Carers Trust Thames is a leading provider of high quality services for carers and the people they care for. We want every carer to be recognised, supported and offered services that help them maintain their own health and wellbeing, and we pride ourselves on providing the special quality of care that gives carers peace of mind.
We employ fully trained Care Support Workers who visit clients’ homes on a regular basis, relieving the primary carer and allowing them some time out to take a break or pursue their own interests. This respite enables the carer to continue with their supportive role, and the person with care needs can remain living in their own home for as long as possible.
Carers Trust Thames currently operates in Hillingdon, Hounslow and Ealing, as well as Buckinghamshire and Milton Keynes. We have volunteer opportunities at all of our sites.
Many of our services are free for the customer – funded by social care budgets, grants and contracts – however we also support self-funded clients. Carers Trust Thames is a charity, meaning any profit that we make is reinvested into our services so that we can continue to provide high quality support to carers and the people they care for.
Please note that Carers Trust Thames is the new name for Crossroads Care Bucks, Milton Keynes & Hillingdon. We will continue to deliver the dependable, high quality service that Crossroads Care has been known for over the past 30 years, under a new name that better reflects our work as part of the Carers Trust network.
