At Compassion First Care we pride ourselves on the standard of care that we deliver. We believe that it is our attention to detail that sets us apart from any other company. Our clients needs and wishes are continuously maintained through close contact and our quality assurance processes. We are regulated by the Care Quality Commission (CQC).
Our service offering is of an exceptionally high standard, with an experienced and professional team of health carers who work closely with all our customers to deliver quality support in accordance with the individual's needs and agreed support plan.
For some families, care homes provide everything that’s required and are seen as a safe environment for their loved ones where they can have constant access to the support that they need. However, the comfort and familiarity of being at home is often overlooked as an option. This is where the benefits of domiciliary care can be seen.
One of the main benefits of domiciliary care is that it provides a substantial level of support without impacting on your loved one’s independence. Our flexible and unique care plans can also accommodate for existing routines and special circumstances, which means minimal upheaval or changes to your existing schedule.
The welfare benefits system is full of complex and technical rules, it can be very scary for a claimant to be told they are going to lose the benefits that they have become reliant on. If your payments have been reduced or refused, we can help you stand up for yourself and receive what you are entitled to. We have a specialist team experienced conducting benefit appeals.
Compassion First Care can help you by writing your appeal submissions to the First Tier Appeal Tribunal and a Review (known as a Mandatory Reconsideration) to the Department for Work and Pensions. A review is where you are simply asking the DWP to look again at the decision.
A little extra money can go a long way. You can use it in any way you like to meet your needs and stay independent in your own home. The money doesn’t have to be spent on a carer.
There are some other upsides to Attendance Allowance too:
Personal Independence Payment (PIP) is extra money to help you with everyday life if you’ve an illness, disability or mental health condition.
You can get it on top of Employment and Support Allowance or other benefits. Your income, savings, and whether you’re working or not don't affect your eligibility.
You may be eligible for PIP if you’re aged between 16 and 64 and need help with daily living activities or getting around, or both. If you’re awarded PIP before you’re 65, you’ll continue to receive it after age 65. You can still make a claim if you’re working.
