All of the staff at Essence Telford undertake a 12-week induction course where they learn all aspects of Personal Care, including Health & Safety, Moving & Handling, Infection Control, Medication Awareness, Food Hygiene and First Aid.  Our staff are fully-trained to handle any situation with the greatest amount of discretion, humility and respect for the client’s dignity and privacy. We understand that our clients have their individual care requirements – be it limited mobility or a particular condition.

Essence Telford believe it is important for vulnerable people to be able to stay in their own environment with their home comforts for as long as possible – a residential or nursing home is not the only option. Our purpose is to promote the independence of our clients, which is why we provide this great service enabling our clients to receive the care they need in the way that they choose.

How Much Does It Cost
