Caring for someone is mentally and physically demanding. You may need additional help or some downtime from your caring duties. Our fully trained Care Support Workers can step in to support you as much or as little as you want, whether it’s occasional help or something more regular.

Find out more below on how you can take a break.


Ruth, our Care Support Worker, is featured here with Freda who has regained her independence and dignity from her illness and below is what her daughter had to say about the services we provided. Ruth has 13 years’ experience in caring for the elderly and speaks excellent English and Portuguese.

When my mother suffered stroke, I knew something had to be done after the struggle of juggling her care and my job. I contacted Harrow Carers, who were very helpful to discuss all the options that were available for mum, and I found them to be so reassuring and supportive”. “I had no doubt that live-in-care would be the right option for my mother. They chose a lovely carer for mum who was not only able to provide her with support she needed but who shared some of the same interests as her which meant they hit off pretty much straight away”.

Freda's Daughter

Geraldine, is a carer for her son Paul. Joseph, our care support worker, allows Geraldine time to herself to do other things outside of being responsible for Paul and allows her to take a break from her responsibilities.
