supporting you with first class care with heart-warming attention to detail and the little things always mean the most with heart-warming attention to detail and the little things always mean the most

We are a small, ambitious and independent group of home care businesses providing care to people in their own homes in Oxford and Leighton Buzzard. We pride ourselves on providing personalised and good quality care with compassion.

By being small, we can easily communicate with each other. We all know each other and we all help each other.

Yes, we are ambitious. We want to grow and we want to improve. We do not tolerate sub-standard care, we do believe in training and nurturing our staff so that their aspirations are met and so that we can provide continuity of care.  We dearly wish to play our part in improving the, often contentious, home care sector so that the elderly and disabled can live comfortably and enjoyably in their own homes for as long as possible.

Independence allows us to be nimble – we can adjust policies and procedures as we see fit without having to consult with a head office. As an example we have developed a paperless office which allows our on-call staff to access all client and rota data from their ipads and computers without having to be in the office. This allows them to provide better information to carers during evenings and weekends so that a better service can be provided to our clients.

We also provide care services to people whose care is funded by Central Bedfordshire Council, Buckinghamshire County Council and Oxfordshire County council. 


"I would like to thank you for your help during J's illness.You have very caring, kind staff. I will always be grateful for the way you looked after J. Please thank all the team who came. They did a wonderful job."
"We cannot praise your team highly enough. You all treated Mum with such respectful and loving care. We have to make mention of your lovely N. She brightened the day for all of us and Mum absolutely adored her. She is a real treasure. Please be assured that we will take every opportunity we get to recommend your team to anyone who asks."
"Thank you to all of you. I couldn’t have managed without you. "
"We would also like to thank ...... and the carers from 1st Homecare Solutions. Please accept this as a personal acknowledgement."
"Your carers are competent, kind, and compassionate. We cannot praise them enough. The family appreciate them very much. We are always glad to see them - good company as well."
"Can't see how to improve - well done!"
"Your carers brighten up what would otherwise be a long and empty day. Just keep coming!"

I am contacting you on behalf of my mother to say thank you to your staff who came out this morning to get her medication and breakfast following the difficulties her care staff had experienced in accessing the key to her flat. This flexible response to need is very much appreciated. My mother had a difficult few days when she was discharged from the nursing home until a care package could be secured. However, since your team have taken over I can see a marked improvement in her progress and, most importantly, she is very happy with the support they are providing. Given that I live at some distance from my mother the knowledge that she has such good support is very reassuring.

"Thank you for the care and support provided for my mother on her discharge from hospital. It enabled her to have a few weeks at home which is what she wanted. Both my Mum and I were very grateful for the flexibility of your service and the willingness to go the extra mile. During some of my visits I had the opportunity to observe the care provided and was impressed by the professional attitude of the carers and by their attention to dignity, respect and compassion. With so many negative aspects of care hitting the headlines it is reassuring to witness good, personalised care."
"It was his dearest wish to be able to stay at home, and your care team made it possible. Thank you for helping him keep his dignity to the end; he was a very proud man."
"To everyone at 1st Homecare (Oxford)- to the immensely kind and helpful staff in your office, and to your wonderful carers- I would like to thank you from my heart for everything you did for my sister C. You all helped her so much, particularly at the end of her life and made her feel safe and happy. I am so grateful to you, and C really loved her 1st Homecare  carers."
