As we journey through life, there may come a time when we or our loved ones need some additional support and care. This does not necessarily mean moving to a residential care home or assisted living facility. In fact, research has shown that being able to remain in the comfort of your own home enables individuals to maintain their independence for longer. Here at Home Instead Bromley, Chislehurst & Orpington, we are the only home care provider for older people that has been rated Outstanding by CQC. We provide person-centred and bespoke one-to-one support from our highly trained care professionals, ensuring that you or a loved one can continue living at home while receiving the outstanding care that they need.

One of the most significant benefits of choosing home care in Bromley is the preservation of independence and familiar surroundings. Our homes are where memories are made, where we find comfort, and where we have established routines. Moving away from this environment to a care home or residential care can sometimes be a challenging transition, disrupting the sense of familiarity.

At Home Instead Bromley, our home care services are companionship-led. Our Care Professionals are there to improve you or your family member’s quality of life. They can do this by encouraging them to engage in social activities, to rekindle lost passions, and to discover new hobbies.
