Condition-led care at home
With the right care and support, those with conditions and illness can remain living safely in their own home rather than moving into a care home.
Many conditions and illnesses can make life challenging both for the individual and the family around them. However, in most cases, remaining at home, in familiar surroundings is the best scenario. We have the expertise and specialist carers to support you and your family, whatever your circumstances, to receive care at home, be well looked after and kept safe.
Our care service is very personal and flexible – you can choose who looks after you and when they are there to help. Our carers can be there during usual working hours around 8 – 6, overnight, or live in to provide round the clock care so that you have peace of mind 24 hours a day.
Our carers are carefully selected and trained, with experience in Dementia and other related conditions such as Alzheimer’s, MS, Parkinson’s and are able to provide the respect, understanding and patience required.
If you have a loved one that you are worried about living on their own, but you’d like them to stay at home, get in touch with us to discuss how we can help.
Our rota-based home care services
Our ‘Rosy Rota’ care service has operated successfully for many years and is approved by our clients and carers alike. We will carefully select a few different carers who will provide you with the exact support that you need, exactly when you need it.
Why choose home care?
Home care is a preferred option to a care home, and is usually the cheapest option. The main benefits to receiving care at home is the ability to choose who your carers are, and the care is one-to-one and revolves around you. If you stay at home you can choose your meals, keep your own routine, enjoy your garden or pets, and stay somewhere that’s familiar and has memories. For those with conditions that affect memory, it can be very beneficial to keep surroundings known.
Home care is completely tailored to the individual so that their way of life is disrupted as little as possible and kept as normal as possible. Our carers look after you and your home, but can also take you out to your favourite local places, shopping, go to the hairdressers or help you receive guests.
We take great care in placing the right carers with our clients so that your loved ones receive the exact support, care and understanding that they need.
Client story: Alzheimer’s
We have been looking after this single lady since 2006. She has serious Alzheimer’s and mobility problems. She has her own private Housekeeper and our carer works in conjunction with her to ensure that she has around the clock care. Her niece and nephew are amazed that she is still alive and having a reasonable quality of life. They believe that this is down to the fact that she has had such good care from the same team of carers for so many years.
Client story: Parkinson’s
This French lady came to the UK as an Au Pair after the war and fell in love with a relative of the family she was working for.. Sadly she contracted Parkinson’s very early in life, at the age of 47. She managed her condition for many years but eventually was unable to do anything for herself. She needed full time live in carers as well as daily carers to help with the hoists. When I visited her we spent a long time talking about her life. She could still laugh at situations and had a great sensitivity towards other people. She told me she was a numerologist and could work out people by calculating numbers from their birth date. She said she would do mine but unfortunately she deteriorated very quickly. She did say to me that she never wanted to go into a care home and that it was amazing that she could still have this high level of care in her own home. It was a privilege to have known her.
Your safety and peace of mind are paramount
All our Bunbury Carers are thoroughly checked in line with the UKHCA Code of Practice and have current DBS certification. They have the experience, knowledge and qualifications to look after vulnerable adults, maintaining the dignity and respect of the client.
Depending on the carer’s abilities and qualifications, they can provide various levels of personal care, administer medication and assist with moving and handling. They will assist with housekeeping, prepare and maintain a well balanced diet and provide companionship and support to meet all of your requirements.
When recruiting we perform a thorough procedure of checks and the carers must provide:
- Full details of their work experience or CV.
- Copies of all their qualifications.
- At least two references from recent employers.
- Two forms of identification.

All references are meticulously checked and verified by us over the telephone with previous Employers. This allows us to ask further questions and gain more in-depth knowledge of the carer. The carer is then interviewed by us to ensure they are suitable for our clients.
