Why Us For Home Care
Life enhancing home care
We passionately believe that elderly people deserve to live life their way for as long as possible in the safety and comfort of their own home, with dignity and independence. We know through experience that the benefits of being able to stay at home instead of going into residential care are far reaching.
Our range of home care services cover everything from companionship, personal care, lifestyle support, domestic duties and social activities, through to specialist care of conditions that typically affect elderly people, including dementia and Parkinson’s. Most of our client’s choose live-in care, but we do also provide hourly care but only for 7-12 consecutive hours for 3 days a week or more in the London area. Some of our client’s require a shorter term respite service, which we can provide as either live in or day care.
With many of our clients living with dementia or some form of cognitive impairment, we believe one-to-one, consistent and continuous care makes all the difference to overall health and wellbeing, so the majority of our placements are managed on a live-in basis.

Here is what some of our professional carers say about working for The Good Care Group.
“I am proud to be a part of The Good Care Group, a company that cares not only about its clients but also its people . Everyone is professional and support is always provided when required. The training I received enabled me to feel confident and flourish in my placement. I am very thankful to the Good Care Group for finding me such a wonderful placement. They matched me and my client’s personalities perfectly, and I think it has played a huge part in us building such a strong relationship with each other. It feels great to wake up every day and put a smile on my client’s face, to know that I can make their day a little bit special. Being there for someone, knowing that I can make a real difference, help to make life enjoyable again, brings more meaning into my own life and I believe makes me a better person.”
“I joined The Good Care Group having worked in the care sector for the past five years. The dedicated and professional care team provide both clients and carers with help, advice and support whenever it is needed. I am very impressed with the quality of the induction training we receive before placement, far better than any other I have attended – it was first class. Carers are kept well informed and our input is always welcome, creating an environment where the carers feel very much part of the business and what it is trying to achieve.”
“Working for The Good Care Group is both challenging and incredibly rewarding. All of the carers are so passionate about improving the lives of our clients and are supported in achieving this. The Good Care Group is not just delivering high quality care, it is revolutionising it. If being a Professional Carer is a career you wish to pursue, you would find The Good Care Group the perfect place to start your journey – the comprehensive training and on-going development is outstanding.”
“I have been working for The Good Care Group as a Professional Carer since March 2010. Through my client placements I have been given the opportunity and support to improve my knowledge and skills whilst improving the quality of the client’s life. I enjoy striving to make the company’s vision of being a leading live-in care provider a reality and am very proud to be making a difference to people’s lives.”
