When you’re looking for the right type of home care for yourself or a loved one, we know how difficult it can be to try and decipher between the different options available. The Good Care Group is proud to offer both live-in care and hourly care to our clients in the Acton area. Find out more about these two types of home care below.
Hourly care in Acton
Hourly care is a flexible and personalised home care service that is designed to provide support and assistance for individuals through companionship care, helping with household chores and any day-to-day tasks that they have. Hourly care allows individuals to maintain their independence and to stay in the comfort of their own homes whilst receiving the necessary support to enhance their quality of life and well-being.
Our professional carers based in Acton can do flexible visits in as little as one-hour to help you or your loved ones run errands, such as popping to the pharmacy to pick up medication and visiting the local store to pick up milk and a magazine. We employ carers local to your area so that they are familiar with the community and are confident on areas to visit when providing support.
We understand how important it is for our clients to keep their independence as much as possible. That is why we offer quality care that is flexible to your needs where the care plan can be adapted at any given time.
Live-in care in Acton
If you want more in-depth care, live-in care could be the right option for you. Around-the-clock support and assistance is offered to individuals with complex care needs, where a dedicated caregiver goes into the individual’s home, typically on a rotational basis depending on the individual’s needs. Live-in care ensures that caregivers are present 24-hours a day, providing continuous care and supervision.
By choosing live-in care at The Good Care Group, we will ensure that our carers are matched perfectly to your requirements based on their personality, skills and experience. We will also create a personalised care plan that will be tailored to support your needs and to ensure that the best care is delivered.
We truly believe that live-in care is a better alternative to residential care as it provides the option for individuals to remain in the comfort and familiarity of their own home, in a space where they hold many memories surrounded by their belongings and a community they are comfortable with. Also, the level of continuity and support ensures that care is consistently available, with a more one-to-one focus.
If complex needs are required, we offer a specialist service that is led by our in-house Occupational Therapist and Consultant Admiral Nurse, who work with those that require in-depth support with care needs such as dementia and frailty.

Hourly Care Manager,
I’m Jessica, Hourly Care Manager for The Good Care Group. I first joined the company in 2019 as a Live-in Care Manager, which I did for two years before leaving to start up an hourly care service for a franchise provider in North London. I rejoined The Good Care Group in 2022 as the Hourly Care Manager.
As Hourly Care Manager, my role involves working alongside our client services team, assessing new clients, creating robust care plans and risk assessments of their needs and working alongside the scheduling team to find a suitable match of carer for each client to ensure that their care is set up to achieve the best outcomes. I may also need to work alongside our Occupational Therapist or Consultant Admiral Nurse when setting up more complex care placements. My role varies day to day, and a lot of what I do involves supporting my team of carers and my clients with whatever the day brings.
My career in health and social care started in 2010. Since then, I have worked in various roles including as a carer, care scheduler, care supervisor, care manager and registered care manager.
As part of my role, I need to complete regular calls to check in and stay up to date with my care team and clients. Every three months, my care team is called for supervision and clients have visits and monitoring calls to ensure that they are happy with the care being provided to them. Clients also have six-monthly or monthly reviews of their care. If there are incidents or accidents, I provide support to them to ensure the safety of everyone involved, ensuring to review risk assessments and care plans to prevent future occurrences. I also work with the training team and support carers with their career development. My role is to ensure that the care team feels supported and clients are happy with the care and support that they are receiving.
I hold a Level 5 in Health and Social Care and have supported individuals with a wide range of needs including dementia, palliative care, Parkinson’s, cancer, motor neurone disease, multiple sclerosis, learning disabilities, autism, mental health and neurological conditions.
Alongside my Level 5 Diploma in Health and Social Care Management, I also hold a Level 3 in Education and Training, BILD Assessors qualification and an Open University qualification in Autism Awareness. I am a first aid instructor, moving and handling instructor and medication trainer. I believe that training is a vital part of the care role and continual development ensures the individuals that we support get the quality care they need.
I have witnessed both obstacles and successes within the sector and seen first-hand what difference can be made whether big or small in someone's life. I believe that the journey I have taken from starting as a carer to becoming a manager has allowed me to understand what support needs to be provided not only to the individuals we support, but the amazing carers that are providing it. I understand the importance of ensuring the highest quality of care is delivered, and enjoy leading and encouraging my team to work towards the best possible outcomes. I am an experienced care manager and have managed both hourly and live-in care in a home care setting. I have been able to see the benefits of people receiving care in their own home and remaining at home.
I am very proud of the journey I have been on to get to where I am currently in my career. I feel proud of my development and that I have been able to witness everything I have along the way from a carer to a manager.
