Established in 1995 by then registered nurse Julie Ward, Gentle Touch Care Services has now become the longest-standing domiciliary care company in Leyland. How things have changed  in that period of time, with the company growing from a one-person agency to becoming a busy operation with 30 staff, providing a first class domiciliary care experience for people in the South Ribble area. Julie says: “Whether you are privately funded or use direct payments, we have the services to suit you.” She adds: “Having worked alongside Social Services for more than 19 years we have the skills to create your very own Person Centred Care Package.” Julies states that many people start off with basic help around the home. And Gentle Touch’s Domestic/Home Help Services offer assistance with daily living activities and include... Domestic: Jobs including vacuuming, dusting, mopping, window cleaning, ironing, washing/laundry, changing bed linen. Shopping: Assistance with shopping for weekly groceries, accompanied or unaccompanied, including putting it all away afterwards. Companionship: Conversation support, sitting services to allow family members, relatives and loved ones vital time to themselves. Gentle Touch’s Personal Care Services often follow on when Home Help Services are not enough any more. These include... Personal Care: Washing, bathing, showering, dressing or undressing, continence care and assistance with hair and make-up. Medication Management: Blister packs, original packaging, eye drops, ear drops, controlled medication, pain patches, creams. Home From Hospital: Short-term, intensive support, re-enablement and home from hospital support. Care is tailored to the individual’s needs every time. Julie said: “We have many different types of care and support so each service is assessed individually, ensuring you have exactly the correct care package you require.” Gentle Touch is recognised by the Care Quality Commission, the independent regulator of health and social care in England, and Investors in People. Julie added: “We also specialise in services for disabled people, older people and can provide end-of-life packages. “People tell us they feel well looked after by our staff – they trust us. And our staff are respectful of them and their homes.” Gentle Touch is big on family values and staff always treat clients with respect. The company always strives to offer value for money and services which are reliable and responsive to a person’s needs. Julie is proud of her hard-working team and adds: “We guarantee to turn up.”
