We go the Xtra mile with Care in Your Own Home
We go the Xtra mile with Supported Living
We go the Xtra mile with Complex Care
We go the Xtra mile with Personal Care
We’ve been the home care provider of choice to families for over three years. Our carers go the extra mile for our customers and get to see first-hand the peace of mind that their ongoing support provides.
We only select the very best individuals to lead our care service. Our management and nursing teams have extensive experience in the care sector, from providing one-to-one care to working with charities and the NHS. Regularly working with clinical commissioning groups (CCGs) and continuing healthcare (CHC) teams, we are also adept at arranging packages of NHS-funded home care.
All of our carers complete a rigorous training programme including manual handling, first aid, condition-led care, medication, equality & diversity, personal care and safeguarding. As well as completing regular refresher training, we invest in our carers and encourage them to enhance their theoretical and practical skills in areas that are of particular interest to them.
Allowing someone you don’t know to enter your home can be a daunting experience, particularly if they’re supporting you with things that you’re no longer able to do yourself. That’s why we have put stringent guidelines in place that must be adhered to by all of our carers to give you the reassurance that we are consistently providing a safe, effective and responsive service. These include a Disclosure Barring Service (DBS) screening and thorough background checks.
Once our carers have completed the detailed training programme delivered by our in-house instructors, they will work closely with their care manager to ensure they have everything they need in order to deliver the exceptional service expected from Xtra Healthcare.
All Our carers are :
• Qualified in care and passionate about helping others
• Individually selected through our internal recruitment process
• Experienced in social care and health sector
• Friendly and well spoken
• Recruited locally with the right to work in the UK
• CRB/DBS checked

At Xtra Healthcare, we provide complex care in the home across the UK to support adults and children with conditions including:
Our complex care services are tailored to the client’s specific needs, wishes and lifestyle choices. In developing care packages, we explore with the client, their family and commissioners issues including:
By combining this information with a full clinical assessment of client needs and risk assessments, we are able to create a complete picture of the client that enables us to select appropriately trained, qualified and experienced staff to deliver a holistic care package designed to support maximum independence and quality of life.
Our trained, qualified and experienced carers are supervised by a specialist nurse with a critical care background, who will liaise with the client, their family and other stakeholders – such as a GP, the local primary care trust or hospital – to ensure that all the necessary elements, from equipment to a hospital discharge plan, are in place before the package commences.
What does domiciliary care mean? Quite simply, when a carer or personal assistant offers visiting support at home. Different to live-in care where you receive ongoing support, this type of care is for those who prefer support at set regular times each week. This could be as little as a weekly housekeeping visit through to several visits a day to help with personal care, getting around the home or preparing meals, for example.
It even covers overnight support if you need some extra assistance with nightly toilet trips or taking medication. You can arrange what is called a ‘sitting service’ for the whole of the night so if there is ever a problem, someone is on hand to help.
Who is domiciliary care for?
Those who wish to stay within their own homes may be very interested in the idea of regular visits from a qualified carer. It may be that they need a little extra support after having an operation or have a long-term condition such as dementia, Parkinson’s or multiple sclerosis.
Domiciliary care, in short, is for anyone who wants to remain independent within the comfort of their own home rather than move into residential care, but may need some extra help in order for that to happen.
As a regulated care provider with years of experience of supporting people in their own homes, our carers can help in all kinds of ways, with their priority being the comfort and wellbeing of the person in their care.
