Private funded care

October 10, 2020

For over 75 years myHomecare’s pioneering businesses have been offering their clients a simple way to access the full range of in-home services under a private funding arrangement. We can provide Private Care for you or a loved one who may need specialist medical nursing 24/7 for a complex condition or end-of-life care at home. You may choose Private Care for a week – or it could be for six months.

Our unique approach to Private Care gives you the very best of care in your own home, where you feel comfortable and at ease. We listen to your story and care needs, and then together work out the services you would like, and when you would like them – this forms your specialised care plan.
