Find a trusted live in carer

by Laura | Tips, Websites

Find trusted help for your elderly loved one to keep their independence at home and improve their quality of life in later years with local carers that can live-in or visit on an hourly rate through HomeTouch.

We think HomeTouch is a great service because it was founded by a former NHS dementia physician who saw first-hand the struggle to find reliable home care. Dr Jamie Wilson understands exactly the needs that both patients and families have and has created a care model that gives back control, offers choice and provides transparency when you need it most.

All of HomeTouch’s carers go through a five-stage interview process, have the necessary references and compliance documents, including a criminal record check, and are constantly reviewed to ensure consistent high standards.

The types of care available include live-in, dementia, elderly, disability, respite, palliative, overnight, post-discharge and post-operative. Pricing is transparent and starts at £10 an hour for hourly care or live-in care from £700 a week.

During a difficult time, HomeTouch makes it easy to find a suitable carer that you are comfortable with. You can browse carers near to you and then either message them directly or speak with the HomeTouch team to arrange a meeting to discuss your needs. Once you have found the ideal carer you’ll be given comprehensive support with contracts, payments and emergency backup.
