Making the Right Choices

Its a frightening time for anyone who finds they need the service of a homecare provider. Having to deal with all sorts of officials to find out what help is available and how you can access this help. Often times, when a need is identified, an official from Social Services will visit and rather than advise on what help you can get, you end up being told what you need and how you are going cope in the circumstances!

Download our free guide to your options when choosing the right homecare solutions for your and your family.

Your Options
CHOICE - is a word rarely used in these circumstances by anybody who needs the service of a homecare provider, however, with the government initiative on Direct Payments you can CHOOSE who you wish to help with care for you or your loved ones and not be forced to use a service that you have no control over, but still have to pay for!

Yorkshire Homecare Services are a local agency that care about people not profits and can offer a real alternative to anyone who is dissatisfied with their current service or who find they need help at home. As with all homecare providers we are CQC (Care Quality Commission) registered, which means our systems and procedures are regulated, which means our systems and procedures are regulated and inspected regularly to ensure security and safe care are maintained.

We operate 24-hours a day, 7-days a week, 365 Days a year and you speak to the Consultants directly, not an answer machine, or worse, a messaging service. In an emergency you will speak to people who understand and know exactly, your circumstances and requirements.

Clients can be anyone over the age of 18 who lives within the Hull & East Riding area.

Clients could have a wide range of needs and include the elderly, young physically disabled, People with learning disabilities, people with mental health problems and people who have been diagnosed as terminally ill and who wish to remain at home.

Our respite service allows people who are the main carers for family members to have a short break and relax.
