These include District Nursing, Health Visiting, Speech and Language Therapy, Physiotherapy and Occupational Therapy. 98% of the people who use our services would recommend our services to their friends and family.
Our mission is to support our service users so they are able to enjoy and maintain their life in the comfort of their home and to respect their personal space, promote their independence and be considerate of every service user's experience, culture, heritage and beliefs.

During the initial assessment, our supervisor will agree a 'Care Plan' with you which will detail the tasks you would like us to do on a regular basis. However, if your care needs change over a period of time, we will be happy to revisit the 'Care Plan' and make the relevant changes as requested.

These times are monitored by the office staff to ensure that care professionals stay the relevant duration as agreed in the care plan.
