We are a family run, CQC registered care provider supporting people in need within the Hertfordshire localities. After a successful 30 years span in the care sector, Treena Greany found herself seeking home care input for her mum. Whilst there were many well-known companies to choose from, it became apparent that the level of care on offer was not meeting her expectations and in areas, had an adverse effect on her mum’s mental health and physical wellbeing.
From speaking to friends and relatives, she found this was an all too familiar situation and many others had similar stories to tell. With this in mind and her previous experience in the care sector, Treena founded her own care company with the sole aim of providing a reliable, trusted service delivered in the way she wanted for her mum.
We now deliver over 2,000 hours of care a week and are proud to still retain the same core values that led to our conception.

What can we support with?
We can support you with a whole range of tasks totally bespoke to you. This list is extensive, and we would provide recommendations during your assessment.
What package is right for you?
Your package of care will constantly evolve. Your needs today may be different to your needs in a year. As you and your situation changes, we will be on-hand to respond to those changes.
I need a live-in carer. Can you help?
We can provide a bespoke 24-hour, 7 day a week Carer living in your home to support with a range of tasks. We can commence care within 24 hours of your initial enquiry, sooner if required.
What does your hourly pop-in support include?
It generally includes 30 minutes to an hour of support at an agreed time to support with meal-prep, eating, washing and dressing.
Do you offer day sits?
We typically offer support that is provided in blocks of 4 hours or more. During this time, your Carer would provide support based on the tailored care-plan devised after your assessment. This plan of care is flexible so you will be able to dictate changes in agreed care.
Do you cover nights as well?
Often, your Carer will sleep during the night and be available to provide care as and when required during the night. If your care needs require constant observation, we can also provide a Carer who will stay awake during the night. Usually, a waking or sleep-in night is from 9pm – 7am although this can change depending on your requirements.
