Here at Guardian Carers, our London care services are tailored specifically to you and your individual requirements. Your personalised carer can help you with almost anything from personal care and wellbeing to household chores or simply there to exchange stories over a cup of tea!

Being in the care industry for over 14 years, we understand that every individual is unique and requires different levels of support, which is why we have available a range of different types of care packages. We are able to offer you care in the form of Full Time or Part Time and either as Live In or Live Out. Live-In care, is the most comprehensive home care as should you need, care can be offered as round the clock, 24-hour care 7 days a week. Typically live-in care is the step before entering into a care or residential home. We also provide Housekeeper Carers who do a mixture of both household chores and personal care or Companion Housekeepers who are there to share each other’s stories over a cup of tea or accompany you to events.

Dealing with an illness can be extremely overwhelming and unsettling and we believe there is no place like home when recovering or going through life-altering changes. We can provide you with carers with medical training and nursing qualifications to ensure you are able to receive the right support whilst remaining in your home.
