Why us?


We are:

  • brilliant matchmakers! We take the extra time to really understand your needs

  • leading the way in "intelligent profiling"  (See 'perfect match' page)

  • proud to be pioneering a better, lower-cost alternative to live-in care

  • excellent value for money, enabling you to cut out expensive agency fees  

  • professional, thorough, skilled and reliable - please see our testimonials

  • lovely people! – we genuinely care about the happiness of all our hosts and carers

  • totally committed to only matching companions whom we would want to look after our own parents


We are different from care agencies

All of our companions:

  • are high calibre. We only take the top 5% of live-in carers

  • have excellent written references from previous jobs in the UK

  • speak fluent English

  • already live in the UK

  • are experienced in care

  • are qualified

  • are tested for literacy, articulation and ability to follow written instructions

  • live with you on a long-term basis and do not swap around with other carers on shifts or rotas


We are different because:

  • our clients know exactly who they are getting

  • we insist all carers/companions provide us with written references 

  • we offer tax-free solutions or a wholly tax compliant payroll solution for just £8 a week. You choose

  • we protect our client's liabilities from the risks associated with hiring self-employed carers by HMRC

  • Our services are seamless and we protect our clients' liabilities from the risks associated with hiring self-employed carers by HMRC

  • we follow-up on written references with detailed telephone interviews

  • all our clients are provided with thorough background information on their candidates

  • you stay in control. With our help, your companion works directly for you and not the agency

We find the best carers and companions who are chosen for their kind and caring natures. 
The care industry is not properly regulated, so do make sure you use a provider who works ethically, shows you proper carer references and fully informs and supports you and your carer during the placement process.
