Visiting care in Havant to suit your routine
Our caregivers always put your wellbeing first. Whether you’re looking for 30 minutes a week or overnight stays, our aim is to ensure you’re comfortable in your own home and that you remain independent.
Visiting care can cover a whole host of areas, from personal care to help with household duties. Our Havant carers can assist you with:
- Mobility support – helping you mobilise with walking aids and hoists.
We’re also here to help you with local community visits.
- Medication administration – ensuring your medication is taken on time and you’re safe when swallowing pills.
- Household duties – living in a clean and risk-free environment is important. Our carers will help with cleaning, cooking and laundry.
- Personal care – helping you bathe and dress, while giving you privacy and space.
The extraordinary lengths that you and your fellow management staff/carers went to to make their final days as comfortable as possible, and to ensure that I had ample support at a difficult time, is something that I will never forget. Many thanks to all of you for your wonderful care and support.

One-to-one dementia care from our specialists
You or your loved one might be prone to moments of disorientation or might forget to take prescribed medication. We appreciate finding the right level of trustworthy care can be difficult.
As a dementia care specialist, we’ve been supporting people with different forms of the condition for over 30 years and understand the need for consistency in dementia care. Our flexible approach means that we can alter care plans as and when required, giving you peace of mind throughout the process.
Making a positive and significant difference to the sometimes very challenging lives of people, is frankly what this job is all about. Knowing that I’ve fully achieved that is hugely rewarding.

Complex care supported by a clinical nurse
Complex conditions and injuries, such as an acquired brain injury or multiple sclerosis, often require specialist support. Although, that doesn’t mean you need to move into a nursing home or hospice.
Our Havant branch can support you with:
- Tracheostomy care
- Toileting care – including stoma and catheter care
- PEG feeding
- Ventilation and suctioning care
With our in-house clinical nurses, we can produce a care plan built around you and your needs. Preserving your independence is important to us, that’s why our carers will do everything they can to support the lifestyle you lead.
Throughout our award-winning training programme, all carers are taught how to use mobility aids, including hoists and how to tend to stomas and catheters, making your life comfortable and worry-free.Request a callback Email us
Respite care from the Havant Branch
Delivered over a short-term period, respite care allows those caring for loved ones to take some time for themselves and recharge their batteries.
It’s understandable that you’ll be worried about leaving care to someone unfamiliar, but our Havant carers will make sure your usual routines are followed closely, ensuring your loved one receives a consistent level of care whilst remaining in their home.
Respite care is often used for several reasons, such as family emergencies, impromptu illness or support when you’re returning home from hospital stays. Whether it’s a couple of days or a few weeks, respite care is always carried out on your terms.
Elderly care for you or your loved ones
You might just need a simple reminder to take your medication, or even a helping hand in the kitchen at breakfast, whatever your needs, preserving your independence is our main priority.
We understand introducing someone new to your home can be difficult, but elderly care is a great way to gain support, as regular and as intense as you need. It’s also great peace of mind for you friends and family.
Domiciliary care in Havant
