MyLife Living Assistance

MyLife Living Assistance offers professional and compassionate support in the home, enabling a more independent lifestyle. There are many ways we are offering our clients assistance; from help at home, personal care, taking you to see friends, to keeping you company. We know that retaining independence as you get older is important to every individual. It’s not so easy now for families to support each other practically as they are often spread further apart, and with everyone having busy lives of their own. However, MyLife can support the whole family, ensuring everyone is happy with the right assistance being provided to those who need it. MyLife Living Assistance is here to provide you with everything you could wish for, by caring professionals you can trust and depend on. MyLife is the Private Client division of Carewatch, one of the UK’s leading home care companies which has been providing quality care to many thousands of individuals for over 24 years

2. What are the challenges to delivering these outcomes from the perspective of your organisation?

The biggest challenge for us is to find qualifeid staff to deliver the service as work is not guaranteed, hours can change at short notice as do clients needs. Training is constant and ongoing and very important to us as an organisation.
