Virtus Care make sure our personal care service and our carers are as flexible as possible which is why we often conduct an assessment beforehand, so we can design and tailor a care plan to your requirements and needs. Our assessments will often ask you about your interests and hobbies, as well as daily routines, so we can pick a suitable carer that you can bond with and truly be comfortable. Our carers are highly trained and will be adaptable and experienced in any further services you may need, in a discreet and professional manner. We understand that there are some things you or your loved one may prefer to do by themselves, at Virtus our carers respect people in their independence and dignity and will always give you space.

Personal care options

Virtus Care can provide multiple options for your personal care needs, whether that is a 24 hour live in carer who will assist and support you day and night, but also be unobtrusive and support your independence – or apart time visiting carer who will come into your home at scheduled times who will aid you in your routines and requirements – for however long you need. Our main aim is to match you with a carer who will not only take care of all your personal care, but also allow you to eventually become friends and build a bond of companionship.  

How to arrange personal care for a family member or loved one.

It is not unusual for a family member or loved one to be uncomfortable carrying out personal care for someone close to them. It can often be awkward and sometimes the more intimate tasks difficult. This is why having a personal carer who can handle all of these tasks is an opportunity for you to be able to spend time with your loved ones – or take a break, while we handle the personal care side of things.
The familiar face of a carer who attends to your loved one every day is often comforting and provides reassurance for your loved one.

Funding for personal care is often payed partly from your local authority or payed directly from you or your loved one, it’s always worth contacting the local council to find out what benefits and funding your loved one is entitled to.

My Carer with Virtus was a live-in carer, she provided me with everything I needed to be comfortable in my own home, since I am now immobile, the carer helped me with all of my household tasks and even helped me look after my pet. She was always happy and I’m glad to say I see her now as family rather than just a care assistant.
