Why use Home Care Direct
Because Carers/Personal Assistants work for themselves, they are much more motivated than Carers/Personal Assistants who work with an agency. They know that they need to go above and beyond the call of duty to ensure their clients get the best possible service.
Our platform also attracts carers/Personal Assistants who are naturally proactive and who see caring as their career rather than as a filler between other jobs. At Home Care Direct we feel that empowering Carers/Personal Assistants is the best way to drive quality care provision.
Value for Money
Because you are avoiding the overhead costs of an agency and dealing directly with Carers/Personal Assistants, you are getting much better value for money. In some cases up to 40% better value! However, not alone are you getting better value but your Carer/Personal Assistant is also much better rewarded than they would be if working through an agency. Home Care Direct is a win/win situation for everyone involved.

Great Choice of Carers/Personal Assistants
Home Care Direct has a great selection of Carers/Personal Assistants giving you real choice over who delivers your care. A very small percentage of the Carers/Personal Assistants we interview actually get accepted onto the platform.
