    Our Care Culture

    We believe that exceptional quality of care is not possible without having the core values of Bridgewater Home Care; Quality, Reliability and Trust.

    We believe that you cannot offer a quality service if you are not first and foremost reliable.  To us, being reliable is doing what we said we would do when we said we would do.  It is having a continuous focus on putting the needs and happiness of those we care for at the heart of what we do and by genuinely adding value to the day to day lives of those we care for.

    In delivering a service renowned for its reliability, trusted by health and social care professionals, we achieve our goal of being the first choice provider of care in the community.

    Quality to us is not just the high standard of care we provide.  It is an attitude and an ethos that runs through the fabric of the company.  It is the systems we use, the unmatched training we provide, and the continuous support that we provide our team which forms the success of the Bridgewater Home Care model.
