About Us

Welcome to Home Instead Cheltenham and Cotswolds.

Amanda Hamer set up Home Instead for her area of Cheltenham and the Cotswolds within Gloucestershire, because she is passionate about helping people to stay in their own homes for as long as possible. With many people living longer, quality of life becomes key and our aim is to make those later years as comfortable, stimulating and enjoyable as they can be.

Our office is based in beautiful Cotswolds countryside at Colesbourne, just outside Cheltenham and our team is dedicated to providing the highest quality of care on a completely individual basis. Our goal is for you to see us as trusted companions and an extension of your family, whether we are accompanying you to social events, helping you with light housekeeping or assisting you with personal care needs.

We are very familiar with the towns, villages and local communities that we serve, from Tewkesbury down through Cheltenham to Cirencester and out to Bourton On The Water and beyond.

Our minimum call is one hour as we believe that quality care cannot be provided in anything less. From assistance with shopping to a day out fishing, and from help preparing meals to assistance with bathing and dressing, our CAREGivers are here to respond to your needs up to 24 hours a day.

We choose our CAREGivers for their empathy, compassion and reliability and we also look at their particular interests so that we can carefully match our clients and CAREGivers one to one. We are uncompromising in our insistence on six references for each CAREGiver who joins our team and all are fully trained by Home Instead to ensure they have the specific skills and approach we require. Our CAREGivers don't wear a uniform or have marked cars, this is for our Client's safety and peace of mind. 

Within our team we have extensive knowledge and experience in providing care to older people, including specialist care for those who've been diagnosed with forms of dementia, including Alzheimer's. Being part of an award-winning, global network of over 900 locally owned offices means that we can keep up to date with the latest research into ageing, care for older people and maintaining independence.

Many clients come to Home Instead privately however we also work with Local Authorities and Primary Care Trusts as well as organisations such as Age UK, the Alzheimer's Society and others.

If you feel we could help you, your family or someone you know, please get in touch. You can contact us for free advice at any time or pop in to the office to chat over a cup of tea.
