How we can help

Rated Outstanding by the CQC, we provide live-in care in Kent, managed by our South East team in Alton. We provide live-in home care tailored exclusively to you and your needs.

We provide you with a carefully selected carer who will be with you 24-hours a day, seven days a week offering as much or as little personal and domestic support as you require.

We can also support more complex care needs, including:

Caring for you safely

Care in your own home, particularly live-in care, is one of the safest ways to receive care for you and your family. Throughout the pandemic, we are proud to have cared safely for all our clients and continue to take all necessary steps to help keep clients and carers as safe as possible.

  • Our carers undergo weekly COVID-19 testing to maximise safe care

  • Our carers are being vaccinated as a matter of priority

  • We continue to monitor and adhere to Public Health England guidance and support from UK Home Care Association (UKHCA)

  • Our Business Manager is in continuous communication with our carers to provide support and ensure they are following stringent hygiene and infection control measures set out by the NHS

Our care services

Your support, our passion

Berkeley Home Care is dedicated to providing high-quality live-in care in Kent for those who want to live happily in their own homes. We provide a wide range of care services and pride ourselves in being able to offer home care for anyone in any situation.

The Berkeley Home Care management team has over twenty years of experience in providing the highest standards in everything we do for our clients, their relatives and friends, the wider community, and our carers. We are passionate in the belief that our clients deserve the best possible lifestyle options in their own environment, where they can lead a happy, fulfilling life.

Home care for older people

Leaving your home to live in a care home can be traumatic, which is why we offer home care services to help people live in the comfort of their own home for as long as possible. We can offer additional help a few times per week or even as a full-time live-in arrangement to maintain a good quality of life without the stress and upheaval of moving to a residential care home.

Our options for live-in care in Kent include care for people with specialist requirements as well as more general support for people who are simply a little less mobile than they once were. This is an increasingly popular alternative around the country and helps to maintain independence.

Offering a real alternative to life in a care home

Support for older people in their own home is becoming an increasingly popular alternative to moving into a care home. We understand the importance of promoting and maintaining independence, helping maintain regular routines and having as normal a life as possible. From companionship through to personal care and to higher-level personal needs, our team can help nearly anyone to stay at home.

  • Avoids the trauma of potential separation from a loved one or treasured pet, or giving up living in familiar surroundings and the potential loss of freedom and independence

  • Support at home is entirely possible even for those with specialist care requirements, with costs typically comparable to those associated with residential care

  • Fully tailored to the needs of the individual. Our support offers significant benefits over residential care, allowing you or your loved one to continue to live independently in the comfort and security of your own home

  • Enjoy your favourite activities and remain part of your local community

  • Greater flexibility. We can provide just a few hours of care per week which can be increased as needs change

  • Live-in support is the ultimate level of care and has the benefit of true continuity

Meet the live-in care Kent team

We give priority to assembling the best team possible, recruiting special, dedicated people and training them to perform their job superbly and create a working environment where they can thrive and make a real difference to the lives of our clients.

All of our team are employed directly by Berkeley Home Care. We take great effort to match the right carer with each client. We look at the individual requirements of each person and match them to the carer who has the appropriate skills and the most suitable personality.

All our team are carefully selected and subject to UK Enhanced DBS (Disclosure Barring Service) checks. This is a government database holding details of anyone with a criminal record. We also obtain at least two references before anyone starts working for Berkeley Home Care. When interviewing for new carers we are of course looking for relevant experience and life skills. However, the deciding factor for us when recruiting is “Would we want this person supporting our loved one?”
