What makes our Carers special?
We believe our carers are modern day heroes. They are compassionate, dedicated and giving, chosen for their abilities to make a real difference in the world.
Ultimately, at hometouch our carers need to pass the most important test of all- would we wish for them to care for our own family? Only if the answer is yes will they become a hometouch carer.
We work hard to ensure your carer is entirely suited to your loved one’s circumstances and personality.
We also know that conversation is fundamental to caring, which is why all our carers are fluent in English and have a warm, friendly personality. Sometimes just a sweet cup of tea and a good chat can make all the difference.
