What is Hourly Home Care?
Care Force provides home care for individuals who need a little help with day to day activities. This is sometimes referred to as “domiciliary care” and involves carers making regular visits to provide an array of services. The government and local authorities continue to encourage people to be cared for in their own homes rather than opting for residential care; there is no place like home.
This service can be as flexible as you need it to be – from 15 minutes to one hour to overnight. Some of the services which we can provide in the comfort of your own home are listed:
Assistance with all your personal hygiene

Who is Hourly Home Care for?
Home care is for those who wish to stay in their own homes and maintain their independence; but require support in order to do so. No matter what your needs are; we like to think our care services make all the difference.
At Care Force we recognise the difficulties that asking for help can present. We can use our experience and committed team of carers who are local to you to present a positive and realistic path forward. We recognise that our ability to provide a leading service to our customers is dependent upon the abilities and performance of our care workers.
We only employ the best care workers, all of whom are required to go through a robust recruitment and selection programme especially designed by our in-house business psychologist.
Those requiring our assistance often need a little support with their personal care. We are there to offer reassurance and encouragement to help you do the things that you can still do for yourself. We also provide full support with all the little things that make you feel good about yourself; whether that be washing, dressing, continence care, bathing, showering. We tailor our care services and maintain their flexibility so that we help you do the things exactly how you like it.
Getting your confidence back
Our person centred approach to care ensures you are put at the centre of everything that we do, empowering you to take control and encouraging and promoting your independence at all times.
Easing the transition from informal to formal care
Care Force aims to work alongside your informal carer(s) so that they are as involved as you want them to be.
We have 21 successful years of providing home care in Worcestershire thanks to our fantastic team of carers.
The nature of our work means we have to be 100% confident in our carers’ knowledge, skills and abilities. Every aspect of our service has the potential to improve someone’s life and our care workers go through a rigorous assessment and selection process which makes sure we get the best of the best.
