Hourly Home Care Visits

If you need help for just a few hours each day or a couple of times a week, we can visit you in your home and provide as little or as much support as you need, with the aim of helping you to maintain your independence.

What is hourly home care?

Hourly home care is a service we provide where a carer visits your home for a minimum of two hours on a daily or weekly basis — whatever works best for you and your needs. This flexible level of care works incredibly well with our clients and it’s aimed towards those who need some additional support with day-to-day life. Whether it’s support with household tasks, personal care, medical support or meal prep. Hourly home care allows you to stay in the comfort of your own home whilst receiving regular drop-in help from a carer that you’ll get to know as a friend.

    What do our hourly home care visits involve?

    We take the time to understand exactly what you need help with so that the time we spend with you is time well spent. You’re in control of the visit and we follow your guidance.

    Remaining independent and in your own home means so much, and often, a little help on a regular basis is all you need.

    When you arrange visiting hourly care with us, we will begin with a minimum of a two hour visit. We find that a two hour visit allows your carer time to get to know you, not to rush and give you all the attention and support you require. The two hours can be used for personal care tasks like showering and washing, as well as perhaps preparing lunch or taking you shopping.

    We find that offering a minimum of a 2 hour visit means that we can guarantee consistent care for our client. It also attracts carers who genuinely care about the time they spend with their client and do not want to be rushed.

    Our visiting hourly staff are employed by us and are trained to a high standard.  They also receive ongoing support and supervision from a dedicated Care Manager who will also manage your care and support.

    What are the advantages of hourly home care visits?

    Hourly home care is such a flexible service that looks slightly different to everyone, depending on your unique needs. Here are some of the key benefits:

    • Companionship — our hourly care visits last a minimum of two hours and are with the same carer each time. This enables you to build a strong relationship, giving you meaningful interactions throughout the week.
    • Independence — hourly care is all about helping you to maintain your independence by offering support with household tasks on a daily or weekly basis. You can receive this care with minimal disruption to your daily routine and way of life.
    • Freedom and flexibility — hourly care gives you the freedom to continue doing the things you enjoy, whether that’s seeing friends, going for a walk or popping to the shops. It also works around you, allowing you to choose how little and often you would like your carer to visit. 
    • Peace of mind — you and your loved ones benefit from the peace of mind hourly care brings. You can rest assured that you’re looked after and receiving support, without the stress of moving into a care home.

    Who can benefit from hourly home care visits?

    Many people can benefit from hourly care. If you’re getting older and feel as though you need some extra help with household chores or getting to appointments, then hourly care is the ideal solution. Having an extra helping hand on a daily or weekly basis makes your life a great deal easier. You don’t have to be living alone either, even if you already receive help from a loved one, it can help to take a little bit of work off their hands too with our hourly visits. If you feel as though you need a little extra support, then hourly care is the ideal flexible option.
