Care UK Support at Home LeedsCare and support services provided by Care UK for people in Leeds
What does it do?
We're helping people across Leeds receive the help they need in their own homes.
We all fear the prospect of losing our independence, should we need some form of care or support during our lives. Our registered service, based in central Leeds, is helping people avoid that by providing expert support to individuals in their own homes.
At any single time we’re providing support for around 350 people across the Greater Leeds area. Services can cover anything from in-home support with domestic tasks, such as cooking or cleaning, through to help getting to and from hospital appointments or administering medication. While such benefits might appear obvious, our customers also value the sense of companionship our enablers bring. For example, we can be there to offer good company and conversation, or help people pursue hobbies, attend church services, or go on outings. There is no prescription – our services are tailored specifically around the requirements of each individual customer.
Key to our approach is our focus on providing a service which is truly bespoke and person centred. Each person we support helps design a care and support plan structured around their individual needs.
We also understand that informal carers, such as friends and family, often need a little bit of support too or a well deserved break. That’s why we currently provide 600 hours of respite support to carers every week. As with all of our services – nothing comes out of a box – we can be called upon from as little as an hour on an ad-hoc basis right through to around the clock longer terms support whilst the main carer takes a holiday.
