From the minute you meet us, be it our wonderful CareAngels, our team at HQ, or our Founder, the two-times Olympic sailor, Christina Bassadone, you will notice one thing – we really care about home care.
All of us believe that, wherever possible, care at home is the best option. As someone who grew up with her grannies whom she watched later on in life grapple with poor care experiences, Christina became inspired to set up Guardian Angel Carers and make care better!
Christina’s aim was to offer the same compassionate and high quality care that she would want to give to her own family. So, starting from a houseboat in 2012 with a team of three, to our growing national franchises today, we all keep that vision at the centre of our focus.
It’s a story you will see and hear about a lot within our Guardian Angel Care family too. Our first franchisee, Lou in Spelthorne, famously came to us because no other care agency was good enough to look after her grandparents.
Our elderly and home care clients alike can trust us to look after them in that way too. And, to support them to hold on to their cherished independence, whilst living safely and happily at home in the comfort of our family inspired home care.
Our CareAngels are not only the wonderful friendly faces who pop-in to drop off the shopping, make a meal or stop for a cup of tea and a chat, but are also knowledgeable heads and skilled hands who can administer medication and personal care.
Guardian Angel Carers can also offer a combination of in-person care and care technology to give you and your family peace of mind. From a half-hour visit to our full live-in care service; we work around you to provide you with just the right amount of care you need to live life the way you want.
The team at our HQ in West Sussex also roll up their sleeves and deliver care. The wonderful CareAngel home care team look after clients in the South East daily. There is nothing remote or faceless about our HQ team who are all fully trained carers themselves and understand the care experience first hand. They continually undergo training to refresh their care knowledge in order to keep one step ahead and implement any new developments for all our CareAngels and franchise branches, wherever they are in the UK.
At the same time, HQ are advancing and improving the home care experience for all our clients by taking an innovative approach to enabling care technology. We form partnerships and pro-actively develop ways to use progressive technology and systems to combine the most independence enabling home care services, with the most compassionate person-to-person care.
Our meticulous attention to detail means we regularly achieve top regulatory Care Quality Commission (CQC) ratings. Our services and training are closely monitored both in-house and by external organisations.
It is an approach that ensures our services go above and beyond the set standards so that we can always be highly responsive, effective and safe in the delivery of our home care.
Guardian Angel Carers encourages an environment of continual improvement. All of our CareAngels get continuous personal and professional development with our award-winning training programmes for new learning, practical skills and wellbeing support. Plus our office staff are provided regular coaching to support their professional skills.
We know everyone is different with individual care, emotional and practical needs. Our home care services satisfy multiple care needs from companionship, visiting care to full-time live-in care.
Our specialist CareAngels can also provide home care for those with progressive or life-limiting conditions, including Dementia and Alzheimer’s, as well as support Palliative Care with sensitivity and professionalism.
All our care plans are carefully prepared in close consultation with you and your family. You will find we will always be open and realistic to finding solutions that offer as much independence and enjoyment of living at home as possible.
Every CareAngel you welcome into your home is mindfully selected to match the personality of the person they will be visiting, aiming to build trusted care relationships with both you and your family.
You can be assured too that all our CareAngels undergo comprehensive reference and DBS background checks.
We appreciate that the cost of care is a significant consideration. You and your family will want the best care at excellent value.
Our costs are charged by the time and type of service you require. You can book us for as little as half an hour to full around the clock care, giving you the flexibility to control your care finances.
Our team are available to help you to project and draw up your potential home care costs. The support allows you and your family to have peace of mind, that you fully understand the costs, and that you can manage and budget appropriately.
You can ask us anything. Feel free to book a free consultation where we will listen, guide and advise you on the best options of support. We look forward to speaking with you.
