Naturally, meeting your individual needs is the most important thing – so our arrangements are flexible and can be adjusted to suit your requirements.

Please note, carers are available during any day for a maximum of 10 hours. If a client’s dependency gets to the point where they consistently exceed this, we would have to start looking at 24-hour care packages. If a carer is woken during the night on a regular basis, there is also ‘waking night’ remuneration which is detailed in our client agreement.

You should also allow for the carer’s a food allowance of £30 a week and WiFi and a television must be made available in a carer’s bedroom.
