How My Home Touch founder Dr Jamie Wilson is redefining dementia care in the UK

December 20 18:54 2021
After seeing firsthand how challenging it was to find home care for dementia patients, Dr Jamie Wilson, an NHS dementia specialist, founded a game-changing platform that currently rethinks the approach to modern dementia care in the UK.

As modern dementia care and assistance lag miserably behind other conditions, My Home Touch founder is redefining the UK approach to dementia care by offering an unrivalled level of live-in care. 

HomeTouch, the UK’s leading online destination helping families to find high quality and trusted care, was founded by Dr Jamie Wilson, an NHS dementia specialist who saw how challenging it was to find home care for dementia patients and how they struggled to look for reliable live-in elderly care at home.

“People were being abandoned in their time of need, and diligent carers were underpaid and undervalued. The system just didn’t work, and the cost of live in care is extremely expensive. That’s where My Home Touch came into the picture. It sought to fill a gaping hole in the industry,” says Dr Jamie.

HomeTouch rose to the challenge to create a great live-in carer platform that handpicks the finest carers from across the UK to provide live in home help, dementia live-in care and live-in care for the elderly.

Through the years, Dr Jamie has proven the importance of private live-in care, which delivers a wide array of benefits over traditional care homes, including more freedom and flexibility and dedicated one-to-one care in a familiar setting. 

Families can tailor their loved one’s care with the game-changing platform. In the process, HomeTouch helps them obtain the best possible care for their loved ones. Families get to decide on the kind of care they want, match with a HomeTouch carer, and manage everything in one place. 

Families can see the collection of HomeTouch carers via the Carer library. In addition, they get to stay up-to-date with their loved one’s care through the Care journal.

Dr Jamie says live-in home care has been a revolutionary alternative to a care home, allowing loved ones to stay safe, healthy and independent in their own home.

Lesley, in a review on Trustpilot, says she chose HomeTouch over other companies because she could choose the carers herself from a long list of people, which allowed her to look for the right fit for their situation.

“The carer receives most of the money for the work they do so are more likely to do a better job. All these things, plus the backup of helpful office staff if there is an issue or I just need advice, means that my life is very much easier and less stressful, and my mum is happy and well cared for,” says Lesley.

HomeTouch also enjoys an excellent rating in, a leading home care reviews site, with clients lauding its overall standard, dementia care in the UK, management, and efficiency of staff. 

In a review, Doug commended HomeTouch for operating an online service that he used when other agencies providing daytime care could not provide any night care services at relatively short notice.

“The carers were very well qualified and diligent with the help and assistance they provided. Their response to my online enquiries meant that I was able to find and select two carers to fill the gap for all seven nights of week care. Their help was warm and comforting in a difficult time of transition,” Doug wrote in a review.

Meanwhile, Jef hailed the staff for taking care of his 94-year-old dad, who had six months of repeated and sustained hospital stays following short periods at home being cared for by over 30 different carers.

“The carer HomeTouch provided for us (at 12 hours notice) has been absolutely amazing the last five months, and the polar opposite of all the “care” he has received from other agencies: eating well, no health concerns, happy and contented,” Jef wrote in a separate review.
