Launched 10 years ago by Philip Maundrill and Philip Wright-Howarth, Unique Senior Care aims to learn from the Directors personal experience of providing care for loved ones that needed specialist care. They wanted to create a unique service that consistently put ‘people above all else’ and ensured, the health and wellbeing of the people they supported was at the heart of the service.
Our elderly care services are designed to assist you with making your life easier, like helping you get up in the morning, preparing a nutritious meal, some light house-keeping, assisting with medication – as well as supporting you to attend a social or sporting event in your locality or just to do things that you enjoy and may find a little more challenging now.

What makes us different?
We arrive when you expect us – on time.
We will never send a stranger, and where possible, we will send the same person.
Our standards are uncompromising, and we are very proud of our reputation for providing an outstanding service.
100% of our Carers are PCR tested for COVID-19 every week.
Our view is quality care cannot be provided in 15 or 30 minutes – so our minimum call duration is 1 hour.
We do not ask our staff to wear uniforms – so they just look like a family member or friend when out with our clients.
Our Live-in care service enables our clients to remain living where they want ie their own home.

Live-in and 24 hour Care
Having recognised that you or a loved one may require more care and support than an hourly service would cover, nursing or residential care may not be the only option available to you.
Managed by Nikki, our fully managed live-in care service, is able to provide around the clock support for your loved one – enabling them to remain in the comfort of their own home, surrounded by the things that are important to them.
Our directly employed, experienced live-in carer will get to know you and your loved ones routine, and focus on their needs, retaining as much of their independence as possible, whilst ensuring care and support is available when it is needed.
With Unique Senior Live-in Care, you will not need to worry about a thing! We take responsibility for all the day to day issues included carer pay, holiday cover and any unexpected absence. Live-in care can also be a very cost effective alternative to a nursing home or residential care – particularly where a couple both need support.
Whatever help and support you think you require, give us a call, we’re here to help. Call us on 0178 920 4040
Hourly Homecare Visits in and around Stratford upon Avon
Quite often, the elderly may not feel ready for visiting care, but they do show signs of requiring more help around the house, and this is where we can be on hand to help with our home help service.
So, if some hoovering, cleaning, shopping or a spring clean will help, our friendly team can be on hand to provide some domestic assistance to keep your home looking lovely.
Our Companionship service is at the heart of our service and perfectly matches our ‘People, above all else’ culture. All too often, the elderly can suffer from loneliness and self-isolation – which can seriously affect their health and well-being.
A few visits a week for companionship and social interaction, or to assist with attending a family event or occasion can make all the difference to the well-being of your loved one. You can relax in the knowledge that all of our carers are fully insured to provide transportation.
We are here to provide assistance as and when required and to support with day to day tasks such as getting dressed, washed, and remembering to take the correct medication can be challenging for the elderly or those with disabilities.
Personal care is just that: it’s personal, and that is why everyone of our care packages is tailored to meet our clients needs.
Our aim is to support our clients to remain in their own home and help them to live independent fulfilling lives.
A diagnosis of dementia can be devastating and life changing to family members and life altering to their loved ones and understanding and managing the changes in your loved one’s behaviour and demeanor can be hugely worrying and distressing.
Our visiting hourly and live-in carers are fully trained in managing the needs of our clients who are living with dementia. We will support you and work with your GP, District Nurse and wider health support team to ensure any behavioural changes are noted and where necessary the care plan reviewed as required.
Being a main carer brings significant responsibilities, upset and challenges – and we fully understand how difficult this can be. Respite can provide much needed, temporary support to enable you to benefit from a short break from the demands of providing care for a loved one.
Our Respite service can give you an hours break in the day, a few hours, or a sleeping overnight, or we can provide a full-time live-in carer for a week or two.
Palliative/end of life care
When faced with the need for palliative or end of life care, we fully understand that this can be a very emotional and distressing time for families, and we are very experienced at providing the specialist support and help at the time you need it most!
Our carers receive specialist end of life training and are compassionate, kind and patient. We can provide one-to-one care including support with medication, meal preparation, personal care or simply doing some household chores.
We want you to be able to spend time with your loved one and will work alongside other agencies to ensure the correct level of home care is in place for your loved one and their personal circumstances.
Unique Senior Care have significant experience in providing person-centred, domiciliary and live-in care options for people living with specialist and complex conditions ie Parkinsons, Learning Disabilities, Autsim, Dementia, Parkinson’s, Multiple Sclerosis or have suffered a Stroke
Whilst you or your loved one may have a specialist need, this may not mean that you or they cannot remain living at home. Our expert carers can provide all the specialist care and support to enable you to remain living at home and avoid the need to move into a care home.
