    What Is Personal Care?

    Personal care is just that, personal.  However, it enables people to continue to live independently in their own home.  It can involve bathing, showering, dressing and toileting. We know people may feel uncomfortable when discussing this for the first time, which is why we make sure you feel in control at all times. We take time to find out how you want us to support you and what makes you feel comfortable.  Whether you want long-term care to deal with a health condition or short-term care whilst you recover from a hospital visit, we are here to help.

    What Our Personal Care Service Includes:

    • Dressing and undressing
    • Washing and bathing
    • Incontinence care
    • Assistance with meals
    • Assistance with medications
    • Mental health support
    • Personal hygiene care

    We tailor our personal care plan to fit perfectly for you, from your specific intimate needs to building a strong client-to-carer relationship.

Some of the common signs to look out for are dirty clothing, lack of oral hygiene, lack of bathing and unclean house. These signs suggest that the person isn’t able to easily complete daily hygiene tasks.

    Bad hygiene can lead to an increased risk of illness, infection and a decline in emotional wellbeing.
