Read some of our families’ care stories at Right at Home.
Betty always told her children that she hoped never to end up in a residential care home or living with them, but wanted to maintain her own independence.
Sam has Asperger Syndrome and lives in his own flat. His parents knew he needed some supervision and assistance with living on his own and wanted to encourage his independence with support from a CareGiver of a similar age.
The many years Bob spent as a soldier and active construction worker were beginning to take a physical toll. At first, he simply had trouble standing up from his chair without a helping hand, but he soon needed more help.
I feel really safe with the support workers and they give me confidence. They are better than any medication and they make me feel more positive. I enjoy the chats that we have and I feel they don't judge me for what I am. It's good to have a chat and a girl's day out. I feel that I've made new friends and I am so happy that we put this into place.
I cannot speak highly of the Right at Home team. Very professional, empathetic and reliable. All the team members who looked after me were very punctual and friendly and helpful.
What a difference the fantastic group of support workers made to my close friend, helping keep his independence whilst visiting London on holiday. The managing director and care manager efficiently organised care in his hotel ahead of his arrival so he could fully enjoy his time in London. Very professional, knowledgeable and friendly team.
