Supporting Individuals and their Carers at Home


    The Firs Community Care Service aims to assist individuals to live as independently as possible within their own homes. Supporting everyone's individuality with dignity is the fundamental cornerstone of our philosophy. The care and support we provide in your home is of the same high standard as our residential setting, all staff are experienced, skilled and highly motivated. Although caring can be rewarding and has the potential to strengthen relationships, looking after a family member or friend can often be physically and emotionally demanding amidst life’s other responsibilities. With our support you as the carer can take some time out from your vital role whilst ensuring your loved one is getting the support and care they require. Respite Care Services can be provided to enable the carer to take 'what is often' a much needed break from their caring responsibilities.
