We pride ourselves in providing private home carers to assist adults with genuine personal development, which will enable you to progress towards your well deserved independence. Taking back that control and having your own choice of what support you need and when you need it, can contribute to your person-centred development. Guardian Carers are here to find you the best solution, and provide you with the perfect private carer to assist with your daily routine and tasks that need to be fulfilled. We provide specialised care for people with an array of learning disabilities, including Autism, Cerebral Palsy, Epilepsy or mobility support.

Our expert consultants are always on hand to help you with your search process. We want to ensure that the private carer we provide for you is able to assist your friends or relatives of the individual, and make your life easier. Many of our carers are fully specialised and trained in caring for people with learning disabilities, and regardless of your age or presumed ability, we can tailor your own care package that is designed specifically for your needs and requirements, as well as your morals and interests. We are aware of how overwhelming it could be to care for a loved one who is living with a learning disability, which is why our main priority to relieve you of that pressure and ensure you get the very best private carer to help you.

No matter what type of care you require, Guardian Carers can offer you an array of private care services to suit your needs. We can provide you with Full-Time and Part-Time home carers, as well as Live-In or Live-Out, therefore you can be confident that you will find the right person for the job. Guardian Carers are also able to offer you Respite care or daycare, therefore if you have a current carer who may be on holiday or is not able to care for you on a particular day, then this could be another option for you. All of our carers have a minimum of 3 years experience in the care industry, so you are guaranteed to have someone who will put your health and wellbeing above anything else, and are always focused on achieved positive progress and outcomes.


When we hire our experienced private carers, there are some important qualities we look for in order to fulfil the role to an exceptional standard, especially if they are caring for someone with a learning disability. This is a very important role so it is crucial that we recruit the very best and qualified carers that are suitable for the position. The carer must have experience in order to provide fulfil this role and provide you with additional support if you or a loved one require any needs associated with autism, challenging behaviour, complex health needs or additional disabilities.We strongly believe some of the many aspects a good carer should have is being respectful, patient, reliable and qualified.

All of our specialised carers must be understandable and respectful to you and your needs. You may find yourself not being able to do everything that you used to be capable of doing, and therefore people may start to treat you differently, or at times, can come across as patronising. At Guardian Carers, we ensure that all of our carers will treat you with the respect that you deserve, and also ensure this is maintained throughout your placement.

An exceptional carer is guaranteed to be patient. Particularly if you are suffering from a medical condition, it can be frustrating at times when everyday and easy tasks are taking longer to complete than usual. Therefore it is hugely important that your private carer is patient and calm in any situation that may arise.

At Guardian Carers, we believe that the perfect carer should be reliable. As time goes on, and your age or medical condition can progress, then you may start need to start relying on your carer for more important tasks, such as taking you to your doctor’s appointment, or managing your medication. Your personal, private in-home carer will have to ensure that every duty is completed and they are done in the correct manner, and timely fashion.

Another important quality that carer should have is the ability to be observant. You or your loved one may not notice specific symptoms becoming more and more frequent. However, is it up to your specialised private home carer to notice this such as this, and act accordingly. Along with being observant, it is also important that your carer must be compassionate. If it comes to a time when you or your loved one start to deteriorate, it can be a very emotional and difficult time, but having a carer there to support you and be there to cheer you up on your bad days, is very important.

Our medically specialised private carers are also a source of emotional support and friendship, so no matter what your situation is, or what you and your family are going through, you can have full confidence in knowing that you have someone standing by your side and offering a helping hand.

As you or your loved ones needs can change and evolve over time, the care can also evolve with you. Therefore, while you may have started with someone popping in a few times a week, you may also find that you gradually require more and more help, which could be a sign that you need for a carer who can be with you full time.


At Guardian Carers, we believe that your private carer should contribute to maintaining your quality of life, as we understand that living with a learning disability can cause a few challenges to arise, making it more difficult for you to carry out typical daily tasks and activities. Having a specialised, disability carer to assist you throughout the day can instantly make a positive change and make your life stress-free and comfortable. This could be in the form of assisting with household tasks, or helping with any personal care, providing companionship, or simply encouraging you to live an active and healthy lifestyle. There are a wide range of tasks that a carer can fulfil, your carer does not have to be limited.

All of our carers are highly qualified and trained to care for individuals with complex care needs, which will allow you to have full confidence in your private carer knowing that you have someone with expert knowledge and skills. Your disability carer will have a much deeper understanding of what you are going through, and more importantly, they will know how to care for you in the correct manner and provide essential support.
