Visiting Care

What is Visiting Care

Little and often our visitor support makes a significant difference

Visiting Care provides the support you need, whenever you need it, so you can continue living in the comfort of your own home. With the help of as little as half an hour a week and up to multiple visits a day, a visiting caregiver can make all the difference.

We're here when you need it most. From assisting with your medication and toileting to learning about your favourite food and whether you prefer a bath or shower, our fully regulated visitor care service allows you to continue living the life you want, on your terms.

We know that sometimes asking for help can be difficult. We're here to explain your visitor support options and total costs. Call us today to speak to one of our friendly Customer Advisors.

How is visiting care different?

In contrast to residential care, visiting care takes place in your home at your own time. It allows you to get the support you need without having to interrupt moving to a nursing or nursing home.

Visiting care is also fully personalized to your needs and requirements: if you prefer to do certain aspects of your care yourself, such as showering or personal hygiene, our caregivers will always respect your choice and independence. Visiting care can also be tailored if you need more help with specific tasks or if your needs continue to grow.

With personal support from a trained caregiver, you can enjoy what matters most to you. With a fully managed and regulated service, you can rest assured that the care you and your family receive is safe and of the highest standard.

How to organize visiting care

Our goal is to make organizing visitor support a seamless and hassle-free process. After an initial consultation, one of our local staff will sit down with you and your family to understand your needs and how we can meet those needs.

We can arrange for care to start when you need it and be ready for discharge. Because life circumstances can change suddenly, if you have a family emergency or need a few days off to care for a loved one, we can arrange for you quickly, ensuring you always have support.

Our advisors are here to help you understand your visitor care options and find the right solution for you and your family. They are just a phone call away, so talk to one of them today.

Who can benefit from Visiting Care?

Visiting Care is available to anyone who needs a little extra help to live the independent life they want to lead. It can be especially helpful after surgery or a serious injury, and for people with conditions like Parkinson's disease.

Whether you're looking for help for your friend or family member, our caregivers are there to help with whatever you need. With the advice of our nursing staff, we can support people with extended care needs.

We can also support students or young adults by helping them maintain an active social life at university or by helping them recover from a back injury. As a member of the Dementia Action Alliance, we look after people with different forms of dementia and their families around the clock
