Committed to Ethical Caregiving

At Gardiner’s Homecare, providing exceptional in-home care to residents of Reading, Henley, and South Oxfordshire goes beyond just the services we offer. We are guided by a strong ethical framework that ensures fairness, respect, and integrity in all our interactions.

Personal Integrity

We expect our team members to uphold the highest ethical standards. This includes living up to our core values outlined below and acting in the best interests of our clients at all times.

Our Core Values:

Dignity & Respect

We treat all our clients, caregivers, and colleagues with dignity and respect. Fairness in our practices and decision-making is something we strive for.  We expect our team to accept and respect people’s individuality and their right to make their own decisions and choices.  Listening and communicating in an open and straightforward way is vital.  We respect confidentiality and allow people to maintain their dignity, especially during personal care.

Working together

We work together to adapt our approach for every individual and situation. Between colleagues and with clients we build two-way relationships of trust.  We empower people to make their own choices.  Together, we are a team – that means does not just mean colleagues but also clients themselves, as well as their families and others involved in their care.

Professional & Transparent

We operate with the utmost transparency and accountability.   At Gardiner’s we recognise our limits and when to seek support and advice.  Our culture is one of being open to learning and not afraid to admit mistakes or acknowledge opportunities to improve.  We are self-aware and regularly seek and reflect upon feedback from colleagues, service users, and their families.
