First Choice supporting you at home

Our quality homecare team offer flexible support to help you live independently at home. Homecare, or domiciliary care provides assistance with everyday tasks from personal care, cooking and serving meals to home help including general housework: cleaning, laundry, ironing and bed changing.

We offer flexible care plans, providing a few hours a week or daily care; including hospital to home support, or while you recover from an illness. 

Most importantly we also offer friendly companionship and we actively encourage our Service Users  to join local clubs such as day centres, Dementia Cafes and Support Groups, Coffee mornings, The men’s Shed and to join in on any of our Charity events and regular coffee mornings. We believe this has very positive effect on our Service Users mental health and wellbeing.
