To get the answer you want, simply click on the question.
First of all, contact your local authority to get a list of preferred providers for the borough. It’s a good idea to meet a few providers to see how they respond to your questions. Make sure your care worker is Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) vetted and that their first language is English. Ask for the same care worker wherever possible, as continuity is very important: at Rosemont Care, we usually allocate two care workers to you to cover illness or holidays.
All home care organisations have an inspection report on the CQC website, with ratings and quotes from people using their service.
Yes, Rosemont Care Limited is a registered company (07334693) and is registered with the Care Quality Commission. We are a member of UKHCA and fully insured. As well as working with private clients, we are also appointed by local authorities.
With offices in Essex and Medway, Rosemont Care services cover two key regions in Greater London and Medway.
e offer care services and support in your home, 24 hours a day and 365 days a year.
Yes, everyone has to undergo an intensive recruitment process and induction. Each carer has a formal interview and is then Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) vetted/checked. Carers must also job shadow a senior carer before they can work on their own.
Our aim is to ensure the same small team of care workers provides your service on a regular basis, rather than having lots of different people coming in and out of your home. Our quality assurance questionnaires and feedback from clients and other health care professionals confirm we deliver on this most important element of care. Occasionally, we may have to change your carer due to staff training or holidays. Should anything about your service change (e.g. different staff member attending), we will contact you as soon as possible.
We only recruit carers of the highest calibre and we are confident about our rigorous recruitment and interviewing procedures. We want your experience to be a positive one, so do not hesitate to contact us if you are unhappy in any way.

Absolutely. We review care needs on an on-going basis so that we can always meet your needs. We are always pleased to receive feedback and suggestions too.
If you pay privately, simply provide the required notice period to your current provider while we arrange your new care package. If you receive funding through Social Services, please ask your Social Worker for help in the matter. However, you can always engage our services by private arrangement. Please ask for details of our prices and terms.
