Arranging home care in Fulham
Our friendly and experienced team are here to help you and your loved ones make sense of the options available to you. Call us today we will help you every step of the way.
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 Fulham area. Find out more about these two types of home care below.
Hourly care in Fulham
Hourly care or visiting care is available to anyone who needs help in their home on a regular basis. We can provide this support in the form of help with household chores such as cleaning, meal preparation or even personal help with bathing, showering or hair washing. Our hourly home care package helps you live your life to the fullest whilst still maintaining your independence and personal space when you need it. Our carers can join you on a visit to the local football ground or an art gallery or whatever you choose to do with the time you spend together.
Our professional carers in Fulham can pop in if you need someone to pop to the shops for some essentials or to meet with friends in a local coffee shop. All of our carers are employed from your local community so they know the quickest routes to the nearest chemist or even places of interest.
We know it’s important for you or your loved one to maintain their independence, so our support package enables you or your loved one to live their life the way they wish. As your needs change, so can your care package; they are flexible and can be changed at any time to suit you.
Live-in care in Fulham
We can provide for all needs, even if they are complex. If this is the case, then you or your loved one may prefer our live-in care option. As the name suggests, we can arrange for one of our carers to live with you. Our live-in care option means that one of our experienced carers can live with you and is therefore on hand to provide support 24 hours a day. At The Good Care Group, we match live-in carers to our clients so that you receive the best possible care as and when you need it. We always choose carers with experience with specific health conditions, but also who is the best match for you or your loved one based on likes, personality and interests. That way, you can be completely confident that the very best care is there.
By choosing live-in care from our professional carers in Fulham, your loved one can stay in their home, surrounded by memories of days gone by, where they feel most comfortable. This removes the stress and emotional upheaval of moving into residential care. If they are living with a complex medical need such as Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, or cancer, or even if both you and your partner need assistance with personal care and mobility, live-in care gives you a much more cost-effective option.
If you or a loved one have a complex medical condition, we can arrange for specialist, nurse-led care to be provided in your own home. Our experienced clinicians oversee this service. All of our professional carers are trained to deliver PEG feeding, insulin administration or stoma care, which will enable you or your loved one to stay safe and well in the home you love, with friends and family close by.
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. As the only live-in care provider to be awarded with an ‘Outstanding’ rating by the CQC, we are incredibly proud to be keeping as many people as possible living in their own home with our exceptional care.
We’re not a care agency, so we employ and train all of our carers to the standards set by the CQC.
With an ‘Outstanding’ rating by the CQC in all five areas, you can have complete trust and faith in our service.

Our Fulham carers are employed from the local area, so you’ll have someone caring for you that has knowledge of your community.
We diligently monitor the outcomes of all of our clients, which significantly helps us to reduce falls, UTIs and hospital admissions.
More prestigious industry awards than any other home care provider for our service, training and culture.

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.
The Good Care Group is a fully-managed home care provider. All of our services are underpinned by stringent guidelines set by our regulators, the Care Quality Commission, and are regularly inspected. Unlike other care agencies in Fulham, we employ and train all of our carers. We are able to take care of all paperwork and Disclosure & Barring Service (DBS) background checks for our carers- something which self-employed carers often have to manage themselves if they work for a care agency. We also offer a range of staff benefits in recognition of the good teamwork and service provided by all of our carers at The Good Care Group.
Private care in Fulham to support you at home
Our private care enables you or your loved one to receive support at home, without the stress and upheaval of moving into shletered accommodation or a care home. All of our carers are selected from the local area and therefore can provide you with assistance and even companionship on trips to local cafes or places of interest so you have someone to share your experiences with. This way, you can live your life the way you wish.
Unlike other private care agencies in Fulham, we employ and train all of our carers ourselves, so we are able to cover your regular carer if they are away.
Dementia home care for specialised support
At The Good Care Group, we appreciate that nuances of dementia are as individual as the person. All of our care plans are tailor-made to suit you or your loved one; our focus is to promote and nurture independence.
Receiving dementia care at home is a practical, often more preferred, option to moving into a care home. Home care provides your loved one with a personalised care plan that takes into consideration their symptoms, medical requirements and personal choices whilst reducing the stress that often comes when you move away from the comfort and security of your own home. Whether you or a loved one have just been diagnosed with dementia and are coming to terms with it, or if your loved one has advanced Alzheimer’s and needs daily assistance with personal care, our team in Fulham can provide you with all you need to continue living in your own home.
Domiciliary care in Fulham
Domiciliary care, another name for care at home, is the perfect way to live your life with additional help provided by a care team, whilst in your home. Our professional domiciliary carers can assist you or your loved one with chores around the home such as cleaning or cooking. Our domiciliary carers can also help look after your pets, assist you with getting dressed or even washing your hair. These are just some of the tasks our domiciliary carers can do.
Our carers in Fulham can also assist with running errands, shopping or accompanying you to medical appointments, giving you and your loved ones peace of mind that you’ll always have the support you need.
Short-term respite care in Fulham
The need for care can arise at any given time – perhaps after a loved one has sustained a fall and needs extra support at home to help with their recovery, or even if it is you who cares for a loved one and needs a short break for any reason. With respite care from our experienced team in Fulham, we can step in on a short-term basis, so that you are not left without vital assistance at a time when you need it most.
Respite care in Fulham can be provided in a way that takes all of your needs into consideration, via either hourly care or live-in care on a pre-planned basis. Our professional carers can ensure that cover is provided.
Fully-trained carers in Fulham
Around 2% of those who wish to work with us are successful in passing our recruitment process and going on to become fully-fledged carers. With these statistics, you can be sure that only the very best carers are delivering the care you are receiving.
All of our carers undergo a five-day induction programme, which is delivered by our experienced in-house training team. First aid, dementia care, end-of-life care, manual handling and inclusion and diversity training is provided. Refresher training sessions are also available and are held annually. We also have a specialist care team, consisting of our Consultant Admiral Nurse and Occupational Therapist, who oversee and deliver complex care training to our carers that is bespoke to the specific needs of the client. This ensures all needs are fully met that are individual to our clients, giving you and your loved ones peace of mind that you have the best possible care.
Providing a high level of support to both our clients and carers is extremely important to us. Our carers in Fulham meet with their manager on a regular basis and have access to assistance 24 hours a day.
