Caring for the elderly in their own homes.

Older person with home carer

The assistance we can provide may be something as simple as taking the person shopping, or doing their housework for them once a week; it may involve helping them on a daily basis with meal preparation or personal care; or it may encompass full-time live-in support, seven days a week.


Most homecare providers specialise in either daily visiting care or weekly live-in care. Audley Homecare offers a fully managed homecare service, comprising both daily visiting care and full-time live-in care.


From our Head Office in Little Chesterford, we offer daily visiting care within a 10 mile radius of Saffron Walden, which covers the district of Uttlesford , as well as the fringes of South Cambridgeshire, North East Hertfordshire and South West Suffolk.


We also offer 24-hour live-in care throughout Essex, Cambridgeshire, Suffolk, Hertfordshire and Bedfordshire.

Visiting Care and Live-in Care – What are the differences?

  • Visiting care – Your loved one doesn’t have to have visiting care every day, or even at the same time every day
  • Visiting care – With visiting care, your loved one may receive up to 3 separate visits on any given day, typically between the hours of 7am and 9pm
  • Visiting care – The main emphasis with visiting care is on accomplishing a pre-arranged set of tasks, such as washing, dressing and food preparation, within a pre-agreed timescale
  • Visiting care – With visiting care the care staff have a regular “round” of visits to a small group of clients at pre-arranged times.
  • Visiting care – There is less scope to be flexible and change timings and activities from one day to the next
  • Visiting care – Visiting care is arranged by the hour
  • Visiting care – Our visiting care service is within a 10 mile radius of Saffron Walden
  • Live-in care – With live-in care, a care assistant moves in with your loved one in order to keep them safe 24 hours a day 
  • Live-in care – The emphasis with live-in care is on providing all-round care, support and companionship 
  • Live-in care –  A specialist provider will be able to provide live-in care for whatever period is required, from as short a period as a week. Shorter periods of live-in care than a week will fall into the separate category of “overnight care”
  • Live-in care – Because it is full-time, 24-hour live-in care involves a greater financial outlay than daily visiting care 
  • Live-in care –  Visiting care will usually only offer an interim solution, whereas 24-hour, live-in care is often a viable long-term alternative to residential care
  • Live-in care –  Our live-in care service covers Essex, Cambridgeshire, Hertfordshire, Bedfordshire and Suffolk
