London, by any standard, is one of the great cities of the world. The earliest settlement found there so far is dated to 4500 BC. The present city was founded by the Romans, abandoned in the Dark Ages but by the 11th century was a thriving city with Westminster Abbey at its heart. William the Conqueror was crowned there in 1066 and the centre of power became rooted in London. It has endured Plague, Fire and Blitz and each time has survived, rebuilt and grown stronger.
Today London has a population of thirteen million. With its many museums, libraries and galleries it is a world centre of culture and the performing arts. It has 43 universities, three of which are in the top ten in the world. Its architecture is an eclectic mixture ranging from the Tower of London (1066) to the Shard (2013). Tree-lined parks and gardens provide large areas of green space and beauty.
London is not only the capital of the United Kingdom but is also a magnet for international business, banking, and trade with every country on the planet. 14 million international tourists visit each year, drawn perhaps by history, Royal Family and shopping.
Across London OxleyCare clients receive our high quality live-in care. We have often accepted patients from London Hospitals and undertaken their further care at home, either in London or in the country. OxleyCare also provides special care to clients at the end of life. This is of enormous comfort both to the client and to their family.
OxleyCare can provide Companion Care, which can just lift the burden of daily household tasks so that the client can do the things they enjoy. Our carers will keep you company as much or as little as you require, shop and cook for you, assist with personal care and medication if necessary, drive you to social occasions and appointments or just for a change of scene - and they will take care of the household animals.
For those with memory problems or Dementia, OxleyCare aims to provide care which maximises the client’s abilities, respecting their dignity and emphasising their abilities. OxleyCare’s Respite Care allows family members or carers to take a break for a weekend, a week, or a month.
OxleyCare carers receive all mandatory training required by the Care Quality Commission and all drive and cook. Guided by the client’s wishes, they will undertake all the normal tasks of the household.
If you require live-in care services in London or elsewhere in the south of England for any reason, either for yourself or for a member of your family, then Oxley Care can help. You can contact us by calling 01980 846690 or by completing our contact form.
