Home Care Portsmouth

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

People who use our service often tell us that having been independent all of their lives, it's just not as easy as it once was to get everything done. Whilst family, neighbours, and friends are supportive, they value being able to schedule home care visits around their daily routine decreasing their dependence on the kindness of family members.

Having a friendly face popping in each day to help them maintain their independence and keep their homes clean and running well has allowed them to get back to enjoying the things that matter to them.

Family members tell us that they feel reassured by the real-time information available on our digital care app, birdie, which provides them with insights and updates that they can monitor remotely.

Our carers are on hand to help your loved one rise in the morning. They can help your loved one to have a shower or bath and help them choose what they want to wear that day. A good cup of tea usually comes as standard, along with medication checks and breakfast.

Whether your loved one chooses something simple for lunch or a home cooked meal for tea, our carers can provide them with a meal along with medication prompts and checks.

Our carers can grab the essentials or do a full week’s shop, either with your loved one or on their behalf. They can also clean and tidy your loved one’s home and ensure that the laundry and ironing are done.

Should your loved one want to visit friends and family, go to the cinema, or go for a walk around the shops, our carers can be there to accompany them.

The service our carers provide can be just as much about you as it is to your loved one. Our carers can keep your loved one company during times when you have other commitments or simply need a break.

Come the end of the day our carers will be there to assist your loved one with their bedtime routine. This might include a quick wash, final medication checks and prompts, and ensuring doors and windows are locked on leaving.

For times when your loved ones require someone to be on hand through the night or just to be there for peace of mind, our carers can provide an overnight visit usually between the hours of 10pm to 7am.

We understand the challenges that can be faced when your loved one is living with Dementia. We train our carers to be aware and considerate of the effects of Dementia. This enables our carers to deliver a care service that is safe and respectful whilst providing support and guidance to you.

The usual step when the time comes that our loved ones require a high level of care is to start considering residential care, such as a care home. However, live-in care services are fast becoming popular, and in most cases cheaper, alternatives. Whether it's short-term whilst they adjust to coming home after a hospital stay, or long-term to offer companionship and regular support in their own home.

We facilitate a number of social groups for adults with physical disabilities and the elderly in community settings. This enables them to socialise and provides respite for family members.

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"
