All their carers are directly employed, policed checked and trained by Independent People Homecare.

How has Independent People Homecare Limited improved dementia care in the UK?
By continuing to keep those living with Dementia at home for as long as possible with the support of a Dementia specialised live in carer. The majority of people living with Dementia feel a comforting sense of safety in the familiar environment of their own home as their home is their ‘memory box’. Receiving dementia care at home can also avoid confusion compared to the noisy environment of a care home.
On better days, the individual is not confused as to why they are in a care home. Instead, they are in the familiar, secure and warm environment of their own home.
What has been your greatest achievement to date? And were there any measurable outcomes that accompanied this achievement?
Increased Life expectancy. It is a proven fact that those who live at home experienced higher activity levels, quality of life and social connectedness than those living in institutional care.
How many organisations/clients currently utilise the service/solution across the UK?
We provide live in care to over 100 customers across the UK and work with over 50 organisations including clinical commissioning groups, hospitals, GP’s and health care professionals.
What do you feel are the key points delegates need to digest when considering a partnership with Independent People Homecare Limited?
That live in care is a better alternative to care homes. Our aim is to keep people out of residential care for as long as possible. Live in care has a positive impact on wellbeing, happiness and reduced hospital admissions than care homes.
