Live Your Best Family Life!

Home Instead provide support and respite for Family Carers in Bristol West, Portishead, Nailsea and across North Somerset.

Home Instead works with the whole family in mind, and professional care can fit alongside the support your family already provide.

As a company that supports older people in their own homes, Home Instead sees countless families across Bristol West and North Somerset in a desperate state as they seek to give their loved one the best life possible. Sadly, that often leads to compromising on their own welfare. Home Instead is keen to stop this from happening and is providing family carers with the tools and knowledge to prevent them from reaching burnout.While our absolute priority is the care for your loved one – we also aim to relieve your stress, giving you peace of mind that they are cared for while giving you all the priceless gift of quality time together as a family. Time to create the memories you will cherish.

Well matched Home Instead carers provide companionship, home-help or personal care, through one-hour visits on a consistent basis, building an empathetic relationship with the client. You get to know and trust our care professionals.

Last autumn, our Take Care campaign got coverage in the Daily Mail, highlighting how relatives and friends often struggle with their responsibilities. The challenge can feel daunting and put pressure on wider family relationships. Our hope is to enable the best life for you all as a family.

When any of our family members need help, it’s only natural to support them as best we can. But the truth is that with other commitments, such as work and parental responsibilities, there’s only so much we can all do. Sadly, many of us push ourselves to the detriment of our own life and health. You can only care for someone properly if you’re physically and mentally well yourself.

So it is important to understand what help is out there for you.

When families come to us, they often don’t know what they’re entitled to or what their options are but we’re here to help and advise – working with families to establish the best solution for them.

That might mean getting help from a home care company, and since your loved one won’t need to move from their beloved home, it means minimum disruption for everyone involved.

With the right home care company, it will feel like you’ve got additional members of the family helping out. It means being able to spend more quality time with loved ones; something which all of you have earned.

A typical Home Instead success story is the Jones family. Mr Eric Jones (82) has been caring for his 79 year old wife June, who has dementia. However he has just had a hip operation so is struggling now, and needs to also focus on his own recuperation. Despite working full-time and having two children of school age, their daughter Jo has been visiting most days to cook a meal and help around the house.

We alleviated the pressure they were all under and Home Instead has made a massive difference not only to the day to day life of June and Eric but three generations of the family. So in various ways our once a day visits have benefitted at least half a dozen people!

We like to think that we have enhanced their relationship with their loved ones and allowed them to be family members rather than carers, improving the whole family’s well-being and outlook on life.

In fact you could say our carer has almost become part of the family!
