Our companionship service is a lifeline to many people who are on their own or convalescing from an illness. At Sherwood Prime Care we are all aware that when we are less able to get out and about, loneliness can sometimes set in. Not being able to talk to anyone can make you feel very isolated and as though no one really cares.
Our aim is to bring happiness and fulfilment by providing quality support. Whether you'd like help with day-to-day tasks, support getting out and about, or simply someone to chat to, we'll be there for you. Here is an example of some of our companionship services.

Q - If I wish to use Sherwood Prime Care's services, what will happen next?
A - Firstly we will arrange a mutually convenient time for one of our friendly staff to visit you to discuss your requirements. From there, we will complete an initial assessment.
Q - Do you charge for making assessments?
A - We never charge for making an assessment. You will only ever pay for your home care support worker's time in your home, not their travel between calls, or any other service that you have specifically agreed with us in advance.
Q - Will I always have the same home care support worker?
A - One of the advantages of using Sherwood Prime Care Ltd is that we tailor home care support workers to match individual clients. The only time that this could vary is to cover sickness and holiday periods. We promise to personally introduce a cover home care support worker to you too if this was necessary.
Q - Are all your home care support workers DBS (CRB) checked?
A - Yes all our staff are DBS (CRB) checked.
Q - What training do your home care support workers have?
A - All our home care support workers receive comprehensive training prior to starting work. All new staff will undertake a lengthy induction process before entering onto our company training program.
Q - If I am not happy for any reason, who do I contact?
A - Our Registered Manager, Margaret Staff, will be on hand to discuss any areas of concern you may have. (Please call 01909 712 271 at any time).
