Meaning of our name and logo
Just in case you are wondering, this is how we decided on our company name and our business logo design.
Altruism + Trust = Altrust
Altruism – The belief in or practice of disinterested and selfless concern for the well-being of others
Trust – The state of being responsible for someone or something
Altas – Logo signifies Atlas, the Greek mythological God who is symbolised holding the heavens above his shoulders
Altrust Home Help is a local independent company operating in Lytham, Southport, Liverpool and the Wirral supporting people in the surrounding areas. We are slightly different to other care agencies and offer a traditional home help service with independent living and companionship at its heart. Our services cover domestic and social support together with respite and holiday reassurance. We can support people at any time of the day or night, 365 days a year.
The service was set up by a care manager with over twenty years experience who recognised the need for home help that didn’t involve personal care and was more geared towards support and interaction. From going shopping and tidying up the garden to social engagements and laundry, people need help to maintain their lifestyles in an enjoyable and dignified way, but the right services weren’t previously there. Altrust thus began to fill this need, and has gone from strength to strength ever since.
Altrust provide staff to visit and support clients with tasks that have become more difficult, as well as offering companionship. They don’t take over, and the people they visit remain fully in charge of their own lives. We encourage people to maintain their independence, and that is what our service is all about. It does not include personal care, but is instead focused on quality of life. We understand the importance of being able to maintain and develop independence as well as having choice and control over decisions and the respect of those around us.
All our staff are fully vetted with enhanced DBS checks, references and interviews. What’s more, you can expect the same member of staff on each visit. This is a huge part of what separates Altrust from similar services in the area. You will know exactly who to expect, and can get to know the staff member instead of being constantly presented with someone new.
Altrust Home Help is here to assist from just one hour a week to several visits a day, or for someone to assist and keep you company full time. We offer a little extra help to enable you to live life the way you want to in a caring and sensitive manner.
We are committed to provide the highest level of support to our clients. We work with them to develop the very best personal support plan to assist them to keep their independence and dignity.
