Hourly Care

Domiciliary Care and Hourly In Home Care Services

You’re independent. You enjoy your hobbies and love getting out and about. However, either through ill health or the passing of time, as you get older sometimes a little help round the house is needed.

That’s why our Hourly Care package is the most popular among our clients.

Hourly care makes up over 90% of our work and provides reassurance from as little as 30-60 minutes per day.

What is Hourly Care?

Domiciliary Care, in the form of Hourly Care allows you to receive help every day, without the need of a full-time, live-in carer. This is perfect if you wish to live as independently as possible.

Our hourly care services include:

Your carer will also pick up your pension and prescriptions and keep your administration up to date, including paying bills, etc.

You can request as little or as much care as you want, creating a tailored package to suit your lifestyle.

What are the benefits of hourly care?

Hourly care benefits most people because although you receive help every day, the rest of the time you’re able to carry on with life as usual.

The main benefits of hourly care include:

If you’re getting older and starting to feel you need help with household chores. Or have a physical or mental disability and want a small amount of care every day, our hourly care package will ease your fears.

What can you expect from your carer?


Professionalism, discretion and, just as importantly, warmth and compassion.

All our carers are committed to working in the domiciliary care industry, and we only employ people who we’d feel comfortable looking after our own loved ones – that’s a promise.

All our carers are fully DBS (criminal record) checked before receiving accredited in-house training and once assigned to you, we monitor the care they provide. This means we’ll keep constant contact with you, your loved ones and our carers to ensure they’re delivering the support you require.

And as they work to your personal, daily routine, you’ll continue living your life the way you want it.
