Personal care
Supporting independent lives

Looking after individuals with restricted mobility or suffering from ill health, our services cover everyday functions like personal hygiene, toileting and dressing. Our friendly, dedicated and well-trained experts offer essential support and a shoulder to lean on wherever it’s needed.

Care with a capital ‘C’

We putting people at the heart of everything we do at NLG, our Personal Care services come with an added personal touch.

We believe that seeing the same friendly faces time after time is vital, as familiarity helps to increase the overall sense of wellbeing. Even though our carers are trained to provide all aspects of personal care, there may be some things the individual would still prefer to do for themselves. Not only will we respect that, but we’ll actively encourage it when appropriate.


Preparation is everything

Getting to know every last detail of what’s required, our care coordinator will create one of our unique bespoke plans for the service user, outlining their likes and dislikes, special task instructions, their favourite hygiene or beauty products, as well as what – and who – they feel most comfortable with.

Home comforts

Personal care is available for any daily tasks the service user may need help with, such as having a bath or taking a shower, applying creams and lotions, putting on clothes and toileting, all carried out with sensitivity in the comfort of the individual’s own home.
