“What would you love to do?”
Maybe you would like a Kingsway Personal Assistant (PA) to check in on you every day, have a chat, share a pot of tea or have fun cooking or making something together? Or perhaps you need to be accompanied to a hospital or GP appointment? Or possibly you just want a little fun and break in your routine with a trip to the cinema or shops? Let us know what you would love to do!
We proactively encourage and reward our team to bring fun and imagination whilst delivering companionship. We aim to match the needs and interests of each client with suitable members of the Kingsway team that may have shared interests with you. We will also rosta their work schedule so you will see the same primary or secondary PA each visit. We will introduce you to your Kingsway Personal Assistant before your care starts. By building a continuous relationship between you and your Kingsway Personal Assistant, we know they will be best placed to offer the best possible support.

If you can’t quite maintain your garden as well as you used to, we can help.We specialise in lawn maintenance, weeding, pruning, planting, path cleaning, fencing repairs & treatment and much more. We offer one-off or regular gardening services and importantly, you can get involved as much or as little as you want.
CLIENT: “I still love gardening, but I can’t do all the heavy stuff anymore. I really look forward to my weekly visits from Kingsway Care. They mow the lawn and have made some raised flower beds for me. They even deliver the heavy sacks of compost so I get stuck in planting my raised beds with veg to eat."
4. PET CARE:
We know that you love your pets and want to give them the best care possible. We can help with vet visits, walking, playing, feeding and more. Tell us how we can help and consider it done!
CLIENT: “I felt guilty not being able to take my dogs for long walks anymore, so called Kingsway Care to arrange a pet care package that included walking as well as visits to the vet. I am thrilled.”
5. MAINTENANCE & REPAIRS:
"We can fix it!"
We can arrange for our trusted maintenance & repair team to help with any jobs around the home. We know it’s difficult to find tradespeople that you can trust, especially for all those little jobs from fixing leaky taps, putting up shelves, hanging curtains or painting the house. Let us know what needs doing and we will be happy to help.
CLIENT: “Since mum was diagnosed with dementia we knew we needed to make some changes to her home. Kingsway Care were able to recommend where to put shelving and other safety measures.”

8. TRANSPORT, EXCURSIONS & HOLIDAYS:
“We're all going on a summer holiday!"
Did you know that we offer support outside your home too? Some of our clients enjoy a change of scene from time to time. Perhaps you might enjoy a visit to the cinema, or a trip to the theatre to see a pantomime, or a promenade along the seafront with an ice cream, or how about joining an afternoon tea dance? Tell us what you would love to do and we will arrange it for you.
Maybe you have something bigger in mind and you’re dreaming of a UK mini break, a foreign holiday or an overseas cruise trip of a lifetime? We can cater for any special requirements that may be overlooked by mainstream providers. We will also match you with a CareGiver to keep you company and assist you when needed.
CLIENT: “I hadn’t been on holiday for years and was desperate for a change of scene. I didn’t think it would be possible because travel insurance is so high. But Kingsway Care arranged four nights in Devon, along with Karen, their CareGiver, to look after me. I used to go there as a child and it was great to go back.”
9. HOME SAFETY:
“Peace of mind is a wonderful thing.”
We recommend technology at home to provide peace of mind and necessary safety. We can help with the installation of key safes, meaning that CareGivers can enter your house securely without bothering you. We can also help with lightweight necklace or wrist pendant alarms, meaning you can connect with a 24-hour emergency resolution centre whenever necessary.
CLIENT: “I was always worried about falling at home alone and not being able to raise help. Kingsway Care showed me the different alarms that could be worn as a pendant or on my wrist. Now I am confident help will arrive should I need it.”
10. HOME TECHNOLOGY:
“Our team of tech-savvy experts are on hand to help!”
Modern technologies are incredible and life enhancing. Equally, managing the latest devices can also be both complicated and confusing. If you need help with a repair, a replacement or simply just some friendly user advice, please let us know and our expert team can remove any stresses for you. We specialise in phones, tablets, broadband, smart home devices, televisions, radios, kitchen appliances and more.
We know keeping in touch with friends and family is important and you will need a phone and computer to do so. Our Kingsway Care team is here to support you on an ongoing basis with any tech help you need from recommending phone handsets, computers and tablets and choosing the right tariff. We can also show you how to shop online and keep you aware of scams – see Friends Against Scams www.friendsagainstscams.org.uk
CLIENT: “When my TV packed up, I just didn’t know what to buy next. My CareGiver said Kingsway Care could help. I’ve now got a Samsung Crystal UHD 4K HDR Smart TV and a subscription to Now TV. Even my grandkids are jealous!”
