OmerCare – local care for local people

We are a family run organisation, whose interest in home care began when we were looking for someone to care for our own loved ones. We believe that it is the wish of most people to remain in familiar surroundings, filled with happy memories. We know from our own experience that it is not easy to admit that extra help is needed, and we are sensitive to the feelings of those who will be asking us for care. We have lived for most of our lives in a Hertfordshire village, and know some of the problems that arise when someone needs extra help in a rural community.

We provide home care to residents of Hertfordshire villages such as Codicote, Kimpton, Welwyn, Whitwell, Graveley and Knebworth who want to remain independent for as long as possible. We aim to treat people as we would wish to be treated ourselves, and never forget that we are guests in their homes. We aim to find carers that will suit people in terms of their personality and interests, and we hope that our carers will contribute to the social needs of our clients as well as the practical ones. We aim to provide the same carers to each client, as we know from our own experience how difficult it is to have lots of different people coming in and out of the home.

We provide care to those who are funding their own service as well as those who are funded by Direct Payments.
