Private hourly care at home
Getting older can sometimes mean that people need a little more help to keep on doing the things they love. Adults living with a disability or a long-term condition may need to adapt their environment and routines in order to cope with everyday tasks.
Domiciliary care covers a range of home help services, from companion care to look after the wellbeing of your loved ones, to home nursing care to make sure that the needs of living with a long-term illness or disability are met.
It’s perfectly understandable that families can worry if the people they care about aren’t able to do the things they enjoy. At Saga Healthcare we understand that worry and we’re here to help
Visiting care is currently available through:
- Saga Care at Home in selected areas in Hertfordshire, Bedfordshire and Middlesex
- Patricia White's in selected London areas
Private home care service with a difference
Saga is a private homecare service with a difference. Our aim is to help older people stay independent whilst still getting the support they need, and allow younger adults to manage independently in their own homes.
It could mean taking them out shopping or to meet friends, providing a hand with housework or cooking a meal, and if they need help with personal hygiene, we’re able to take care of that as well.
The right care plan for everyone
We’re here for you and the people you care about. Our care team will sit down with everyone to create a fully personalised care plan based on individual needs and wants. We then present the finished care plan so you can decide on the right level of care, which, of course, can be changed from week to week as required.

- Reminding, assisting with and administering medications
