Personal Assistants for Younger People

Agincare provides support workers for young adults, including those with higher levels of dependency due to illness or disability. We offer support so you can continue to live independently at home, engage in training, further education or simply go to work. Whether you are making the transition from school to college, or from university to the workplace our support service provides a full-time solution and is flexible enough to be a realistic and affordable alternative to other forms of support. As our service is fully managed you do not need to undertake the duties of an employer and you have the peace of mind of knowing your support worker’s holidays will be paid for and covered. They will have undergone all the required checks (eg DBS) and their training will be updated annually – all included in the reasonable weekly cost. The benefits of Agincare’s care and support include:

  • Round the clock care and support without the round the clock cost
  • One to one support
  • Your own support worker/s supporting you in your chosen lifestyle
  • You don’t have the responsibilities (and risks) of being an employer
