We offer help and support to carers and people in need of care, across many areas of Buckinghamshire.

Our caring staff are able to provide support for people with a wide range of conditions including physical disabilities, dementia, learning disabilities, autism, long-term illnesses and those who are frail due to age.

We firmly believe in choice and putting the person needing care at the centre of the care that they receive. Everything we do starts with a discussion with the person being cared for, as well as family or friends who provide them with unpaid care. We'll listen and learn from what we are told, then work to produce a unique personal care plan.

Care during the daytime

As well as helping people requiring care to continue living at home as independently as possible, the care we provide also enables carers to take time out for themselves. 

In the daytime, our home care visits usually last for one hour. During these visits we can provide any or all of the following:

  • Assistance with dressing
  • Assistance with mobility
  • Help with washing or bathing
  • Incontinence care
  • Medication reminders
  • Help to get up in the morning and get back to bed at night
  • Food preparation (and dietary monitoring)
  • Light domestic duties

Overnight care

People who need support in the evening or during the night may benefit from our overnight care service.

Also known as a 'sleeping or waking service', this involves a care support worker staying awake in the home throughout the night, ready to provide assistance when needed.

Live-in care

Live-in care is most useful for people who need someone with them for most of the day. It involves a member of staff staying in the home — either permanently or on rotation with another colleague — and providing help that enables the person needing care to continue living in their own home.

Live-in care will typically involve help with things such as travel to and from appointments, or assistance with shopping. 

When allocating live-in care support, we'll firstly speak to the person needing help to understand their exact needs. We'll take into account everything from where they like to go during the daytime, to the type of food they like to cook. Then, we'll do our best to match them with a colleague who matches their needs.

Staff must have their own bedroom plus up to four hours’ break a day, however we can provide another care support worker to visit during this break if required.
