Our Home Carers are available throughout the UK providing a quality, first class care service for people who need help and assistance in their own home. From simple visits where a little help is required, through to full complex care packages, our carers arrive at pre-arranged times and are provided with the time, training and commitment to care for the person.
We help people who either through illness or injury, require assistance to maintain their well-being, whilst continuing to live in their own home and neighbourhood. The people we help may be young or old. They may require assistance short term following an operation or they may have an illness or injury that may affect the way they live, therefore requiring our care services long term.
Being a national provider and with over 15 years’ experience of providing care services, My Homecare offers a responsive care service for an individuals changing needs. Our increasing network of branches are run by professional and experienced care managers, who are also supported by our head office senior care team.
My Homecare offer an individual tailored package for individuals and families in your local area. Our manager’s care assessment will ensure the care and support plans are person centred around the needs of the service user. Our care teams will always ensure the best possible care services for you or your loved one.
Each office is registered or working towards registration with the Care Quality Commission in England or the Care Inspectorate in Scotland, to ensure continuity and compliance of care across the My Homecare network. The CQC and Care Inspectorate are government bodies who regulate care provided by private care companies, doctors surgeries, hospitals and care homes. Some of our newer branches are seeking registration will offer a reduced number of services, such as domestic, laundry and meal preparation services until such time as they are registered.
My Homecare branches and Partner companies are trained and regulated by My Homecare and use our quality trade mark logo.
Our Carers in every branch are recruited following a stringent selection process. Each must provide their previous work references and will have an enhanced police check (DBS). Carer’s will have undergone / will undergo care training and will be qualified to diploma level. They are fully insured for providing our services.
With our Live in care services there are also a number of trusted self-employed experienced carers we can also introduce to you. We find this increases your choice of carer and we have had a lot of success allocating self-employed carers. My Homecare will only introduce self- employed carers who have again, been fully checked by ourselves and who have appropriate experience, training and insurance. We will allocate and oversee the care they provide ensuring you always receive the support which has been planned.
All of our staff are fully checked, inducted, trained and certificated in accordance with Skills for Care.

Our care group welcomes our newest and experienced investor. We will be working hard over the coming months to provide care and support to people in Bedfordshire who require assistance to remain living in their own home. For any enquiries please contact our head office.
A big thank you to everyone that attended our last Discovery Time session in Hemel Hempstead. These sessions are very useful and allow us to meet a group of interested investors who wish our help to open their care business. Unfortunately we are having to wait until early July until we schedule our next group meeting, due to our commitments with existing branchs. Owing to the success of our business model we have 9 franchises all at key stages in their initial development. For further information on how you can save money, time and open your own branch of My Homecare please contact our registered office for further details
We have the pleasure to announce two new branches of My Homecare. Our Harrow & Hillingdon branches will commence trading in May / June.

Your Care Plan is developed following the Initial Needs Assessment completed by one of our managers and all information held is completely confidential. Care Plans basically explain routine tasks to be undertaken by carers, at the specific times agreed.
Information will be left at your address for both you and your carer, and this includes a Service User Guide, a copy of your Care Plan including associated Risk Assessments, our contact numbers, complaints procedure and other useful information.
The risk assessments are completed to identify any risks that may occur during a visit, to either the carer or the client. Risk assessments are designed to protect people against known dangers not to stop clients doing what they want to do.
Regular reviews of care and support we provide start from day one and will continue throughout your time with My Homecare. We expect to complete a formal face to face review every 3 month as well as making regular telephone quality checks. Our quality assurance policy ensures that you and your loved ones are happy and that we’re doing everything we can to support you.
A copy of our Review Policy detailing how and when we will review your care is available from the office.
If you are not fully satisfied with your carer, we encourage you to inform us through our quality assurance program and complaints policy. Our quality assurance policy ensures that you and your loved ones are happy and that we’re doing everything we can to support you.
If you ever feel you need someone to speak on your behalf, either to ourselves or others providing your care and support, then you can use an advocate. Advocates are people who are independent and could help you to express your views, opinions and wishes, and to obtain impartial advice.
Most people prefer to remain in the privacy and comfort of their own home, but with a level of support of assistance from a carer to help them maintain their independence.
