If you are in need of personal care, there are several options available to you. Care at home is a popular option for many people, as it gives them access to a high level of personalised care, while enabling them to stay in their own homes.

What is Help with personal care?

Personal care is support that can help elderly or less-able people perform daily tasks, such as washing and bathing, visiting the toilet and cooking meals. There are many benefits of having care and support worker for personal care, the main one being that it enables you to stay within the comfort of your own homes as you age. It’s therefore a great alternative to moving into a care home.


Overcoming difficulties

It can be extremely difficult when you start to become unable to complete certain tasks on your own. Perhaps it has been down to a recent injury, or perhaps it’s just due to the natural ageing process, but, as we age, it becomes increasingly common to need some form of help. Care at home is perhaps the most specialised form of elderly care you can choose, and requires a highly empathetic care approach that is built around trust.

Trust is imperative in a care at home setting. Our care and support workers have been fully vetted and have multiple recommendations for providing high quality care – so that you can rest assured that you or your family member is in the best hands.

Personal Care with Dignity and Discretion

Personal Care covers activities that relate to maintaining personal appearance and hygiene and covers activities such as help with getting dressed, bathing, grooming, toileting and personal hygiene for example.

We understand that requiring personal care can be uncomfortable and therefore, we treat you with sensitivity and respect, prompting independence as much as possible.

Everyone has different needs and we will always create a care plan for you and only you.

Personal Care covers a range of services to include:

  • Bathing and showering
  • Bed baths
  • Dressing and getting ready for the day
  • Getting ready for bed
  • Personal grooming
  • Oral hygiene
  • Personal hygiene
  • Assistance with toileting and incontinence care

Going to the toilet

This is a critical component of a help with personal care. Toileting assistance can vary from simply helping an elderly person transition to the bathroom, or can involve full help with the process. Care and support workers are fully aware of how personal a need this is, and are trained to assist people with the highest level of dignity and empathy.


Dressing and undressing is an essential part of any daily routine, but can become increasingly difficult for elderly or disabled people. Care and support workers can help with morning routines and with getting ready for bed, to prevent safety hazards and avoid difficulties.


Care and support workers are also trained to help their patients with all sorts of grooming needs. People often take great pride in their appearance, and this can severely negatively impact a person if they are unable to perform the grooming tasks they once enjoyed. Care and support workers can help with tasks such as applying make-up, brushing hair and shaving – so that you can feel yourself again.

Bathing and washing

It is imperative to maintain personal hygiene – and age doesn’t need to be a barrier to that. Washing and bathing are everyday tasks that is included in all personal care packages, with the tasks of a carer ranging from supervision in a shower or bath to helping with sponging and soap application. Care and support workers will also help with other personal tasks, such as teeth brushing, applying creams and face washing.

Getting around

Mobility is important to maintain a sense of well-being and fulfilment. A care and support worker’s duties therefore do not stop in the home; they will also be on hand to help with getting out of the house. Whether it’s a visit to the local shops, engaging in light exercise or having a day out to the beach, a care and support worker can help to provide the support needed to make it happen.

The personal carer also helps with mobility inside the home. Tasks such as getting in and out of bed, and moving from room to room, can become difficult as we age. A carer will ensure that you can continue to use your house efficiently without the risk of accidents or injuries.
