What you need to know about private carers in Sheffield

There is no place like home and Guardian Carers enables you to continue living the life you love in the home you love.

There are many private care services that you can access in Sheffield. But just remember to always do a very thorough research before deciding what private care agency to choose or whether you want to hire a private carer in Sheffield yourself.

Firstly, you should understand what private care is and what private carers can do for you when they come into your Sheffield home. Private care is essentially home care - care provided to you by a private carer in your own household. Private care means different things. Every person is special and has different needs. Guardian Carers recognises that and this is why we would never send you a private carer in Sheffield that doesn’t suit you. We tailor our private care to your specific needs.

If you are looking simply for some companionship and a little bit of help with housekeeping, we can pair you up with the right private carer for you. If your needs or your loved one’s needs are a bit more complicated than this, we can also find the private carer who will meet those requirements.

If you’re located in the Sheffield area and you’re looking for a private carer to offer you companionship, here are some examples of what that might mean:

  • Being a conversation partner
  • Going on family or friends visits
  • Attending the theatre or shows together
  • Assisting with doctor appointments
  • Picking up prescriptions
  • Providing transportation for various trips
  • Cleaning/ organising around your home
  • Preparing meals
  • Doing food shopping
  • Watering plants
  • Gardening

If you need a private carer in Sheffield that can help you or your family out with more complex activities, that is also fine. We can provide fully-trained private carers who can do, among others, the following:

  • Vacuuming
  • Dusting
  • Help with mobility
  • Help with personal care, such as bathing, using the toilet and more
  • Help using public transport
  • Driving (if necessary)

That is why hiring Guardian Carers will help take the burden of looking for a private carer in Sheffield off your shoulders. Guardian Carers will help you or your loved one find a private carer that matches your needs and requirements. Guardian Carers can go as far as finding a private carer which shares the same hobbies and interests with you, because it allows for a stronger connection to be made. This outlook is what leads to many of our private carers to create a strong bond with families in Sheffield and stay together for longer.

Guardian Carers will offer you a list of private carers which best match your interests and needs. We take care of all that boring stuff for you, so you can only focus on picking the best private carer for your home in Sheffield. Guardian Carers will give you interviewing tips and make sure to book the interviews for private carers at your home in Sheffield, even if the private carer we find you will be from outside Sheffield. As soon as you go through a batch of interviews or if you’re lucky and you really love and connect with the candidate, Guardian Carers will still guide you through. Once you have chosen your private carer in Sheffield we will help you with paperwork and will provide sample contracts, in order to carry out a simple and adequate hiring process with your private carer. We have a 15 year experience in placing carers. All our qualified private carers have a minimum of 3 years experience. Also, if you’re in Sheffield and you’re looking for a private carer with medical training we can provide that too.
