Support for Young Adults


At Guardian Carers, as well as caring for the elderly, we can also provide you with a wide range of private home carers that are specifically trained to care and support young adults, this can involve all aspects of their personal and professional development. Every individual is different, and we understand that as a young adult, you too may be going through a variety of situations. This could include having a medical condition, living with a learning disability, having mobility issues, mental health issues, or you may have just undergone surgery and are in need of post-operative care. Regardless of the type of care a young adult may need, Guardian Carers can provide you with a helping hand if you want to find the perfect home carer, but need some assistance and guidance in doing so.

We believe that every young adult should have the chance to achieve their full potential, that is why Guardian Carers are able to provide a wide range of care services to ensure your needs are fulfilled and you get the right type of care for your situation. We provide Full-Time and Part-Time work, as well as Live-In or Live-Out care. From the very moment you contact us, our expert consultants are able to guide you and tailor your care package to suit your requirements and interests. We want to ensure that every single young person will have the opportunity to discover their goals and feel supported from every angle from an experienced, specialised carer.


Your private home carer can be completely customisable to you depending on your situation, schedule and care needs. Which is why Guardian Carers will be able to find the perfect carer to support the health and wellbeing of a young adult with any complex care needs, this could be the most accommodating care option for any young adult. The added support around their day to day life will mean they are able to live as independently as possible, with the added support of someone to help manage social situations they might find stressful, helping to make and maintain relationships and assisting with general issues relating to any medical condition or disability.

Our expert consultants are always on hand to help you find the most qualified and highly trained private carers that can offer supported living for young adults with a wide range of conditions. Guardian Carers can provide support for young people who may be recovering from sustained treatment or a long period in hospital.

We can provide you private care for conditions such as:

  • Autism
  • Cerebral Palsy
  • Epilepsy
  • Spinal Injuries
  • Multiple Sclerosis
  • Stroke
  • Parkinson’s
  • Learning disabilities
  • Mental health issues


Searching for the right support and care for young adults can be a challenging and difficult task at times, which is why guardian Carers are here to take the stress off of your hands, and go above and beyond to find the perfect private carer for you. If you are looking for supported living for young adults with physical disabilities or another condition, we can provide you with a variety of care services to best suit the type of care you need.

Having a Live-In carer is considered the most comprehensive type of care that we can offer. At guardian carers, we pride ourselves in making sure you feel very comfortable with your carer. Your Live-In carer will be able to care for you 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, whilst you remain in your own home.

Live-Out care is a specific type of care that will help you with your daily tasks and activities. Having a Live-Out carer will be a seamless addition to your day to day tasks, and are able to help more than just around the household.

Hiring Part-Time care will mean your carer can be available once a week, a few times a week or for a couple of hours a day depending on what support you are looking for. If there is no need for you to require constant care throughout the day or week, then this type of care will be suitable for you. It will allow you to specify what care you need, and when you need it.

By using a private care agency such as Guardian Carers, we can also offer you a Housekeeper-Carer, which is the perfect hybrid of having a person who takes the responsibilities of your household duties, as well as assisting with your personal care. Your personal Housekeeper-Carer will be more flexible and are there to give you a helping hand wherever you may need it. This could range from changing the bed linen, to assisting with personal hygiene. A Housekeeper-Carer can be available for Part-Time or Full-Time work, as well as Live-in or Live-Out.

We can also offer you with a Companion Housekeeper. A Companion Housekeeper will be able to provide you with companionship within your daily life, as well as supporting your needs and caring for your safety. You are free to share stories and experience over a warm cup of tea. Your Companion Housekeeper will be carefully and thoroughly selected to ensure your personalities match and you share similar characteristics and morals to each other.

Respite care can also be provided for you or your loved one. Respite care allows you to be cared for within a set period of time, this can include personal and home care. In many situations, Respite care is often used for people if they have undergone an operation, or if their current private nursing carer is on annual leave. In addition, a Respite carer can also help with home transfers from the hospital for you or your loved one.


One of the biggest benefits of deciding to get a personal, home carer for a young adult is that it enables the individual to be more flexible. As a young person, you may not want to feel restricted by the traditional set-up of a residential care home, which may be abnormal to you. This why our private care agency can provide you with a better and more comfortable option for a young adult. In particular, Live-In care will allow you or your loved one to remain safe and independent in your own environment.

All of our carers are highly trained and qualified to work in the care industry, therefore we will have the chance to tailor a care package that is best suited for a young person. We take the time to fully understand your unique needs and develop a plan that will support them both physically and mentall. Guardian Carers can provide you with specialist support for any medical condition or disability.

For a young adult, having your own carer will not only allow you to remain in your home, but you are also still surrounded by loved ones and precious memories. Your personal carer will always be on hand to help you with anything you need.

Your private carer can assist you with:

  • Dispensing any medication
  • Personal care and hygiene
  • Keeping the house clean and tidy
  • Organising and taking you to any appointments
  • Cooking you meals and preparing snacks
  • Going for walks in the park or around the neighbourhood
  • Providing companionship

Personal, one-on-one care, whether it Full-Time or Part-Time, will be the most effective way to maintain your quality of life. The carer will focus on their day to day chores, while you focus on the more important things to you. This will ensure that young adults with ongoing care needs are still able to study if they are in education, and eventually find a fulfilling job. Whether the young adult is currently studying, or making the transition to university or the job world, our private carers for young people can be on hand to support the individual in all aspects of their personal and professional development.


At Guardian Carers, we will always ensure every single client is happy and in a long-lasting placement with their private carer. We not only want to provide you with the best carer, but also the best companionship suited for you. Throughout the process of searching for your personalised carer for a young person, there are three key stages we have to undergo.

Firstly, our expert consultants will be on hand to give you a free consultation where we would discuss your requirements and suggest the type of care suitable for you. During this consultation, we will be able to understand what you are looking for, and also find out your interests and morals so we can go above and beyond to match a carer best suited with your attributes.

After the consultation, we will then provide you with a range of sample profiles of candidates that we would recommend. Once you have selected your preferred choices, we will then arrange interviews for you at times when it is most convenient for you. At Guardian Carers, we are always happy to suggest any tips or interview questions you may want to ask in order to get a great deal of information from the candidate. We will then ask for your feedback and amend our search if needed.

Once you have found the carer you prefer the most, we can provide with sample contracts and assist you through all the paperwork that is required to hire a carer for a young adult, for example hours and payment. We are also happy to sign you up to our payroll service and HMRC.


Starting your search for a private carer could be overwhelming, especially if you do not know where to start. Which is why consulting in a private care agency could be a good start for you.
