Matching a live-in care worker to you

You may have reservations about the idea of a new person coming to live in your house. We work hard to find your the right person.

We match a care worker to you through a comprehensive assessment and matching process – done by people, not a computer. We take pride in our personal approach to arranging your live-in care.

We have a rigorous process to make sure we only recruit the right live-in care staff, rejecting many more candidates than we recruit. We look for hard-working people with a special blend of compassion, common sense, reliability and a great sense of humour.

Why choose Agincare for live-in elderly care?

What makes our live-in care service special is that we fully manage it. While other live-in care services – such as introductory services – are available, they offer less protection and fewer guarantees for the same price.

We go the extra mile. We employ and pay the care staff, which means we have a duty of care. For example, if your care worker is ill, it’s our job to find someone to replace them.
