Personal Assistants

Personal Assistants can help individuals live independently at home. Fully regulated by the Care Inspectorate, our Personal Assistants are there to ensure that support is offered by identifying how it is needed and when it is needed most. It is about having control of your own life and at your pace so at Care in Hand, we help individuals achieve exactly this. 

Hourly domiciliary home care is a less intensive service, designed to be flexible to the needs of individuals and help them stay in the comfort of their own homes. 

Personal Assistant services can include: 

  • Personal care including feeding, bathing and toileting 
  • Help with taking food and medication  
  • Errands including shopping  
  • Domestic chores like meal preparation, cooking, cleaning  
  • Supporting an individual in their chosen activity i.e., going for a walk or meeting friends  
  • Generally assisting with the individuals’ comfort and wellbeing  

Arranging a Personal Assistant

To begin with, we work with families and care managers to assess the level of need for each individual. This is to ensure that we deliver the right care to enable independence for as long as possible. The initial assessment allows us to determine the level of care required with an individual’s input throughout the assessment process. The level of care is flexible and can change depending on the assessed level of need of our clients.  

At Care in Hand, we support independent living. Our Personal Assistant and care packages are tailored specifically to an individual’s culture, beliefs, aspirations whereby we promote positive wellbeing at all times.  

All of our Care in Hand carers are fully Disclosure Barring Service (DBS) checked, trained to the highest levels and with robust processes in place, carry identification to guarantee the safety of our end users.
