About us

Friendly Faces was set up in 2015 by Claire Northmore after 15 years as a registered paramedic.

During her years in the Ambulance Service, Claire witnessed the pressing need for a support service to help the elderly or unwell stay living where they wanted to be – in their own home. 

Today Claire employs a growing team of support workers from within and outside the industry. Staff are handpicked by her and carefully ‘paired up’ with regular clients so that strong bonds of friendship and trust can develop over time. All staff are DBS-checked and receive Level 2 Emergency First Aid at Work training, but it’s our attention to detail and our personalised approach that sets our service apart.

The ultimate support and companionship service

With our handpicked, multi-talented staff we can help you enjoy the simple pleasures of life, from home-cooked healthy meals, to country walks or a leisurely chat over coffee. We can also lighten the load of everyday chores such as household admin, shopping or attending medical appointments. If you’re returning home from hospital we can help settle you back in or if you’re a fulltime carer yourself, we can provide a regular ‘sitting service’ so you can take a break. 

Dementia Know-how

Having recently completed a course at the University of Worcester’s Association for Dementia Studies, founder Claire Northmore offers all staff training in dementia awareness and basic safety techniques.

For those living with dementia, a change in their home environment or daily routine can be very disorientating. So, with the right practical and professional help in place, continuing to live at home can be the best possible solution.

A significant number of our clients are living with some form of dementia, from short-term memory problems to anxiety and compulsive behaviours. Our staff can provide invaluable services such as discreet monitoring, weekly meal-planning, managing health appointments and checking whether medication has been taken.
