Global Care makes live-in care easily accessible and stress-free, while your relative can continue doing what they love.
Live-in care is the perfect solution for those who want consistent, quality care support. You get 24/7 care, often costing less than somebody coming round to look after your relative a couple of times a day. The whole experience provides security and independence for your loved ones and peace of mind for you.
97% of people do not want to go into a care home, but many of them are not aware there is an alternative.
Global Care is that alternative, providing all of the benefits of residential care with few of the downsides. Whilst remaining in their own home, your relative not only benefits from being in their own community with their friends but will receive one-to-one care and companionship as and when it’s required.
Global Care costs less and pays your carer more than other providers, and is often far less expensive than a care home. Paying for care, of any sort can seem daunting. That’s where we can help. Whether you are looking to understand more about funding from the council, or are keen to understand more about the various options open to you, our advisors are on hand to help.
It is the matching process, that sets us apart. Each time we find care for somebody, we scour our pool of hundreds of carers to ensure that we can find an individual who not only has the required skills but also will be a good personality match. It is because we do this that so many customers stay with us for years.
The upheaval of having to move to a care home would mean giving up not just independence, but also their choice of entertainment options, animal companions, social community, and even culinary preferences. With a full-time carer, this doesn’t need to be the case.
We are incredibly thorough in selecting our carers, doing full background checks and putting them through a rigorous interview and training process. Only 34% of applicants end up getting a job with Global Care.
It is important that our carers are qualified to deal with a range of conditions to cater to the needs of the elderly. However, they also need to have softer skills such as empathy and compassion. We also understand how important it is that our carers are there for your loved ones.
At Global Care, our domiciliary care service means you can stay in the comfort of your own home, while our team of carers will support you with personal care like bathing and dressing, reminding you to take your medication, our simply helping you out with odd jobs around the house. They can also take you to the hospital and medical appointments, pop to the shops, cook you dinner – and even remember to feed and walk your pets!
All our carers have not one, but two rigorous interviews. They will have undergone psychological testing to make sure they have the right temperament for the job and we always ask for – and talk to – at least two referees. We also ensure all our carers have completed a Disclosure and Barring Service check. We are proud of our team of carers.
