing a little home help and support at the times of day or week when you need it most. Our home care service is available in and around Malvern and Worcester.
We can provide care at home from as little as once a week, perhaps for a trip out, although we are often asked to help our elderly clients and those with disabilities on a daily basis.
Normally we assist at multiple times during the day, for example with a home care visit in the morning, at lunch, tea-time and/or in the evening. These home care visits may be as short as 15 minutes or as long as you would like.
Our experience has shown that a personal care visit will typically range from 30 minutes to an hour whilst a companionship or home help visit may last for up to several hours depending upon the client's needs and preferences.
We can also provide night care including sleepover and waking night cover. A few home care visits a day can often make the difference between needing to go into a residential care home or being able to stay in your own home.
