Guild Care's Home Care service  - which is rated 'Good' by the Care Quality Commission - was established in 1994 to promote independence by helping people with many aspects of daily living.

Our service enables older people and vulnerable adults in Worthing and surrounding areas 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. Our Domestic Home Care team will make your life easier by doing a range of tasks including:-

  • Housework
  • Laundry tasks
  • Hoovering and cleaning
  • Changing bed covers 
  • Shopping for you or assisted/escorted shopping
  • Picking up a prescription
