Our Trusted Team
Our values concentrate on exceeding expectations and delivering homecare services which we ourselves would wish to receive. To this end, we carefully select and recruit dedicated and caring individuals who share our ethos.
Following recruitment, we train our care team to the highest possible standards, ensuring they can comfortably perform the duties of their roles. All staff members are DBS checked to an enhanced level and are fully insured with public liability cover.
Our carers will always be appropriately dressed and carry photographic identification badges for additional security and peace of mind.
Academy Care is an ethical employer; people and quality come before profit. To this end, we have a full and ongoing commitment to the wellbeing of our staff. We offer contracted hours – above the National Living Wage, mileage and travel costs, performance-related bonuses as well as Employee Assisted Services.

We focus on quality over quantity; with this in mind, we aim to provide affordable care that meets your individual needs and preferences. Scheduled visits can vary from 30 minutes to multiple hours depending on your needs. Please note, costs vary for evenings, weekends and Bank Holidays.
Our prices are all inclusive so you know exactly where you stand from the very beginning. Any added extras for mileage or travel time paid to care staff will be discussed and agreed with you prior to starting. We appreciate that funding can be a daunting prospect and may have a considerable impact on you and your family. We therefore create an individual plan - taking not only your personal needs but also your financial concerns into consideration.
Call our customer services team today and they will be more than happy to discuss the cost of your home care with you. Please bear in mind that we may also be able to point you in the right direction for advice on home care funding which may be available to you from the government.
