About us

Friendly Faces was set up in 2015 by Claire Northmore a registered paramedic.

During her years in the Ambulance Service, Claire witnessed the pressing need for a support service for those with a medical need and the elderly or unwell, to stay 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 3 Emergency First Aid at Work training, but it’s our attention to detail and our personalised approach that sets our service apart.

How we can help

As a registered Health Care Professional, Claire oversees the health of clients.   With knowledge of medications, illness and living with health conditions, Claire liaises with other health professionals and provides medical triage, so clients receive focused advice and support to ensure they are well informed and then directed to further appropriate health care if needed.

If you have a medical need, mobility issues or age which is catching up on you and you are not as able as you were, we can assist you with daily living tasks which you wouldn’t be able to do without support, in order to keep you living as independently as possible.  We can escort you to medical appointments and support you in doing some of the nicer things in life which you may not be able to do without support.

Dementia Know-how

Having completed a Post Grad Diploma at the University of Worcester’s Association for Dementia Studies, founder Claire Northmore offers all staff training in dementia awareness and medical triage and first aid.

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. The type of service we can provide whilst supporting daily living,  is discreet monitoring, weekly meal-planning, managing health appointments and checking whether medication has been taken.
