Established in 1984, Caring Companions (UK) Ltd has been providing quality bespoke care at home to the elderly and young adults nationwide for over 30 years. The experience we’ve gained over the decades enables us to provide care for a wide range of needs with particular expertise in cases of Alzheimer’s and other dementias. Our service is the alternative to residential care homes, the alternative we believe offers a greater quality of life.
A family firm, we guarantee that your calls or emails will only be answered by our small team. A team who care deeply about providing you and your loved ones with a high quality service. This continuity of communication means that you will always be talking with someone who knows and understands your individual needs.
We are proud to provide experienced and qualified Companion/Carers, many of whom have been working with Caring Companions (UK) Ltd for many years.
Every Companion/Carer is subject to the highest vetting and checking procedures. We guarantee that they will have Enhanced Disclosure through the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) as well as having up to four references thoroughly checked and investigated. In addition, all Companion/Carers have, or are in the process of gaining certification in Manual Handling of People, First Aid, Food Preparation and Hygiene, Understanding Medication and Safeguarding Vulnerable Adults.
Most companion/carers also have NVQ level 2 or 3 qualification in Care or Health and Social Care (Adult).
For long term care needs our proven ‘Rota System’ allows the client to receive the best one-to-one care, 24 hours a day seven days a week, from live-in Companion/Carers who they know and trust.
Meet the team
Sheena started the agency in 1984 after visiting a residential home and realising that she would prefer to stay in her own home should she ever be unable to look after herself. Always full of entrepreneurial spirit and now with the conviction that many would share her feelings, Sheena started our Agency which has now helped hundreds of people maintain their independence, security and happiness in their own home for nearly 40 years.
As Sheena’s son, Gareth grew up around the agency and joined officially in 2014. Prior to joining, Gareth enjoyed working in sectors such as Creative Technologies and Professional Sales. Gareth brings with him a BA (Hons), Level 5 Diploma in Leadership for Health & Social Care Services and a Level 5 Professional Diploma in Management Studies.
