Home Care Companions provides practical help, support, and personal introductions to some of the UK's best private carers

About us


We offer a bespoke, popular and lower-cost alternative to elderly care, cutting out expensive care agency fees and avoiding unknown and often inexperienced carers being 'sent' into your home. You benefit from keeping control of your care, excellent value for money and no hidden surprises.


Listen to our national radio interview. Nick Ferrari on LBC interviews our founder, Julia Arnold, about how our service benefits our elderly clients and our full or part-time companions.
