Supporting families to care for older adults in North Bristol

Discover how Home Instead Bristol North supports family carers by offering compassionate care for their loved ones and a local office with an expert team.

At Home Instead Bristol North, we understand the enormous dedication of family caregivers, and also the challenges that come with this role. That’s why we’re committed to supporting families with the utmost professionalism, care and empathy, helping them in their roles of caring for older adult relatives.

“Like having another family member helping out”

We believe that one reason our team at Home Instead Bristol North stands out, is not just the practical support we provide, but the sense of partnership we foster with families in our local community.

A cousin of one of our clients shared their heartfelt appreciation, explaining, 

"We are more than happy to recommend the services provided by Home Instead (Bristol North).

In the six years we have been using them, their staff have consistently surprised us with the levels of professionalism and care shown, to the extent that at times, it's been like having another family member helping out."

Gently introducing support from Care Professionals

Accepting care at home from outside of the family can sometimes be challenging for older adults, particularly those who value their independence, or may not fully understand their need (or the family caregiver’s need) for additional support. 

We believe in respecting every individual’s choice and lifestyle. One family member shared their experience with us, saying,

Gently introducing support from Care Professionals

"I was anxious about introducing care providers to my late Mum. She didn't realise she had dementia, was fiercely independent and didn't consider she needed any outside support.

Home Instead (Bristol North) provided fantastic advice on how to gently introduce support, without compromising what Mum wanted for herself, and I was astonished at how quickly and happily she accepted the new regime."

Seek out support locally

As part of our comprehensive approach, we value the support of our community, and at Home Instead Bristol North we often signpost our clients and families to resources, groups, and information available in our local area. One such organisation is The Bristol Dementia Action Alliance, this incredible organisation works tirelessly to turn Bristol into a “Dementia Aware Community,” promoting a good quality of life and independence for people with dementia.

We understand family caregivers’ dedication, commitment and sacrifices. It is essential for family carers to be able to take some time for respite, to rejuvenate, and to maintain their own well-being. Having some time to step away, time out or even a short break to do something different, is a vital aspect of a sustainable care plan for everyone.

Home Instead’s visiting Care Professionals and our local expert office team are here to support local families. Together, we can create a supportive environment that enables older adults to live happily and healthily in their own homes.
