With domiciliary care, you or your loved one can continue to stay in the place you feel most comfortable – at home. We provide ongoing support that’s completely built around your needs and routines.

Many families are opting for domiciliary care – otherwise known as care at home – because it puts them back in control of the support they receive. With one-to-one personal attention, from either a live-in or visiting carer, our care plans are completely built around you, helping you to live as independently as possible in the place you love.

With Agape Care Solutions, you can take your pick from the many domiciliary care services we provide. Care can start from as little as 30 minutes a week and up to several visits a day. You can even opt for a round-the-clock carer living with you at home, or maybe support overnight when you may need it most.

Call us today to find out more about our domiciliary care services. All of our carers are expertly trained and, after finding out more about you, we’ll carefully match you with someone who fits your personality and interests.

No matter how committed you are to the needs of your loved one it’s so important to make time for yourself. That’s where we come in to help.

Whether it’s covering a two-week holiday, a short break or urgently because of sickness, we’re here when you need us to offer one-to-one care from trained, qualified professionals.

Contact us today to see how we can help you. If you need respite care in an emergency, we can help within as little as 24 hours’ notice.

Personal care is available for any daily tasks you may need support with, such as bathing, showering, applying creams and lotions, dressing and toileting, all in the comfort of your own home.

Working to your regular routines, and ensuring that support is tailored to your specific requirements, a fully trained carer offers discreet and professional personal care in the way that’s most comfortable to you.

We believe in the importance of a continuous service and the same familiar faces, especially when it comes to personal care. Speak to us to find out more about how we can support you or a loved one.

A change in routines and environment can be very daunting for someone who’s living with dementia. That’s why more families than ever are turning to home care rather than residential care, so their loved one can stay in the place they know and love.

Call us today to find out more about our dementia care services and the many flexible options for dementia care at home.

Home care doesn’t stop at the end of the day. Our carers also provide overnight care so you or your loved one can rest comfortably through the twilight hours too.

You may find you need night-time care if you or someone close to you feels uncomfortable being left alone. One-to-one nightly care from one of our fully trained carers means someone is there to assist with toilet breaks, administering medication or moving position in bed.

Everybody is different and each situation is unique, which is why our overnight care is tailored to you. With a dedicated night-time carer, help is available at any time. It means you or your loved one can stay in your own home – the place that is most comfortable.

It can be daunting to acknowledge that care is needed. Let us put your mind at ease – speak to our friendly team and find out how we can help you.

End-of-life care, for the most difficult of times

We understand how distressing it can be to see how a terminal illness is affecting a loved one. That’s where we can help, providing specialist support with the day-to-day things so your family can make the most of your time together.

Having palliative care at home means your family member or friend can remain in the place they feel most comfortable, surrounded by their memories and the people they love. With the one-to-one support of a compassionate carer, who is experienced in palliative care, they have specialist support whenever they need it.

Whether you’re looking for a full-time live-in carer, or a visiting carer for those times when you need some extra help, we provide the full range of care services for palliative and end-of-life care. For personal care, administering medication, cooking meals or sharing memories over a cup of tea, our support covers whatever you need.

If you’d like to find out more about the palliative care and how we can support you, call our friendly and sensitive team of advisors. We’re here seven days a week to talk through your options.

Modern slavery is a crime and a violation of fundamental human rights. It takes various forms, such as slavery, servitude, forced and compulsory labour and human trafficking, all of which have in common the deprivation of a person’s liberty by another in order to exploit them for personal or commercial gain.

The Company has a zero-tolerance approach to modern slavery, and we are committed to acting ethically and with integrity in all our business dealings and relationships and to implementing and enforcing effective systems and controls to ensure modern slavery is not taking place anywhere in our own business or in any of our supply chains.

We are also committed to ensuring there is transparency in our own business and in our approach to tackling modern slavery throughout our supply chains, consistent with our disclosure obligations under the Modern Slavery Act 2015.

We expect the same high standards from all of our contractors, suppliers and other business partners, and as part of our contracting processes, in the coming year we will include specific prohibitions against the use of forced, compulsory or trafficked labour, or anyone held in slavery or servitude, whether adults or children, and we expect that our suppliers will hold their own suppliers to the same high standards.

This policy applies to all persons working for us or on our behalf in any capacity, including employees at all levels, directors, officers, agency workers, seconded workers, volunteers, interns, agents, contractors, external consultants, third-party representatives and business partners.

This policy does not form part of any employee’s contract of employment and we may amend it at any time.

Responsibility for the policy
The Company has overall responsibility for ensuring this policy complies with our legal and ethical obligations, and that all those under our control comply with it.

The Company has primary and day-to-day responsibility for implementing this policy, monitoring its use and effectiveness, dealing with any queries about it, and auditing internal control systems and procedures to ensure they are effective in countering modern slavery.

Management at all levels are responsible for ensuring those reporting to them understand and comply with this policy and are given adequate and regular training on it and the issue of modern slavery in supply chains.

You are invited to comment on this policy and suggest ways in which it might be improved. Comments, suggestions and queries are encouraged and should be addressed to the Managing Director.

Compliance with the policy
You must ensure that you read, understand and comply with this policy.
The prevention, detection and reporting of modern slavery in any part of our business or supply chains is the responsibility of all those working for us or under our control.

You are required to avoid any activity that might lead to, or suggest, a breach of this policy.
You must notify your line manager OR a company Director as soon as possible if you believe or suspect that a conflict with this policy has occurred or may occur in the future.

You are encouraged to raise concerns about any issue or suspicion of modern slavery in any parts of our business or supply chains of any supplier tier at the earliest possible stage.

If you believe or suspect a breach of this policy has occurred or that it may occur, you must notify your line manager or company Director OR report it in accordance with our Whistleblowing Policy as soon as possible.

You should note that where appropriate, and with the welfare and safety of local workers as a priority, we will give support and guidance to our suppliers to help them address coercive, abusive and exploitative work practices in their own business and supply chains.

If you are unsure about whether a particular act, the treatment of workers more generally, or their working conditions within any tier of our supply chains constitutes any of the various forms of modern slavery, raise it with your line manager or company Director.

We aim to encourage openness and will support anyone who raises genuine concerns in good faith under this policy, even if they turn out to be mistaken. We are committed to ensuring no one suffers any detrimental treatment as a result of reporting in good faith their suspicion that modern slavery of whatever form is or may be taking place in any part of our own business or in any of our supply chains.

Detrimental treatment includes dismissal, disciplinary action, threats or other unfavourable treatment connected with raising a concern.

If you believe that you have suffered any such treatment, you should inform your line manager immediately. If the matter is not remedied, and you are an employee, you should raise it formally using our Grievance Procedure, which can be found in the current employee handbook.

Communication & awareness of this policy
Training on this policy, and on the risk our business faces from modern slavery in its supply chains, forms part of the induction process for all individuals who work for us, and updates will be provided using established methods of communication between the business and you.
Our zero-tolerance approach to modern slavery must be communicated to all suppliers, contractors and business partners at the outset of our business relationship with them and reinforced as appropriate thereafter.

Breaches of this policy
Any employee who breaches this policy will face disciplinary action, which could result in dismissal for misconduct or gross misconduct. We may terminate our relationship with other individuals and organisations working on our behalf if they breach this policy.
