Our commitment to providing a reliable quality service

We are committed to providing a reliable quality service and to the health and wellbeing of each person we visit. Whether it is simply being able to stay behind your own front door to enjoy the comforts of home; or getting out and about, support and care at home is an increasingly popular option that has a positive effect on health and wellness.  We will work with you to develop a plan that is best suited to you and that achieves the outcomes you want.

Trained, reliable staff who care about you
All staff members are police and reference checked and undergo rigorous induction training. Most hold, or are working towards an NVQ (now ‘QCF’)qualification in health & social care and are supported every step of the way by our management team. They are caring individuals who have your best interests at heart.

Directly Employed Staff
This means that you relieved of the worry of paying wages, being insured, etc. As an employer, Bridge Care Services takes care of all employment concerns and ensures that you will never be left without care because of illness, holidays, etc.

Experience
Bridge Care Services has a long and successful history of working with both Social Services and private clients. We are proud of the fact that our support has enabled many people to remain at home and enjoy the independence and comfort that this affords.

How can we help?

We provide these services to anybody over the age of 18 living in the Stockport area. While many of our clients are over the age of 65, we also support young adults with disabilities in their homes and in the community.

“Your staff were excellent- they made Arthur as comfortable as possible, and he was always appreciative of their attention. It was nice to see them not only doing their work, but taking the time to talk to Arthur. Their presence and attention made me feel easier.”

“Thank you for the dedicated care and attention that ‘carers’ and your ‘office team’ have given over the years”

“I would like to thank you all for the love and excellent care you gave my mum. I always felt that mum was being really well cared for whilst I was at work and that all of the carers genuinely cared for my mum. Thanks so much”

“I would lie to thank you all for all the kindness and care you gave my Dad whilst you were caring for him.He could be very difficult and hard work at times but not once did I hear any of his carers complain. I would like to thank all of you for always being there to support me as well. I always felt I had a good rapport with his carers, they would always help me in any way they could. I would recommend ‘Bridge Care’ to anyone requiring help at home”
