Putting the nursing back into care
Your Own Home Care is a nurse-led organisation and the principles of good nursing care underpin everything that we do. Our patients and clients, their families and our staff are at the heart of our work.
Our guiding principle is to treat people, both staff and clients, in such a way that we would choose for ourselves, our families and our friends. Respect, dignity and kindness are our core values and govern the way that we conduct our business.
We are passionate about providing an excellent standard of care tailored to each individual’s needs and promoting independence through support. Our offices are near Ashridge and we provide home care in Aylesbury, Tring and Leighton Buzzard.
The safety and dignity of our clients and patients is paramount. We have a rigorous recruitment process to help us find carers of the highest standard to join our team. All applicants have an enhanced DBS check and undergo full training before starting to work with our clients. We look for people who have a genuine desire to care for others, who are enthusiastic and compassionate as well as taking into account their experience and qualifications. Our carers are our most valuable asset and in addition to regular update training, we support them in their professional development so that they are equipped to provide the excellent standards of care that we pride ourselves on.
