Expanding our services

We keep under review the range of services we provide and this may change in the light of variations in levels of needs, changes in the practice of local author

1. Phone our office on 01423 538886 or email us at suejudge@harrogatecareathome.co.ukities and other social policy developments.
Along with the increase in palliative care being provided, we now offer a ‘sleep-in’ service. This can be particularly beneficial during a period of convalescence or to help cope with hospital discharge.
Our promise to be as flexible as possible has led us to take pets to the vet, to organize plumbers and decorators and to fulfill a dream of visiting Ripon cathedral again. Sometimes the requests are unusual, and outside our normal working practice, but we will always do our best to help.
You can arrange care in 4 easy steps:

2. Attend an informal meeting where we can discuss your care requirements.

3. We will visit you in your home to share our suggestions for a care package that would be tailored to your individual needs.

4. We prepare a written proposal that clearly outlines your proposed Care Plan and includes costs, terms and conditions, and a starting date. At this point you can decide whether or not to use our services.
