Types of home care we provide in Finchley

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 Finchley area. Find out more about these two types of home care below.

Hourly care in Finchley

tips-and-visitstips-and-visitsIf you or your loved one requires assistance with various tasks like cleaning, laundry or meal preparation, our hourly care services could be the perfect solution. There are additional options available with hourly care, such as offering a personal aid with bathing, toileting and dressing. Our home care grants you the freedom to live life on your own terms whilst keeping your independence.

In Finchley, our carers can pop in to visit you for as little as one-hour a day spread across three days depending on your care needs. An example of the assistance you could require is help with typical day-to-day tasks such as collecting food from your local grocery store, or picking up medication from the pharmacy. It could also be to have a companion to visit the local areas such as Victoria Park. Flexibility is our priority when selecting our carers to meet your specific needs. We ensure that they are selected local to your areas so that they are familiar with the surroundings and places of interest.

We understand the importance of maintaining independence for you or your loved one. Therefore, we provide the necessary support to help you to lead the life you desire. Our adaptable approach allows us to modify your care plan accordingly if your needs change.

Live-in care in Finchley

If you or a family member requires complex care needs, our live-in care services could be the right service for you. This involves our carers moving into your home, and ensuring that round-the-clock care is delivered. That way care is available whenever you need it.

Our aim is to prioritise matching our clients with live-in carers who are best suited to provide optimal care. This is based on a number of factors, such as the carer’s experience with particular health conditions, as well as their personality, preferences and interests to ensure the perfect match is made for you or your loved one. These efforts work towards providing the best quality of care for you or your family member.

Opting for our live-in care services in Finchley means that you won’t have to move into a care home and can still be surrounded by familiar faces and surroundings, at home. If you or your family member is dealing with complex needs such as dementia or multiple sclerosis and require additional care, we offer nurse-led care and expert advice from our Occupational Therapist, Jackie Cooper and Consultant Admiral Nurse, Jane Pritchard at a competitive price.

Why choose home care from The Good Care Group?

We believe that there is nowhere better to be than in your own home, which is why we are dedicated to providing the very best home care across England and Scotland.

Jessica Monaghan

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.
