“At Universal Care Agency we promise to consistently deliver high-quality and personalised care, using only the most trusted and experienced care workers in the industry. We have strict recruitment and training procedures and, along with continuous support, routinely supervise each of our care workers to ensure your needs are always being met.”
Whether you need clinical attention, respite or assistance with domestic duties our experienced team are here to help. We believe freedom of choice when developing your care can lead to greater independence and would love to talk with you about reaching your personal goals.
We make all efforts to provide clients with the same carer on a regular basis, however to avoid missed appointments we might sometimes need to send another familiar carer to cover circumstances such as sickness.
After a rigorous registration procedure, with full referencing and police checks, our carers are recruited for their character, as well as their experience. View our traits and characteristics chart here
