What happens next?

If you are interested in this service, either Karen,Tony or Kay will arrange to visit you at home (Please Note, there is a charge, payable in advance, for this home assessment), so that we can be sure we fully understand your needs and preferences and we can explain a bit more about how the service works. If you decide you'd like to go ahead, we will agree together when and how to start. Everything will be confirmed in writing to you too, including how we keep in touch.

Please note that we are not able to offer personal care (help with using the bathroom, washing or dressing etc.), undertake medical tasks or be a keyholder for your property. Apart from that - we will try to be as flexible as we possibly can!

We are very sensitive to the particular needs of carers - whether you live with the person you care for or are at a distance. Please do get in touch if you would like to discuss how our service may be of assistance to you.
