Our client’s Flexicare Housing schemes are specifically for people aged 55+ who may require personal care. Their tenants live in a self contained flat and maintain their independence whilst having use of communal facilities.

The Care Workers work flexibly to respond to the needs of residents at all times. They enable and encourage service users to care for and undertake practical tasks for themselves so that the highest levels of independence are achieved.

Our client’s people have a great attitude; they are innovative, collaborative and are empowered to make change happen; in other words they are basically brilliant…
