A little help makes a big difference

Our adult care flexible and focused entirely on your or your loved one’s needs.

Caremark home care provides ongoing personal support and assistance for adults in the comfort of their own home as often as it is needed. This could be anything from short daily visits through to 24-hour live-in support.

Our fully trained care assistants will work with you or your loved one to help make life that little bit easier, enabling you/them to live as independently as possible at home. We carry out more challenging tasks and assist with those that might require extra support. We offer a full spectrum of care to meet your or your family member’s individual needs.

Support that is tailored to your or your loved one’s needs

How to find out more about our adult care services

What kind of care do we provide for adults?

Our support can range from daily visits to a week-long respite service or 24-hour live-in support. Whatever your or your family member’s needs are, we can be totally flexible, stepping up our support, putting it on hold, or scaling it back as and if required.

Why might you or your family member need help at home?

There are many possible reasons for needing help and support in your own home as an adult. Perhaps you’ve had a long-term illness that makes it difficult for you to manage alone on an ongoing basis; perhaps you are recovering from an injury and need help for a month or so; or maybe you have a disability that makes everyday tasks tricky at times?

Ensuring your or your loved one’s needs are met

To ensure we meet you or your loved one’s needs we work with you/them to devise a personalised support plan. This is approved before we commence and is regularly updated as needs change. We take into account input from family and any healthcare professionals working with you or your friend or relative.

Before we assign you or your loved one a carer we will get an understanding of your/their interests and pastimes so that we can match our carers for the best possible social interaction and friendship.

At all times, wherever possible, we do our best to encourage and support our client’s independence, helping with tasks rather than taking over. We see this as a crucial element in supporting our clients to feel fulfilled, happy, confident, resilient, and self-reliant.

How we can help

Here are some typical situations in which we can help you or your friend or relative with care at home:

  • Support with household tasks
  • companionship and encouragement with social activities
  • help with daily routines
  • running errands such as collecting prescriptions and pensions

“I would like to express my sincere thanks to the team; our care assistants have regularly shown exceptional levels of care, patience and support for my dad over the last few months. You all have an extremely difficult job, yet you arrive in a positive frame of mind and complete your tasks with care and respect for my dad at all times. Without your care, his quality of life would have been much poorer and he would have suffered much more than he has. At all times you have been attentive to his needs and ensured that he received the highest level of care possible. I would recommend you highly to anyone who asked me for feedback.”

Relative of a client, Caremark Bromley

Overcoming isolation and loneliness

If you or your loved one has problems getting around it can understandably lead to feelings of isolation and loneliness. This can become a vicious cycle, with leaving the house becoming a huge mountain to climb. As our carers actively encourage and facilitate social activities, like getting out and about in the local community and pursuing hobbies, we find our clients becoming happier and more confident. Our input can have a huge effect, improving mental health and generally making life more enjoyable.

Maintaining dignity and independence

Perhaps you or your loved one is finding getting to the shops difficult and maintaining a healthy diet almost impossible. With a carer buying the ingredients and helping with cooking healthy eating becomes all the more attainable. If your loved one has a physical disability or one that is deteriorating, perhaps, but they insist on carrying on doing the household maintenance tasks it is often a worry that they may hurt or overexert themselves. We can step in and assist while ensuring they maintain their dignity and sense of independence - something that is often so important for keeping them going.
Receiving care in familiar surroundings, maintain independence and having complete control over day-to-day decisions can be truly empowering.

Care packages for adults

We can provide bespoke adult care with all our short or long-term home care services. Depending on your or your loved one’s needs we can combine our adult care with any of the below services and because we can be flexible you or your friend or relative can choose the level of support for when it is needed most.

  • Live-in care: ongoing daily and nighttime support in your or your friend or relative's own home. The carer often becomes a great companion or friend. Read more about Live-in care here.

“Caremark came to us after my mother came out of hospital. The staff were excellent, nothing was too much trouble. If I called for anything, they were always very prompt at actioning things. My mother loves the staff coming in to see her.”

Adult care costs and funding

The cost of adult care varies depending on the services required. For further information and to receive a personalised quote, please get in touch with the team at your local office by filling out the form below.

In a few circumstances adult care can be funded. It’s a good idea to talk to your local council to see if you might be entitled to financial support with adult care.

Arranging a carer's assessment

Arranged through your local council, acarer’s assessment is designed to see what might help make your life (caring for your loved one) easier. It’s a chance to discuss your needs with your council so they can decide how best to support you. If they feel you need support they’ll work with you to put together a care plan, which might include using respite services. Your loved one should also have a needs assessment (organised through their local council) so extra support can be arranged if appropriate.

Financial assessment

If you or your loved one are found to need support, your local council will carry out a financial assessment to discover what you can afford to pay. If you are eligible for financial support to pay for adult care, your local council can arrange these services for you or you can choose to receive direct payments and arrange adult care privately.

Direct payments

Caremark can accept direct payments for adult care. Please contact your local office for further information about how this works.

Funding from charities and funds

There are a few grants, funds and charities that may be able to help with funding to pay for adult care. Click here to find out more.

No hidden fees

We aim to be upfront with you about our fees and leave nothing hidden so you or your loved one know what you’re paying for in advance, before you agree to it. Please don’t hesitate to contact your local office by filling out the form below for further information and an exact quote or to find out more about your options.
