With so many options, how to choose which homecare is best

Are you or a loved one considering homecare services? From homecare and respite care to companionship care – there are so many options available. While all are designed to help keep you safe and happy at home, how do you know which one is best suited to your personal needs, lifestyle and preferences? 

In this blog, we discuss the different services we offer in detail in the hopes that we can help you decide which type of home care in Romford, Clacton on Sea, Colchester and surrounding areas is best for you. 


Also referred to as domiciliary care, homecare is centred around personalised and practical help in the home. It’s the perfect choice for people who value their independence but need an extra hand around the house to keep it in tip-top shape. Our professional carers can help with personal care like washing and dressing and household duties like taking out the bins and cooking nutritious meals. They can even accompany you on trips, outings and holidays. 

Companionship care

No one deserves to feel lonely, no matter their age. But as we grow older, our social circles may naturally become smaller. Changes in physical needs may also prevent us from getting out and about as we used to. These changes can contribute to an increase in isolation. Companionship helps combat loneliness by ensuring you regularly have a friendly face to chat with and a shoulder to lean on. Whether you’re enjoying a cup of tea together, engaging in your favourite hobby or taking a day trip, our compassionate carers are here for you. 

Specialist care

Our specialist care services are available to support people living with a long-term illness or disability. Having complex needs doesn’t mean you shouldn’t be able to live in the comfort of your home. That’s why we come to you. Our expert team is trained to treat a range of specialist conditions and requirements, including dementia care, mental health challenges, stroke recovery and paraplegia. 

Reablement care

If you’ve recently undergone surgery, suffered an injury or are recovering from an illness, reablement care is best for you. Our team is here to support you on your journey to recovery by ensuring your home is as hazard-free as possible and that you have everything you need to feel comfortable. To aid your healing, we’ll work alongside the wider care team of doctors, occupational therapists and physiotherapists. 

Respite care 

Respite care is designed to ensure continuity of care when family caregivers need a break or are going on holiday. Providing temporary care means that your loved one continues to receive the support they need to live well, even when you can’t be there. It also gives family members peace of mind to know that their loved one is in safe and qualified hands during their absence.
