What Is Personal Care?

As people get older, we all need a helping hand from time to time with the daily routine. Personal care is commonly associated with personal hygiene and getting dressed or undressed.

With personal care, you’re able to live the way you want, in your own home. With support from experienced carers, you don’t have to compromise your independence. Unlike in care homes for the elderly, you have one-to-one support from a private home carer focused on helping you enjoy life the way you want.

Personal care is particularly great for people who don’t want disruption in their life. There’s no need to move or get used to new places and faces. People with dementia benefit from homecare and remaining in the familiar surroundings of their own home. Safe, comfortable and well looked after by one-to-one support.

How does personal care work?

Personal care is tailored to your needs. Whether you like to get up early, have a lie-in, take care of your personal care needs before or after breakfast, your personal care assistant will adjust to your routine.

With a personal care assistant visiting regularly, you’ll have the reassurance of receiving one-to-one care in your own home. Our personal carers support your needs as they change.

Professional care workers always respect your dignity at all times. And because you choose the same people to help, they’ll get to know how you like things done, so everything is just right!

We help families across Greater Manchester find the best elderly carer for their unique needs. All carers have had their qualifications and criminal record checked. You don’t have to worry about doing it yourself. And you can get the support you need within days.

They earn more than they would do elsewhere. Carers also receive free training to help them keep on top of the best standards of care.

Holm Care is not an agency.

That means we don’t charge you the same rates care agencies do. Not only do you save money, but we use our years of experience to make sure only the best carers are available on Holm.
