About our Home Care service

Our Home Care service was established in 1994 to promote independent living. The service enables older people and vulnerable adults in and around Worthing to lead better quality lives whilst remaining safe and comfortable in their own homes.

Our Domestic Home Care Team provides help for independent people who want to live in the community but need a helping hand with housework, shopping and those little jobs which are difficult if you are not feeling well or are frail and struggling with mobility.
