Community Care

Flexible, quality care

Altaira cares for people of all ages and needs in the comfort and security of their own homes. We have a wide range of community care options that will suit all circumstances and budgets, ranging from 1 hour right up to 24-hour care.

It is a very flexible type of care and can be arranged for a duration and frequency to suit the client’s requirements.

We work closely with the client and their families in order to provide the personal touch they rightfully deserve and require.

Our mission is to provide continuity of care with the importance of building relationships.
