Companies We Recommend
Whilst Academy Care aim to fulfil all the needs of our clients, providing over 360 bespoke home care services, with the aim of optimizing the independence and well being of the people we care for. There are unfortunately some things we can’t do, aren’t qualified to do, or might not have the time to do during our calls. Our care professionals and office teams are commonly asked about things such as beauty, house adaptations, hairdressing and much more, and while we would love to help, sometimes it is just impossible.
This is why we have decided to create a directory of some of the best and most recommended companies in your local area. We do not directly work with any of these companies (unless stated otherwise) and we are not involved in the transaction of services, this is completely private between yourselves and that company, they are just companies that we have used, or we have spoke to about their services.
At the moment, the directory only involves companies based in Wakefield, but as we keep expanding into new locations and develop relationships with trusted companies in Barnsley, Doncaster, Huddersfield, Leeds, Lincoln, Sheffield, Rotherham, and York, we will add more companies for our clients in those areas.
