If at any time you would like to make changes to the tasks carried out during your calls you can contact your Care Manager.
There are a wide variety of ways in which our Care Workers can support you or your loved one. For some, their care package could involve someone popping in for a chat and a check up, for some, visits may involve helping someone to shower. You can click here to find out what services we provide.
Every Care Worker who works with Premier Care has been through a strict vetting process including a DBS check (a criminal records check) and a references check. We wouldn’t hire Care Workers that we wouldn’t trust in our own homes. All Care Workers who visit you will be wearing a Premier Care uniform and carry a personalised ID with their photograph and name.
Depending on the number of calls, we rarely have one Care Worker assigned to a particular client. We’ll do our best to send regular Care Workers however, due to sickness, shift patterns and other circumstances this isn’t always possible.
Our Care Plans are regularly reviewed to make sure your plan is up to date. We understand, however, that needs can often change without notice. That’s why our Care Managers are on hand for you to get in touch with. You can contact your Care Manager at any time during your service to voice concerns or to make alterations to your Care Plan.
You can call us on 01623 810 100 to find out more about our care services and to arrange for a meeting with one of our Care Managers. You can also email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
During your meeting a Care Plan will be created with your input, and the input of any family or friends you would like involved. This plan will help to create a service that suits you and helps the staff providing care to get to know you and your needs.
