Banyan Home Care Services Limited

Every person on this planet is a little bit of uniqueness mixed with a little bit of magic. At Banyan Home Care Services we recognise this, therefore tailoring all of our services to meet your individual needs is our priority. At Banyan Home Care Services we deliver a variety of innovative person centred support solutions, whilst specialising in Young Onset Dementia.

These care/support packages are individualised and bespoke to each client’s interests, needs, hobbies and individuality. Using a person-centred approach we support people to continue living independently, to engage in hobbies old and new, to learn new and maintain current skills, whilst promoting choice, independence and through empowering each and every person we work with.

So, whether you need a bit of support to continue your regular activities of daily living, or you need a sidekick to help you re engage in the hobbies you used to do, we can put together a care/support plan that will help you to continue living well.

Referral Details

How do we respond to new service referrals and support requests?


Our Registered Managers take overall responsibility for co-ordinating support requests and new service referrals. They are responsible for organising care and support packages, communicating with other healthcare professionals and keeping abreast of legislative changes in the sector.

How is a new care/support package assessed?

  • A care or service manager will arrange a convenient time to visit a client in their own home for an initial care assessment, free of charge.
  • This assessment normally takes around 1 hour and includes a full risk assessment to ensure the safety and well-being of both the client and team member.
  • For clients returning home after a hospital discharge a manager can visit both the hospital ward and the clients home

What happens when care & support begins?

  • Once the initial care assessment is completed, a care or support plan will be created that is entirely unique to the individuals needs, preferences and culture to ensure the service provided is holistic and person-centred.
  • Banyan Home Care Services Registered Managers will then identify the care team member/s with the relevant skills, training, availability and of course, personality.
  • If preferred, the selected care team member/s will be introduced to the client prior to any care or support taking place.
    When the client is happy with the care team member/s selected, support will begin. Our clients should then expect to receive a call within 24 hours to check how the first shift went.
  • Thereafter, regular calls or visits will take place depending on a client’s level of needs, to monitor the early stages of support.
