If you’re looking for care that lets you or a loved one keep on enjoying life at home, then Mears can help. We believe it’s critical that you choose the care you want, when and where you want to receive it. That’s why Mears care in your home is carefully designed to reflect your wishes and your lifestyle.
All of our care services are regulated by either the Care Quality Commission, the Care Inspectorate or the Regulation and Quality Improvement Authority. This means we are inspected by an independent body on a regular basis. Mears consistently ranks amongst the best in terms of service quality.
Mears provides care for 30,000 people across the UK. All of our care workers are subject to enhanced police checks before being employed by Mears. We have a dedicated training team who ensure that all our staff receive regular training and we are committed to ensuring our workforce promote customer choice and control. Unlike other providers our home care services are designed to smoothly integrate with other elements of independent living including; healthcare, housing repairs and maintenance, aids and adaptations and telecare. This means we can offer a range of advice and solutions to helping people remain independent in their own home.
It’s not just our services that make us different; it’s our commitment to local communities which can be seen at every level of the organisation .We believe it is important for people not only to be independent in their own home but to be able to continue to be an active part of the local community. Last year our staff volunteered 22,353 hours and supported 648 community projects across the UK. We target our time on practical interventions that can make a real difference to people’s lives.
These include our commitment to tackling fuel poverty through loft clearance schemes which allow the installation of loft insulation. Tackling loneliness through our befriending scheme, improving safety in the home by checking and fitting fire alarms and reaching out to older people who are living without a family network through Christmas parties and our Heavenly Hampers Christmas delivery.
