Our comprehensive range of services provided by highly trained and compassionate carers, registered nurses and clinical experts in Wakefield ensures our clients receive the right care at the right time, all delivered right at home. 

Since 1945 we have been trusted by our clients and their families to provide competent and compassionate care that is focused on improving health and overall well-being – all in the safety and comfort of the place people love most, their own home.

From adults living with life-altering and complex conditions, through to older people, and couples who need home care and support with daily living, our established service means people can live more independently with an improved quality of life – for all of life.

Prestige in Wakefield provides a fully managed and regulated care at home service which means our clients, their families and our professional partners can be reassured that the care and support we provide is of the very highest quality. We are very proud that the Care Quality Commission (CQC) has rated our service as ‘Good’ reflecting our focus on high-quality service delivery.

Whether it’s accompanying you to your favourite shops at Trinity Walk or enjoying a stroll together in Thornes Park, our dedicated carers in Wakefield are there to provide support in a way that enhances your life and allows you to enjoy greater independence.


We know through our experience supporting thousands of people and their families in Wakefield and West Yorkshire, that faced with the prospect of needing long-term care and support that most people would prefer to stay in the safety, comfort and familiarity of their treasured home and not endure the disruption caused from a move away.

For many a move from home can cause much upset, worry and for some confusion. Having routines imposed on how you live, leaving your loved one, feeling isolated from family and friends or your local community are all common concerns experienced by those facing a move into a care home, specialist care setting, a hospice or facing a prolonged stay in hospital.

Staying at home with our high-quality care at home service ensures that you continue to live life your way, whilst benefiting from one-to-one care provided by a competent and compassionate carer whose focus is to improve the quality of your life and enhance well-being.

Hourly care / visiting care

Hourly care or visiting care is for those who need support with tasks of daily living or clinical care at certain times during the day. Care at home can be provided from a 30 minute visit, to as many hours/visits throughout the day you require, one day or several days of the week depending on your care and support needs. For those who have complex needs, hourly care can be provided over a 24-hour period.

Respite Care Image

For those needing a short-term arrangement after hospital discharge to rehabilitate or when a family carer needs a break from their caring duties. Respite care is also an ideal service for families who wish to assess whether care at home is the right care choice for them.

The cost of our care is dependent on the level of care and support you require. If you are receiving our hourly care service, the overall cost will be determined by the number of visits and frequency of visits to you at home. Our experts will conduct a comprehensive assessment of your needs at your home, or in Pinderfields if you are awaiting discharge to truly understand what you need and therefore how much care at home will cost.
