Inspiration comes in different guises and for us, Co-Founders of Home Help Me Care this has come from our own grannies. For Diane, it was her hula hooping granny who still loved to dance away aged 80 and for Rickie it was her much loved and outspoken granny.

We think each and every older person deserves to live with dignity and respect. We work alongside families to ensure a sustainable care package is created for their loved one. To support this we have created a niche team of carers and companions who are not only fully trained but full of personality.

People are at the core of what we do. Recruiting in the sector is difficult, and we won’t compromise on our standards. Once we recruit team members, we offer training above and beyond the minimum standards for care. We treat our team members with the respect they deserve and in turn they are loyal to us and our clients
