About Us

We feel that it is important for our parents to:

  • Enjoy the stability and familiarity that comes with long term relationships with a carer or companion
  • Achieve good value for money with no hidden surprises.
  • Receive care that places equal importance on mental as much as physical wellbeing – a happy, stimulated and mentally alert person being able to enjoy a superior quality of life.

Heritage Independent Living is much more than a business – it is a passion to do the right thing – to find carers and companions who we would feel comfortable looking after our own parents, for the benefit of others.

What’s different and why us?

Tailored

Wouldn’t it make sense that if you liked gardening, then your carer / companion was knowledgeable and liked gardening too? We think so and hence that is why we go out of our way to understand the client’s exact needs and not only find the carer with the right experience but one that has a compatible outlook in life – where common interests might include: animals/pets, theatre, opera, gardening, cricket, excursions (for example, where a carer as a car driver could help with visits to stately homes, garden centres and trips to the countryside).

We also appreciate that it is a difficult decision to choose the right care solution and that you need time to understand all your options. We are available to chat and help you come to the right conclusion and we are always willing and flexible to help you tailor a solution.

Long Term

We do our very best to ensure you get the best person for you and your lifestyle and then we do our utmost to get that person to stay with you.

This may seem like an obvious approach but it is not what drives many of our competitors – in fact some will only commit to placing one carer / companion for a maximum of 3 weeks.

At Heritage Independent Living, we are here for you for the long term and we can help provide you with a tailored journey of domestic help, companionship and specific personal care.

Furthermore our pricing reflects our philosophy of encouraging long term relationships to the benefit of our clients; the Heritage Independent Living fee reduces over time. Please click here to see Heritage Terms and Conditions.

Recruitment Excellence

We understand that what is affordable for one person may not be affordable for another. However, by focussing on recruitment excellence and taking time to fully understand your family needs, we can help you create an optimum solution; providing the best carers at an appropriate price.
