Caring for someone can be personally rewarding, interesting and financially secure. Growing our carer community is important to us at Hometouch. To find out how you can get involved, go to

Caring for someone can be personally rewarding, interesting and financially secure. For example, 1-3% of people over 65 years old need some kind of daily assistance with things like dressing or meal preparation. Many live in carers can support them in their own home.

But it’s not only the elderly who need care and support, there are also other people for whom having a live-in carer helps to manage their condition while living independently: Young adults with learning disabilities; Young children with complex health conditions or other individuals affected by conditions.

We believe that care is about more than just looking after someone or making sure they have their medication on time. Hometouch’s dementia training program reveals the emotional and physical elements of caring for someone with a disability, illness or condition, in particular dementia.

You’ll learn to support customers and enhance their wellbeing and give them more independence.

Help someone live their life to the full today with Hometouch. The most rewarding aspect of care work is the opportunity to make a difference in someone’s life. Whether you’re working with children/young adults with learning disabilities, helping people manage their condition or providing personal care.

Hometouch specialises in live-in care. We do not offer live out care at this time.
