This service

Personal care at home is also known as domiciliary care, social care or home care. We can support you with tasks like washing, dressing, taking medication and preparing meals, 24 hours a day – but what we offer is much more.

With us, you are supported to live the life you want, your way. You’ll gain new skills, confidence and independence.

Is it for you?

We support disabled adults with any condition or impairment. These include dysphagia, epilepsy, cerebral palsy, autism, physical impairments and learning difficulties.  We also support disabled adults with clinical needs such as tracheostomy, gastrostomy, suction, oxygen and medication administration.

Getting started

We will talk with you – and others in your life who you want us to – to find out what’s important and how you like to be supported. Together, we’ll develop a support plan around the things you want to do, with a focus on what you’d like to achieve.

Your support staff

We’ll find support staff who you like and you’ll get on with.

Supporting disabled people for the past 60 years, we know just how much selecting friendly and caring staff matters. We train our staff thoroughly to provide safe and quality support.

You can pay with your direct payments, personal budget, private income or through the local authority.

Book us for an hour or two as you need, or at a regular time that suits you.
