A companion success story
Rebecca, aged 92, has had a couple of falls in recent months. She is generally fit and active but no longer drives and doesn't see her local friends in Hampshire as often as in the past. Her daughter lives in Norfolk and her son in Manchester - both leading hectic lives focused around work and children.
They are all relieved that a companion is with Rebecca regularly, to offer some practical help with food, drink and tidying and more - including driving, while enabling valuable social interaction. This has proved reassuring for Rebecca especially, who found that even with a call button on a necklace, it was very disconcerting to fall and wait on her own for help.

LiveIn Care/24 Hour Care: Perfect around the clock support for those who wish to remain at home but still require companionship and assistance with daily household duties.

Our support workers undergo enhanced background and reference checks along Enhanced DBS ensuring that they are all trustworthy, reliable and honest.
We promise: Carefully checked home support workers , companions and housekeepers
We understand how important it is to match the perfect client and the perfect carer/family.
We are an introduction Agency and we will find one candidate to work with you and your family to suit your requirements, rather than a continuous stream of carers on a daily/weekly basis, which can for many of our elderly clients, become extremely confusing and upsetting.
As an introduction agency, this will confirm the client as the employer, and that they are classed as the employer of the Companion/Housekeeper, and will therefore be solely responsible for their tax, National Insurance and pension contributions along with their own employers contributions.
As part of our service and commitment to our clients and families, Hummingbird Home Support provide all new clients with all the relevant information and support needed in order to ensure that they are able to easily set up payroll for their employee and provide contract of employment through our recommended Payroll specialist company Way2Paye. They will also receive any and as much advise needed regarding employees sickness and holiday entitlement etc, along with full legal advise if and when needed.

Being first timers to the nanny recruitment process we were worried about finding that right person. I am so glad we called Hummingbird. They really care about the families and the nannies and through them we found our Mary Poppins.
