Personal Care Assistant

Support with discretion and dignity

Needing help to take care of personal hygiene and grooming can be every bit as emotionally challenging, as it is physically, for both those requiring assistance and the family members there to provide it.

We know how difficult it can be for those needing help to rely on others for support with intimate care. That’s why we make a special effort to connect them with a personal care assistant they feel comfortable with. Our support workers are mindful to treat every person with the dignity and respect they deserve, while maintaining a professional demeanour.

Every personal care assistant is trained in discrete, sympathetic care at a personal level, without the same emotional involvement a relative may have. This distinction can sometimes make it easier for those who may struggle with having loved ones see them in such a vulnerable position.

Personal care services

Our qualified staff are trained to provide a high level of support across a range of personal care needs including:

  • full or standby shower/toilet support
  • dressing/undressing
  • help getting in or out of bed
  • general grooming (shaving, hair styling, makeup, trimming nails)

A personal care assistant will support your loved one with dignity and discretion. Talk to us about how we can help.
