The Support Team You Deserve
“The best benefit of using Better Caring was having a really personalised, flexible service that delivered above and beyond our expectations. It’s become a new life for my father. His life is improving, and it’s marvelous.”
“I am so excited about Better Caring. All the staff at Better Caring and my support workers are always happy to help. I like being able to choose who supports me and what they help me with. My new support workers are helping me make a plan for the future.”

“Better Caring have provided three excellent and professional carers who regularly support my son, Nick, to participate in varied and fulfilling social activities. They are prepared to work with me as far as times and dates are concerned. They are skilled in all aspects of my son’s needs and have certainly broadened the scope of his community access opportunities.”
“Although I am only 102, I do need a little Better Caring and I must say that it’s absolutely wonderful. I could choose my own people… I got a wonderful girl, a dancer, who was also a carer, so we were able to work together on my new dance production. I also have plenty of time with them, it’s not just rushing in and doing the washing up, we do creative work together.“
