Personal Care in Kirklees
Personal Care and maintaining dignity is at the forefront of what we believe in. We understand that it’s difficult to accept that support can be needed to maintain health and well-being. Allowing a carer to assist with intimate care may feel undignified or embarrassing.
Our carers are highly trained to understand and empathise with these issues. Using clever, tried and tested techniques we ensure dignity is preserved throughout each visit.

As with all our care plans, every plan and strategy is unique and tailored for each individual. Working around our clients routines, we’re able to support them in personal care, following their schedule, letting them live the way they want.
By getting to know our clients as a person and understanding preferences we’re able to create a care plan around their likes and dislikes, hygiene and beauty products. Most importantly, we work tirelessly to make sure our clients are comfortable with the care we provide.
All of our carers are trained to provide personal care in a dignified, discreet manor that’s respectful of personal boundaries. Undertaking regular continued training support is key for our care support workers to offer personal care while maintaining dignity. Understanding when to give our clients space to carry out certain aspects of personal care promotes independence and dignity.
It’s important that when our carers are providing personal hygiene care that they deliver it to make the client comfortable. Our trained carers will work with the client to grow a long term relationship that can help often help promote dignity and independence at home.
