Our trained and experienced staff can support you in your home around the clock. Drawing on our vast knowledge of healthcare, we use evidence-based assessment tools to develop a person-centred care plan that perfectly meets your needs.
Fortify can offer support to you as and when required, ranging from 1 hour per week to multiple visits per day. We will help you meet your activities of daily living such as washing and dressing, eating and drinking, going to the bathroom, taking medication and much more.
Our companionship carers help combat social isolation and enhance well-being by spending time with you at home, visiting you in the hospital, or accompanying you to appointments and outings. We can arrange a companionship friend for you on an ad hoc or live-in basis.
The waking night service is ideal if you wake often through the night and require support for example with toileting, repositioning or administering pain relief. Our waking night carers can even perform light domestic tasks such as ironing.
Our sleeping night service is suitable for you if you require a carer's support no more than twice throughout the night. Your comfort and well-being remain our priority. We will work together to determine whether this is the ideal service for you.
Our general home care service encompasses various needs that are not covered in our other packages. This service is ideal for people who just need a bit of an extra hand with things like keeping the house clean and tidy, gardening, cooking, or other hobbies.
Complex care covers a wide spectrum of specialist healthcare and support services designed to address the intricate needs of people living with profound medical conditions, disabilities, or unique health challenges. Our nurse-led team is well-equipped and experienced in delivering comprehensive care solutions in a way that fosters the well-being, quality of life, and functional independence of those in our care. Examples of the complex care we provide are:
Our team has extensive experience in palliative and end-of-life care gained from over 10 years working in oncology in both acute hospitals and hospices. We also have expertise in chaplaincy and pastoral support, ensuring that your values and wishes are incorporated in our care. We prioritise pain and symptom management, emotional well-being, and open communication all aimed at enhancing quality of life and providing comfort guaranteeing you compassionate and dignified support during this difficult time.
We understand the unique challenges faced by individuals living with dementia, including Alzheimer's disease. With years of experience in nursing homes and elderly care wards, our dedicated team is well-versed in providing specialised care that caters to your specific needs. Our compassionate approach focuses on maintaining a safe and nurturing environment and personalised care plans that promote cognitive engagement and emotional well-being. Our focus on excellence will ensure you get the highest level of attention and support at all times.
Sometimes life catches us off-guard, leaving us or loved ones in need of unplanned care and support. Our comprehensive emergency home care service is available around the clock, every day of the week. Whether it's a sudden medical situation or an unforeseen circumstance interrupting usual care, our dedicated team is just a phone call away. You can count on our responsive service, allowing you to focus on what needs your attention the most.
Transitioning from hospital or healthcare setting back to your home requires careful attention and seamless coordination to aid your recovery and avoid failed discharge. Fortify is here for you at this crucial phase. Our team ensures that your transition is smooth, safe and tailored to your specific needs. We provide essential support to help you adjust to changes in your health condition, medications, and daily routines. We work together with other healthcare professionals involved in your care to make sure we have everything needed to prevent complications and facilitate a successful recovery..
Are you a family carer or working professional? Are you struggling to balance the demands of caregiving with your own commitments and responsibilities?
In today's fast-paced world, families often find themselves striving to strike a delicate balance between work commitments, familial responsibilities, and caregiving duties. This juggling act often leads to overwhelming stress, burnout and strained relationships.
At Fortify, we empathise with the challenges you face while caring for your loved ones and managing your own life. We're here to provide you with the essential support you need, creating time for you to take care of yourself and your other responsibilities.

Our goal is to provide you with peace of mind and the flexibility to manage your caregiving duties without compromising on your personal and working commitments.
Caring for a loved one can be both rewarding and demanding. However, it's important to take breaks to recharge and maintain your well-being.

Whether you need a short break or an extended period of time, our expert staff will step in to ensure continuity of care for your loved ones. You can rest assured that they are in capable hands, allowing you to recharge and return with renewed energy to provide the best possible care to your loved one.
