We’ve been providing care services for people in Wolverhampton since 1994, and we understand that there is no such thing as “one size fits all” when it comes to care at home. Whether it is Dementia, Parkinson's or elderly care, every person is different and each package of care we provide is different.
We provide integrated home support packages for people with a wide range of abilities. Whether you would like support to visit friends, get out and about, or support in your home, we can provide a care package that suits your needs.
Personal Care Support
We are experienced in supporting people with their personal care needs ensuring dignity is kept at all times and helping you keep as much independence as possible.
We recognise managing medications can be a challenge, let us help.
What do you enjoy doing?
We focus on promoting independence, we encourage you to continue carrying out the general tasks that you have always done but recognise this may not always be possible.
Shopping & Meal Preparation
We believe you are what you eat, food & drink should be more than just a routine.

Paying for Services
Personal Independence PaymentPersonal Independence Payment (PIP) helps with some of the extra costs caused by long-term ill-health or a disability. It is paid to people aged 16 to 64 who have been assessed as having difficulties with mobility (going out and moving around) &/or activities related to daily living.
Self-FundersIf you are funding your own care, our staff can assist with budgeting based on your personal requirements. Alternatively, you or someone on your behalf, can access helpful information at www.payingforcare.org, a non-profitable organisation who provide on online advisor.
Direct PaymentsYou may be eligible to receive Direct (cash) payments from your Local Authority, depending upon your financial situation. Your Local Authority will carry out a means test to see if you qualify for this kind of funding. In some circumstances, you may be asked to make a contribution towards the service provision. You can choose to employ your own carer or use a local provider if you do not want to have the responsibility of being an employer. Carers are also able to receive Direct Payments, though spouses and close relatives who live in the same household do not usually receive Direct Payments unless the Local Authority agrees that this will best meet your needs. The Local Authority will monitor the money that is being spent on providing services for you. If you opt to employ your own carer, Woodford are more than happy to provide consultancy services to you free of charge.
FamiliesSimilar to self-funders, Woodford staff are available to discuss with family members budgeting requirements based on the level of support required by your loved one. However, if you prefer to seek advice from an outside source, you can access information at www.payingforcare.org, a non-profitable organisation who provide online advice about how to pay for care and support service.
Health BudgetsIf you already have access to a Health Budget via your GP or local Primary Care Trust, there may be some services we can provide that could be paid for from this. Examples include, rehabilitation, short-term intensive social support in relation to post-stroke care, mobility assistance, physiotherapy or occupational therapy services.
