Choosing what is best for you and your family
We recognise how important it is for you, or your loved one, to remain happily independent and living at home. Unlike the majority of home care agencies, which can offer a limited and inflexible service, we aim to provide you with a great alternative. Our home assistants will have a tailor made role to suit your exact requirements.
Your chosen assistant will be employed directly by you, and a specific job description will be agreed prior to commencement of employment. This enables you to have complete control over the daily tasks which you require assistance with. This provides you, the employer, with much greater control than the traditional home-care agency model.
As an employer, there are certain responsibilities which fall on you, such as paying tax and national insurance for your assistant, and ensuring that they have statutory employment rights such as paid holiday, sick pay, pension etc.
With this in mind, you should always make sure that your assistants have a formal contract of employment. This protects you as the employer, as well as ensuring that your assistant’s rights are protected.
