We are a licensed agency to deliver home care services in the Algarve. Our caring and experienced staff share our passion to support independent living.
We offer a unique service of tailored care visits from a few hours a week to full 24/7 support.
Whether you need our help just for few hours, overnight, 24/7 or a holiday, we are determined to care for your loved ones and help them live as independently as possible.
We provide care and assistance for people who need help in their daily living, due to temporary or long-term illness. Our services include:
Personal care - Assistance with a ‘good morning’ start to the day and daily hygiene; help with bathing, washing, hygiene, shaving and oral care; assistance with dressing; help with continence care; mobility: transferring, walking and assistance with mechanical aids;
Meals - Preparation of food and drink, Serving and Clearing Away; preparation of future meals;

Housekeeping - Undertaking domestic tasks such as light cleaning, either on a regular basis or as a ‘spring clean’, whatever the season; washing, folding and ironing clothes; drop-off and pick-up dry cleaning; organize and clean wardrobes; care of house plants; assist with pets; shop and/or escort for supplies; oversee home deliveries; supervise home maintenance.
Companionship and entertainment - We all know that when we are less able to get out and about loneliness can often set in, especially as we grow older. One of our goals is to bring fulfillment and happiness to those living at home and ease the loneliness that ageing seems to cause by providing quality support. We aim to prevent depression and help them regain control of their lives as much as possible.
Night care - Provision of care services through the night for those people who need them. This can either be on a ‘sleeper night’ basis, where the care worker expects a reasonable night's sleep but is on hand for emergencies, or a ‘waking night’ where the care worker is on duty throughout the night;
Mobility equipment and home adaptations - A thoughtfully designed “safe” living environment will help your family member stay independent for as long as possible. Decreased mobility is a normal part of aging for many older people. At first it might be more difficult to reach or bend, then negotiating stairs or getting into the bathtub may become a challenge. We have available for sale or hire the best equipment to help you in your daily tasks. We can also visit your home and suggest the necessary adaptations to keep your home a safe environment.

We liaise with health professionals and district nursing teams so that together we can provide the best possible well-being and keep pain under control. Services are planned and regularly evaluated to ensure that we meet each individual patient's needs and that they receive the highest quality and most appropriate care.
We can help you choose the most suitable health professionals within the following specialties:
General Practice / Family Medicine

Dementia and Alzheimer's care - Dementia cannot be cured, although there are ways of alleviating symptoms. We Care, Teach, Train has extensive experience of helping those with dementia to lead a full life. When a person with dementia finds that their mental abilities are declining, they often feel vulnerable and in need of reassurance and support. We have signed a partnership agreement with Alzheimer Portugal which is the leading organization in Portugal to offer support to people with dementia.We can help, by providing carers who are highly trained in delivering personalized support – helping to retain a sense of identity and feelings of self-worth. There are several different forms of dementia and it affects people in different ways. That is why it is so important that each customer receives good professional service plus respect and kindness.
We are licensed by and registered with the Social Services (Segurança Social), which regulates, inspects and reviews all adult social care services in the public, private and voluntary sectors in Portugal.
We value network with partners in the social area and this is why we belong to municipal workgroups that discuss local social issues. We have established partnership protocols with several institutions, namely Alzheimer Portugal, the leading organisation in Portugal to offer support to people with dementia.
All these institutions have high quality standards, which set out how we should operate and help us to deliver an exceptional level of care.
We also carry Public Liability insurance. Our carers are experienced and qualified workers who have been submitted to strict recruitment procedure. We have sourced the best suppliers on the market and can offer advice on various kinds of mobility equipment and living aids.
