Monthly Memberships

We know that everyone’s situation is different and as a result, your package will be tailored to suit your specific needs and aspirations. Your plan will a simple fixed price each month with no extra charges for weekends or bank holidays. We focus on the overall well-being of the people we support. From our experience, no two days are the same – there may be days where you would like extra support, even if that’s just a chat, but there could also be days where you only briefly need our services.

How we tailor our packages to our customers needs

Elderly woman holding a dog

Ellen was quite reluctant to get support, but her daughters strongly felt she’d benefit from having someone coming in for some companionship, and support with meal planning and shopping. We started with a package of 2 visits each week and shopping, for £340/month.

We give the people we support the flexibility to change their package to suit their changing needs. Ellen was no different, she started to enjoy the company of our Wellbeing Support Workers and asked to increase support to include daily visits to help her get ready for the day, have a shower, and get a good and nutritious breakfast. We visited her 7 days a week, with a new £980/month package.

Alan had a complex medical history and had been diagnosed with dementia. His wife, Karen, was supporting him but she needed daily respite for her own wellbeing. We offered a package with long visits 7 days a week to go for walks along the river, play games, do crafts and to talk about animals and cars, which Alan was very passionate about. His monthly package cost £1385.

After a surgery and a few weeks in hospital, Amanda was very frail, and needed support 3 times a day, 7 days a week. We started supporting her on the day she was discharged from hospital. She needed help to get ready for the day, have breakfast and take her medication. Her medication after hospital was quite complex and our Wellbeing Team helped her sort it out, arranging visits with district nurses and follow-up hospital appointments. Her package costs £2510/month.
