Home Care Services

Domiciliary Care

It’s understandable that, whatever their age or ability, most people will want to live independently at home for as long as possible. For those who need a bit of extra support in order to be able to thrive at home, our Aunties and Uncles can provide them with domiciliary care. With a flexible, can do attitude, our service is tailored to your loved one’s needs, whether they need someone to help them look after a pet, extra help with the cleaning, cooking or gardening, doing a bit of shopping, taking them to appointments, or just sitting down with tea and biscuits to watch their favourite TV programme with.

Whether you need domiciliary care and support on a long term or short term basis, you can rest assured that we can provide an Auntie or Uncle who will be best suited to make a real difference.

Our careful selection process ensures that all of our Aunties and Uncles are sympathetic, patient, flexible and have warm, can-do personalities, as well as being fully reference checked. Regardless of their duties, they understand the difference they can make to someone’s life, and aim to make living independently not only possible, but also a great pleasure.

      Home care for the elderly 

      Artisan Aunties provides home care for the elderly and disable that truly makes a difference to people’s lives. Not only do our Aunties and Uncles offer practical support, they also offer emotional support in the form of elderly companionship, always with patience and empathy. We hand pick our staff for their personality, customer service skills and the willingness to go the extra mile for their clients.

      Our aim is to provide someone who will brighten up your loved one’s day. To provide happy times and good memories. As the COVID vaccine is rolled out, our Aunties and Uncles can help support older people as they venture out again. Many have lost confidence during lockdown and will need encouragement and support to help them when it comes to going shopping, meeting friends, using public transport etc.

      It is likely that, over time, an elderly person will gradually need additional support. Our Aunties and Uncles will be more than happy to adapt their skill set accordingly, and we will provide them with training courses on every aspect of home and personal care. By gradually increasing the level of support given by the same Auntie or Uncle, your loved ones can rest assured that the person providing it is someone they know and trust.
