Why Choose us?
Total Community Care was formed in 2006 by Chris Freestone and Reg Perrins. Their ambition: to create an organisation that provided dedicated care teams for people living with spinal injuries and neurological conditions.
To this day, our ethos of putting clients first remains at the very heart of our organisation. And it’s the foundation of the first-class service we deliver.
Our client Steve Paget talks about the care he received from us in this short film.
Putting you first
We’ll find the right care team to meet your needs. We’ll work with you and your loved ones to create an individual ‘support worker team’ that can provide excellent care.
Our clients are fully involved throughout the whole process of creating a care team – meaning that you get the care you want to suit your lifestyle after injury.
