Home Care Portsmouth

Nightingales are here to provide your loved one the best possible home care in Portsmouth.

We understand your situation

After being independent all their life, your loved one can no longer manage on their own like they used to. You want to help them as much as you can, but the situation is becoming worse.

They need more attention to keep them safe, but with many other responsibilities pulling on you; work, family life - as much as you want to, you just can’t give them the level of support they now need.

You feel bad about this, and it's not an easy decision, but it’s got to the point where the level of care necessary to keep your loved one safe and happy is beyond your capabilities alone.

We're here to make things better

We understand having to come to terms with this can be difficult, we’ve helped many families in Portsmouth facing similar circumstances over the years who have felt the same. But we’ve found in the long run taking the brave step to reach out for help is the best thing you can do, especially for your loved one. It’s much safer, stress levels are reduced, and you can get back to being a family member and friend again, rather than being their carer.

Albert & His Daughter Sarah

"It is a little short of two years that Nightingales took on Albert’s care at very short notice. Throughout the time he was so grateful for the care everyone gave him, frequently telling visitors that he ‘could not ask for better’. As his health declined it was very reassuring, both to him and us, that the same group of carers were with him on such a regular basis as they had come to...

...know his likes and disliked so well.

There was kindly banter, which he loved, but also real practical and professional care, evidenced by his skin integrity right to the end, not always easy to maintain in the elderly.

I was enormously touched by the gentle way Jagoda and Sam washed and settled Dad on his last evening, it was clear that he was calm and very comfortable, one could not ask for more.

Thank you doesn’t really cover what you have all helped us achieve which was to fulfil Albert’s wish to remain at home, able to enjoy his view of the sea, surrounded by his books, pictures and the memories of a lifetime.

With our heartfelt thanks,

- Sarah"

“Why should deciding to get help with care mean my loved one gets any less of a quality of care than I would give myself?”

We strongly believe that shouldn’t be the case.  We believe that all services should pass the 'Mum Test', a service that we would be happy for our own mums to receive. If the service isn't good enough for our loved ones, then it's not good enough for our customers.

Our home care service will ensure this level of care by:

Continuity of Staff

Providing continuity of staff and visit times - Making sure that we send the same person at a regular time to build a trusting relationship and establish a routine

Quality Care Staff

Providing professional and highly trained staff - Our staff will care for your loved ones in the safest, most dignified way possible

Taking Our Time

Taking the time to talk to your loved ones, not just rushing in and out


Supporting your loved one to do things for themselves, so that they maintain their independence


Promoting choice so that your loved one can still wear that favourite hat or eat their favourite dinner


Respect and dignity for your loved one is our core value. We practice 'The Mum Test'

Regular Contact

Providing prompt updates of changes - We regularly contact family members to inform them if we have concerns about their loved one's well-being, or if there is anything that we think they should be aware of

Attention to Detail

We know that the little details are important to the quality of life of your loved one such as knowing the time they like to get up in the morning, remembering how they take their tea and even what cup they like it in

It's easy to start with Nightingales
