Growing old can be a difficult time for both the person getting older and their family who are seeing them change. It can be challenging to find that you’re no longer able to do the things you used to enjoy. If you experience deteriorating physical or mental health it can also be isolating. You may find it more difficult to socialise with family and friends and you might struggle to get out of the house as much as you used to.

At Premier Care we have been providing care in the community for over 20 years and we have a keen understanding of what people are going through as they or their family ages. We are committed to support people in the community through difficulties around ageing and deteriorating conditions, as well as their friends and families. We know what good care can do to help people maintain independence and enjoy a happy life in your own home.

Care can often be a complex or difficult topic of conversation and it can sometimes be difficult to find simple help to navigate it. Below we have put together some guides to help you, whether you’re just starting on a care journey, or if you’re looking for more information. If you have any further questions, don’t hesitate to contact our Support Team on 0800 368 9766, available 6am-11pm 7 days a week.

Frequently asked questions

Does having home care result in a loss of independence?

No. Our belief is that independence is being in control of your decisions.

What is the process of finding a carer?

We make the process of finding a carer very simple, give us a call and we’ll conduct a brief phone discussion to understand your needs.

Our team continuously screens carers.
