The frequency and duration of visits by a member of staff are arranged to meet your individual needs, however should what you require not appear above, we would be delighted to tailor our service for you.
We focus on quality and the promotion of independence. Mears’ ethos is to work in partnership not to take over. We incorporate the essential elements of choice, competence, individuality, continuity and respect in all of our services.
Our support packages are tailored to your individual needs and can be changed and adapted even on a day to day basis. Our staff are trained to fully assess your needs and to work with you to plan your support.
All our care workers are thoroughly trained and vetted with enhanced CRB checks (PVG in Scotland and EDC in Northern Ireland) carried out on all staff so you can be confident that the care workers visiting you in your home are reliable and trustworthy. Your care will be delivered by your local team of care workers rather than one individual, ensuring your needs are always met.
