Our One-to-One In Home Care Services Include:

We have a wide range of home care services available to support independent living. From Companionship Care Services to specialist care such as Alzheimer's care, helping people with dementia or other health conditions, we can provide the care you need when you need it.

Our options are either hourly visiting care where a Care Pro will visit the home for an hour (or however long required) or a live-in carer that resides in your home and works the hours agreed when you need to support the most. 

Home care and live-in care are the safest alternatives to care and allow you to remain at home without the need to move into a residential care facility.

How to Get Started - We Care from the moment you get in touch

Once you have contacted Home Instead Reading, we will carry out a care assessment, talk about the best care options available and provide you with the cost of care based on the type of care you require.

We aim to look at what is best for you, which is why all of our care packages are bespoke and based on individual care needs and requirements.

You will be assigned a care manager who will look after you from the moment you get in touch. Once we understand your situation, health condition, needs, and requirements, a Care Pro will be carefully selected based on that information.

We have a dedicated team who want to make a real difference in people’s daily life and will go above and beyond to ensure that happens.

I have praised the care of all those you allocate to me, except one. Elaine is cool, calm and industrious. She is forward thinking and practical, quietly preparing the next move. I rarely have to remind her what the next step is. Thanks Elaine, and thanks Home Instead ’’

How to age well

Growing old can bring challenges, both for the person who’s ageing and for their family. It can be frustrating for our loved ones because they can’t do everything they used to and feel like they’re losing their independence. At the same time, it might be worrying for their family as they might not be able to be there whenever their loved ones need them.
