Personal care at its best

Personal Care

Personal care helps you or your loved one complete day-to-day tasks like bathing, getting dressed or ready for bed with dignity and comfort.

We work with you to develop a tailored personal care plan focused on consideration and respect, whether it be helping you maintain your personal hygiene or performing more intimate tasks like changing a catheter.

Our fully trained care workers always deliver personal care with kindness and sensitivity, remembering your Right to Respect every time. You’ll get to know them and build a relationship together built on trust and discretion.

You or your relative may want long term personal care or just an occasional visit. Perhaps you’re getting back on your feet after a spell in hospital or those stairs don’t make a bath seem very inviting anymore?

It doesn’t matter how much or how little help you need.

We support you to make life easier.

  • Washing
  • Bathing
  • Shaving

  • Getting ready for bed
  • Taking medication

Dad has had a shower each day this week & the house looks neat & tidy. What a difference!  Thought all care companies would be the same! Glad to be so wrong.

What are the options for personal care at home?

Our personal care options are designed to fit your individual needs and routines. We know that your needs are individual to you. That’s why we work to your routine, likes and dislikes, and will always do our best to help to maintain as much independence as possible. Many of our clients ask for help with:

Bathing and showering
If you or your loved one are struggling with maintaining personal hygiene, our personal home carers can help. They’ll provide a safe and respectful environment so you can enjoy a relaxing bath or soothing shower.

Going to the toilet
Our personal home carers are trained to support you with the utmost sensitivity and respect in all circumstances. They can help monitor and change your continence pads, support your needs with a bed pan, or help you get to the toilet from your bedroom.

Oral hygiene
Our carers can help you maintain oral hygiene on a daily basis, and can also facilitate a regular trip to, or a visit from, your local dentist.

Health & beauty
Looking your best sometimes helps you feel your best too. Whether you have specialist creams that need to be regularly applied, want help with doing your hair, or support with shaving, a personal care assistant will help you maintain your appearance. Everybody has their own preferences for health and beauty, and we will do our best to accommodate yours.
