Active Assistance, part of the Active Care Group, offers person-centred care in the home, either through live in or live out care packages to adults, children and younger people with a wide range of complex health conditions.
Active Assistance place people at the heart of the services we offer and design packages of care around their care needs and personal preferences. This means we are able to support a care team on a ‘live in’ or ‘live out’ basis.
We recruit staff that positively embrace our values. Their skills are re-enforced through our highly acclaimed and award-winning training programmes.
We employ a Clinical Team who supervise the service we provide, each with specialist skills and knowledge relevant to the client group we support. Our clinical experts work with the NHS, CCG’s, local authorities and other stakeholders to provide the highest quality continuing healthcare in the community. Structured, well-planned home healthcare is both safer for service users and more cost effective than hospital care.
Live in care and support
A live in Personal Assistant (PA) lives with you in your own home and allows you, or your family member, to stay in familiar surroundings with a bespoke level of one to one support so that you are able to live an independent and active life.
PA’s duties may include getting you in and out of bed, washing, dressing, cleaning, shopping, toileting and general everyday living activities, and specialist clinical tasks such as bowel management and tracheostomy care. It may also be necessary to accompany you to work, social events and appointments or even on holiday. The PA is there to help you do what you want to do, be it preparing your favourite meal, or going out shopping. You will be encouraged to do as much as you can for yourself.
“She has gone above and beyond her role as a PA whilst the client was very ill in hospital. She remained professional and it was thanks to her judgement the client recovered quickly and returned home.”
“Amanda is an excellent PA, her standards are impeccable & I can fully relax when she is with me as she anticipates all my needs. On my recent Cruise, Amanda worked very hard to ensure I had a really great holiday.”
“A very hardworking and special PA who has enriched my life and I’ve found so many new skills and activities I enjoy.”

Live out care and support
A live out Personal Assistant (PA) allows you to live in your own home within familiar surroundings with access to care delivered to the level of daily or weekly care required to meet your personal needs.
A live out Personal Assistant will work one to one, or as part of a team to support you in your own home with a bespoke level of one to one support so that you are able to live an independent and active life.
PA’s duties may include getting you in and out of bed, washing, dressing, cleaning, shopping, toileting and general everyday living activities, as well as clinical tasks such as bowel management and tracheostomy care. It may also be necessary to accompany you to work, social events and appointments or even on holiday. Or, in the case of a child, the PA may accompany to school or college and will work closely with families.
The live out PA, will work shift patterns based on your needs; days, waking nights or sleeping nights and will be recruited specifically to work with you, or perhaps work with a small number of people in a specific area of the country.
“Alex works regularly with my client and although there are many challenges in this package, he always works tirelessly to ensure my client is comfortable, calm and as happy as possible. Alex is always professional, he is hard working and takes his role very seriously.”
“P completed his induction training in July 2005 and has been working with us ever since. That is over thirteen years! He is currently a regular PA with one of my client’s and communicates very well with myself and the client. I feel this dedication to his role must be celebrated when there have been so many changes for us all. P is certainly a very valued team member and we wish him well with working with us for another 13 years."
