We offer an Assisted Bathing Service which can help you bathe, shower or take a full body wash in the privacy of your own home, or at one of our centres in Dartford or Gravesend.

Our staff are very friendly, caring and experienced. The service is regulated by the Care Quality Commission and delivered to the highest standards of care. We continue to seek to improve the quality of the service at all times. (See below for the latest information on our CQC rating). Staff will provide safe bathing procedures either in your home using your own facilities or at our day centres in Dartford or Gravesend.

If you visit either of our centres we have special (easy access) baths to safely wash and get in or out of with the help of our support workers. Some facilities have electronic hoists. (We are in the process of upgrading our Gravesend Centre bathroom during 2018)
