For eight years ShineCare has been providing specialist, person centred at home services for people with demanding complex care issues.
In 2017 we were asked if we would like to provide the care for older people housed in a state of the art, new build, modern care home which would have 63 occupants. We looked at the model in detail and realised that no one wants to end up in a care home with a bunch of strangers. Ideally we would all like to be cared for in our own homes with familiar surroundings, with our own neighbours, family and pets around us.
We soon realised that people only go into a care home because it is cheaper option for a local authority or there isn’t a reliable at home service available.
Building on our own experiences we decided to extend the ShineCare service to provide an exceptional home care service for older people, to offer both them and their families the peace of mind and reassurance that their well-being and safety is being cared for.
Our vision is to deliver a high quality service based on connection, kindness and compassion; a service that we would choose without hesitation for our own loved ones and indeed for ourselves.
