What we do

“Crossroads Carers are better trained than social services or agency Carers”.

We provide high-quality, bespoke care for your loved one in their own home. Our highly trained Carer Support Staff take over a Carers responsibility for a few hours each week. This “me-time” contributes to the Carer’s physical and mental well-being, enabling them to have some time to themselves, to meet with friends, participate in leisure activities, go shopping or simply relax. The key factor is that they can spend their time with complete peace of mind, knowing that the Crossroads Care staff member is a qualified professional working to a detailed care plan.
