- Help to meet medication needs, from collecting prescriptions, to gentle prompts or administering your medication. We can even accompany you to any medical appointments if you require support.
Your care planning is carried out in your home by one of our dedicated care supervisors.
We recognise that your circumstances might change so to ensure we are responsive in providing a personalised service we do regular checks of your care plan. These are carried out by our care supervisors who work with you and everyone involved in your care and family members to ensure you get the very best support.
Assessing funding options and navigating home care costs can be daunting. Whether you are just starting to consider options or you’re in the process of setting up care paid by the local authority, we’re here to help you get a better understanding of the costs involved.
The best way to find out if you or a loved one is eligible for financial support is to talk to your local authority. Every local authority has its own criteria for its assessments.
Our home care services are available to self-funding clients as well as clients who receive funding from their local authority.
If you are interested in our services, call 0191 203 1253 or email care.
