Country Cousins are an introductory home care agency. Our role is to match the best Country Cousin to the client. This includes the type and level of training and experience that a Cousin has, the type of personality and interests of the client and the location.

Our Country Cousins are involved in setting the care plan and support directly with the client or their representative. This is where your professionalism and knowledge of home care services comes into play. You will lead the care for the family and ensure that the entire client’s needs have been met in full. 
Should you have recommendations or think the client’s care needs has changed, you will raise these with the client or their representative directly.

As a Country Cousin you are engaged by the client to provide services, once we have introduced you.

This means that the client or their representative will pay you directly on production of an invoice at the end of your assignment.

Therefore, you will be a self-employed carer and you will need to register with the Inland Revenue. Visit the Inland Revenue website www.direct.gov.uk to find out how to register and have your questions answered.

Country Cousins offer three levels of home care, depending on your experience and relevant skills, and once you’ve been accepted as a Cousin we will discuss and agree with you as to which level you are most suited.

  • A great blessing to us

    On behalf of my brother and myself, and indeed all our family, I should like to record the debt we owe the Country Cousins who came to care for both our parents over the past 2 years. Without the help of Country Cousins, Mum and Dad could not have stayed in their own home and this they so dearly wished to do, it was a great blessing to us all that this became a reality.

  • Very professional and extremely caring

    I would like to say that the Country Cousins, who cared for my wife until she died, were very professional and extremely caring and kind during the time they were here. I would like to say thank you, at Country Cousins, for sending them in our time of need.

  • Enjoyed Country Cousins support

    I have now enjoyed the support of your Country Cousins and I would like you to know that of 6 1/2 years of having to need care, these two ladies, though very different in character, they are both splendid carers in their own way.

  • You never let us down

    Thank you to you all at Country Cousins for the support you have given us over the last four years. You have never let us down over the years, we have met some interesting and caring people. We have no hesitation in recommending you to other people.

  • Very pleased and happy in her care

    Can you kindly note that I was very happy with the Country Cousin who came to look after my mother and she was very happy in her care too. Very reassuring to know that she was in the capable hands of someone you could trust.
