About Us

PillarCare have been helping people live as independently as possible in their own homes throughout London and the UK since 1999. We are an award winning service; our dedication to truly caring for each and every service user has been recognised by our own service users and industry professionals.

Our mission – person centred care

Knowing we are making a positive difference to peoples' lives drives all of us here at PillarCare. We are committed to delivering the highest standards of care without losing a personal connection to those we care for. Helping people to remain in their homes, living their lives how they wish, informs both our management and carer teams and we hold the individual at the heart of what we do. Person centred care means that we work with each individual, encouraging full participation in delivering the right care for you.

And unlike some other companies, we stay in touch. Our friendly, experienced care managers and staff supervisors are always on call and are committed to ensuring that we are there for you when you need us. People’s lives change, and we are always flexible, working with you to respond quickly to changes in your circumstances. We are always happy to talk – we know sometimes things are clearer after speaking to someone with experience. We understand care, and you understand what you need.

Obligation-free assessment from our care professionals

Your local team of care managers are on call 24/7 to answer your questions and work with you to design a customised plan of care that is right for you.
