The Anglian Care Promise

It is hard when deciding on a care company to look after our advocate or loved one and it is not one we take lightly.

Anglian Care was founded in 2008 as our Founder Des wanted to ensure that his grandmother was looked after by caring, professional and dedicated carers. After founding Anglian Care his mission was to give ‘peace of mind’.

With over 10 years of experience we have learnt what the word ‘care’ truly means. 

Our carers are special people, not everyone can become a carer. Ensuring our care values are at a heart of everything we do, our best practice is making you happy which makes us happy. 

We want to give you the knowledge that our loved one is safe, happy and well looked after, so you can ho back to popping in for a cup of tea and spending some quality time together, knowing the rest is taken care of. 

Thank You! Care Workers!

We also have our Carer of the Year Award. All of our team nominate a person they feel has provided quality, compassionate care throughout the year.

What does personal care include?

Personal care, sometimes known as domiciliary care, encompasses an extensive range of services aimed at supporting individuals in carrying out their daily tasks. This support can vary greatly depending on individual needs, but typically includes aid with personal hygiene practices, such as bathing, grooming, and toileting. Other areas might involve assistance with eating, mobility, medication management, and even providing companionship. But it’s not just about the basics. Personal care providers also understand the importance of emotional wellbeing, offering a friendly face and understanding to foster a trusting and comfortable relationship.

How can personal care support people at home?

Personal care services are carefully designed to offer necessary support that enables individuals to maintain their routine and lifestyle right in the comfort of their own homes. The level of support is tailored to each individual’s unique needs and wishes, facilitating an environment where they can live independently, yet securely, with dignity and respect. So, whether it’s help with meal preparation, maintaining a clean home, or managing health-related tasks, personal care is there to ensure daily life runs as smoothly as possible.

How is personal care tailored to individual needs?

Every person is unique, and so are their care needs. A reputable care provider will conduct a thorough and holistic assessment to gain a complete understanding of the person’s needs, preferences, daily routines, and lifestyle. This information forms the basis of a personalised care plan that accurately reflects the level and type of support required. This might range from basic help with household chores to more comprehensive and complex health-related care. The goal is to provide care that is as unique as the individual receiving it.

Are personal care providers trained?

Absolutely. Personal care providers are not just trained; they are highly skilled professionals. They undergo rigorous training covering a wide range of necessary care skills, from basic first aid to more specialised areas like dementia care. This ensures they are equipped to provide the highest standard of care and support. In addition, providers often have access to ongoing professional development, ensuring their skills and knowledge stay up to date with the latest best practices.

Can personal care services be provided on a flexible schedule?

Personal care services are all about meeting the individual’s needs, and this includes scheduling. Services can be arranged on a flexible schedule that aligns with the individual’s lifestyle and preferences. This could range from just a few hours of care a week to full-time live-in care, depending on the level of support the individual requires. The aim is to provide care that not only meets the person’s needs but also works around their lifestyle.

What if my care needs change?

Health and personal circumstances can change, and it’s important that the care provided reflects this. We will regularly review care plans and adjust it as necessary to reflect any changes in your health or personal circumstances. This ensures that you continue to receive the appropriate level of care as your needs evolve. Whether it’s an increase in the number of care visits, alterations in the type of care needed, or even temporary changes, your care provider will work with you to ensure your plan is adjusted accordingly
