Q3. Do you provide continuity of care?

Greenway Homecare ethos is to go back to the more traditional way of providing care for our loved ones. One way of achieving this is by ensuring the promotion of a friendly rapport between client and carer. We will also never provide a carer without first being introduced to the client by the clientís senior carer.

Q4. What happens if my carer is absent?

By going back to the traditional ways of providing care, this simply means no missed calls, attending on time (15 minutes either way of the allocated time, is in our terms and conditions and a copy can be obtained by contacting us on 0845 500 4045 or email us at info@greenwayhomecare.co.uk) and an hour means an hour. If a carer goes absent we will cover the call and keep you advised at all times.

Q5. Can they cook?

At Greenway we believe whatever we can do to make our clients lives less stressful and provide them with as much independence as they choose is only beneficial to the clients well being. If cooking is part of your care plan, we will cook meals. We will discuss your dietary needs and likes and dislikes at the initial assessment and this is written into your care plan. Our carers have been known to even provide clients with a BBQ.
