For many people, the question of needing a little help doesn't arise until, suddenly, there is a need and, most of us think that the only choice is to either live self-sufficiently (without help) in our own familiar surroundings or then 'going into a residential care home'.
Ethical Homecare offer a realistic alternative to allow people to stay in the home they love, continuing to enjoy their life around, family and friends.
We work closely with you and your family, carers, social services and other health care professionals, to ensure that you receive the support that you want and deserve.
Ethical Homecare provides a range of live-in and visiting care services to clients in Leeds. Our clients are primarily the elderly, the disabled, people with mental health issues and those convalescing from illness or accident. Our carers can provide a wide variety of services, as required, to meet the needs of individual clients.
We provide care to a wide range of adults - irrespective of race, gender, colour, disability or sexuality. Our staff are also from a wide range of cultural backgrounds and are given specialist training on diversity and cultural awareness.

Assisting with ‘starting the day’. Help to get up, wash / shower / bath, get dressed and have breakfast.
We can go shopping, either taking our customer out with us or, alternatively, we can come in, agree a shopping list, go to the shops, come back and put it all away!
We can prepare food and drink.
We can make sure we prompt medication when it is due.
We can do domestic tasks like cleaning, laundry ironing either on a regular basis or as a ‘spring clean’ (even if it is in the autumn!)
We can provide a respite service. Where a member of the family is your principal carer but there may be a need for relief to allow that person time for themselves, maybe a couple of times a week.
Some people like to have a pampering session once or twice a week. A nice bath and then clean clothes, a changed bed and a nice meal before bedtime. Bliss!
We provide care services through the night for those people who need them. This can either be on a ‘sleeper night’ basis, where the care worker expects a reasonable night's sleep, but, is on hand for emergencies. Or a ‘waking night’ where the care worker is on duty throughout the night.
This is only a selection of the things we can do.
If you don't see something you would like, please ask.
All our staff are fully trained, experienced and police checked. We are also registered with the CQC (Care Quality Commission) and are listed in the Leeds Directory.
