We provide flexible care packages which are reviewed on a regular basis ranging from 45 minutes a day to 24 hour live in care.

Care at Home a viable alternative to a Care Home
Since the pandemic many older people are looking to remain at home with care and support in place as an alternative to residential or nursing care.
A personalised and holistic care plan
Our Service Manager Brinda, will work with you and your family and any professionals involved in your care, to ensure your detailed care plan meets all your needs. Your care plan will be reviewed on a regular basis to ensure any changes to your health and wellbeing are reflected in the support you receive.
Remaining in a familiar environment surrounded by your personal belongings
Most people prefer to stay at home within their community where family and friends can visit as they wish. By having care at home, we can help you to remain as independent for as long as possible.
One to one care with a carer who focuses only on you and your needs
The County Care carers are chosen for their dedication and kindness and all have been well trained before starting work. Your carer will focus on you and will provide the best care they can to meet your needs.

A diagnosis of dementia can be devastating for a family but at County Care we have a Team of experienced carers trained in providing dementia care for older people living at home. Our carers understand dementia and will treat you or your loved one with respect and dignity.
Live in Care
Our live in care service offers you the opportunity to keep your loved ones at home for as long as possible . A professionally trained live in carer will live with you in your own home available to provide round the clock one to one care and support whenever you need it. Live in care is a fantastic and safe alternative to residential care with no disruption to your routine allowing you to stay close to friends and pets whilst being supported in a familiar environment.
You can have a live in carer for as long as you like, whether it’s two weeks, a month or even just a respite break to cover whilst the family carer is on holiday.
Hospital to Home Care
County Care offers specialist assistance when returning home from hospital following an illness or injury, short or long term. We recognise that being hospitalised can take its toll both physically and psychologically and you may need ongoing monitoring and care.
We have an experienced team of Carers and Managers who can provide safe and effective support during this time. By working closely with the hospital medical team , the community nurse , occupational therapists and physiotherapists we can agree a detailed care plan working towards recovery and regaining strength whilst reducing the risk of repeat injury and readmission to hospital.
Complex care is for anyone living with a long term progressive illness or a condition or injury which requires specialist care. At County Care we have a team of experienced carers who support children and adults with complex health needs including muscular dystrophy, parkinson’s, stroke, motor neurone disease, diabetes , epilepsy, physical disabilities and head injury.
Many primary carers take pride in looking after a loved one but without support providing care on a full time basis can be over whelming and lonely. Having respite care allows the primary carer to take a break, to ‘recharge their batteries’ whilst the person they care for is looked after by someone else.
Palliative and End of Life Care
The County Care palliative and end of life care service supports those with a terminal illness or condition that has become advanced, enabling the patient to remain within the comfort of their own home. By working closely with the local community nursing team, GP’s, hospital discharge team, pharmacists and local hospice we can provide a holistic service and one to one support from compassionate and trained carers who are experienced in palliative and end of life care.
At this very difficult time we fully recognise the importance of dignity and privacy. Our experienced care team will aim to provide practical and emotional comfort and support to the whole family. We will work in partnership with your GP , the local hospice team and community nurses to provide compassionate care at home keeping your loved one as comfortable and peaceful as possible. Whether by relieving pain or any other distressing symptoms, the carers will approach our patients with the utmost dedication, kindness and respect.
