What is meant by personal care?


Personal care is support that involves physical contact between a CareGiver and Client. This can include washing, dressing, grooming, toileting and continence care. Personal homecare incorporates all of these services, within the comfortable and familiar surroundings of your own home.

"All the CareGivers we have been introduced to have been lovely, and nothing is too much trouble, they see to mum’s personal care needs and do some light housework, and will make drinks and meals if required. I would highly recommend their services."

The level of care we provide can be tailored completely to your needs and preferences. Our CareGivers support Clients to whatever level is necessary.
