Our elderly home care services

Hourly Daytime Care

Visiting care during the day is perfect for those who  need some extra support to live at home. Our visits start from  two hours or more and this care can happen between 7am and 10pm, seven days a week.

Live-In Care

When the support required exceeds around 6-8 hours per day, our live-in care is a great option. A carer is on-hand to help, day and night.

Overnight Care

Where care is required throughout the night, our overnight Carers can provide a reassuring presence from 10pm to 7am.

Call Out & Emergency Service

Included in our care package  for all clients, we have team members available 24 hours a day via our dedicated call-out phone number. This service provides peace of mind as we will attend to any situation, day or night.

Dementia & Alzheimer’s Care

Our highly trained Bright Carers are experts in caring for people living with Dementia and Alzheimers. Remaining at home, in familiar surroundings with regular routines can reduce stress and anxiety.
