High-Quality Home Care in Dorchester

Keeping You Safe and Shielded With Home Instead

We provide Home Care, Live-in Care, Dementia Care and other help around the home to support the people of Dorchester, Bere Regis, Weymouth and surrounding areas around Dorchester to live a safe and shielded life in the comfort of their own home.

Here at Home Instead, we understand that it can be challenging to balance the demands of everyday life and look out for your ageing family and friends. Yet more and more of us are trying to do just that.

If you have got to a point where you are finding it challenging to continue care for your loved one while dealing with current government guidelines or your circumstances have changed, we have a team of wonderful local CAREGivers who are able to support you and your loved one at home. 

Our home care is entirely person-centred meaning that the care we provide is based on the needs of the individual and their condition, not on the needs of the service provided.

We Believe Home Care is Safe Care

Did you know that home care is one of the safest care options available?

Care at home reduces risks of infection and allows your loved one to remain safe and shielded in their home for longer.

It also allows your loved one to receive the dedicated, one to one support they require which is sometimes not possible with other types of care.

Elderly Home Care You Can Trust

Recent times have shown us that it takes a special kind of person to provide someone with genuine care and support.

We feel incredibly lucky and are very proud of the fantastic team of professional and compassionate CAREGivers we have here at Home Instead Dorchester. 

Our team of CAREGivers go above and beyond to provide honest, trustworthy, reliable home care to make a positive impact on our Client’s lives.

How to age well

Growing old can bring challenges, both for the person who’s ageing and for their family. It can be frustrating for our loved ones because they can’t do everything they used to and feel like they’re losing their independence. At the same time, it might be worrying for their family as they might not be able to be there whenever their loved ones need them.
