Support is just a phone call away

Having the opportunity to speak with someone on the phone, at any time, is paramount to our success in supporting our Professional Carers across the UK.  When you are working remotely as a live-in carer, supporting a vulnerable client, you need to know that help is on hand – when you need it.  Just one of the ways that we provide that help and support is with our On Call team.  We caught up with Linda in our On Call team who explains more about her role: “I Joined the company in February 2019 as a live in Carer then ...

Carer story – Christmas baking with my client

“For me care isn’t just a job. I have worked in hospitals and in the community, but there was never any time that I could really get to know my clients. I decided to become a live-in Professional Carer after I found myself wanting more 1-1 time with the person I was supporting.
