At Home Care Preferred we pay enormous importance to the quality of the people we recruit.
Our attention focuses on bringing together the best possible team, people who share our passion for care and who regard their time at work as a vocation not just a job. We provide excellent, on-going training for all our team members. Training includes first aid, manual handling, personal care, food safety and hygiene, customer care, health & safety, as well as more specialised training that will assist our team with care and support for people with conditions such as dementia and learning disabilities.
The result of our vigorous recruitment and support is that we have some of the best support assistants to be found.
Home Care Preferred support assistants make a real difference to our clients’ lives. They understand our ethos of care and desire for excellence and they make this show in their day to day support of those they help. We believe we have created a culture that sets us ahead from many of our competitors.
All of our team are employed directly by Home Care Preferred. We take great effort to match the right support assistant with each client. We look at the individual requirements of each person and match them to a team member who has the appropriate skills and the most suitable personality.
All our team are carefully vetted and subject to UK Enhanced DBS (Disclosure Barring Service) checks. This is a government database holding details of anyone with a criminal record. We also obtain at least two references before anyone starts working for Home Care Preferred.

“My parents are really delighted with the care and assistance that the carer provides to them. He always arrives promptly and my dad who is 91 is so grateful for help washing and dressing, it makes him much less tired and able to cope and enjoy his day. The carer is very kind, patient and aware of both my parent’s physical capacities. He is also excellent company and is just a pleasure. The carer organises my father’s medication, gives it to him, puts in his hearing aids, helps wash and dress him and gives him breakfast, He recognises my father’s need for engagement and they have good chats. I feel my parents are in the best and safest hands and that is all you can ask for.”
