Personal Home Care Visits

Kingsway CareGivers

During personal care visits, we will make sure you have healthy food and drink available and that any prescribed medications have been taken. We can also check to see if you need any other help around the house such as hanging out the laundry, changing a lightbulb, or help with technology.

Just ask if you need help with something. Did you know we provide a host of home services so that you can continue to enjoy living at home.

Peace of mind

The OpenPASS App has proved invaluable for friends and family who live far away from their loved ones in Brighton & Hove. Everyone can have peace of mind that Kingsway CareGivers attend visits at the right time, complete the correct activities, and administer prescribed medication. Even if you live close by, you’ll find it useful to stay updated without having to phone your loved one daily to check if they have taken their meds or how they slept the night before.

The Kingsway Care hands-on management team is always available and will check in with you to discuss your care plan regularly. If you have any concerns, let us know and we will make changes as necessary.

“From my first contact with Kingsway last summer when my dad was in hospital, I have been nothing but impressed with the care and professionalism of the Kingsway Care team. The support the Kingsway caregivers have given my elderly father since he was discharged from hospital has been consistently excellent. Nothing is too much trouble, the caregivers are punctual, professional, friendly and caring and I know my dad looks forward to their visits.
 
From my professional role I am aware that recruiting and retaining excellent carers is really challenging, but Kingsway seem to excel with their recruitment. Many organisations say they work in a client-centred way but in my experience, few actually consistently deliver regarding this. In my view the Kingsway team absolutely do, and right from the point of initial assessment onwards, this has been so clear to see. I cannot recommend the Kingsway Care team highly enough.”
