McDonald Homecare specialises in live in care, providing people with the preferred lifestyle choice of staying in their own home while receiving care and companionship from our professional live in care team.
We are an introductory live in care agency who introduce our registered Lifestyle Companions to the Clients directly. This enables both the Client and Lifestyle Companion to build a trusted partnership to manage the care that is required. The introductory service therefore minimises the administrative procedures and costs, enabling a simple and easy to navigate process for all those involved.
As a company, we are passionate about people and all those involved in the life of our Clients. Our Lifestyle Companions provide caring and professional support that reflect the great British family values. Clients who choose McDonald Homecare choose quality recruitment, compliance and introductory services that are founded upon our four core values:
Lifestyle Companions who are recruited to the highest standards and have the character to be trusted to live and care for people in their own homes;
Lifestyle Companions who have the qualities of honesty and strong moral principles to be responsible for those who are vulnerable in the community;
Lifestyle Companions who have the best interests of the person at the heart of their care services and provide the utmost respect throughout the relationship;
Lifestyle Companions who are are able to promote independence through their caring and nurturing nature. Everything else can be trained and developed.
At McDonald Homecare, we strongly believe that the values of the Lifestyle Companions cannot be trained and these values are inherent in the people we select and register.
We recruit and introduce the Lifestyle Companions who have these values so the Client, family and any other representatives then contract the Lifestyle Companion to provide the specific and ongoing care needs.
Unlike other care agencies, we only charge an introductory fee for each successfully matched Lifestyle Companion. Once this fee is paid, the only cost for the Client is the Lifestyle Companions salary. This enables the Clients ongoing care costs to be reduced by 30% compared to other live in care companies.
