About Us

Welcome to Home Instead Senior Care Dorchester 

Serving Dorchester, Cerne Abbas, Bere Regis, Weymouth & Portland, Wool, Lulworth, Swanage, Wareham, Broadstone, Hamworthy & Upton, Lychett Matravers and the surrounding areas.

Home Instead Dorchester is owned and operated by Romesh Dharmasingham. For the past 10 years elderly care has been my focus and passion having operated a regional residential care group for older people with nursing needs, helping to provide high quality care for those most in need. It is with this in my mind that Home Instead Dorchester was born.

The decision was influenced by my own personal experiences of the care sector. Whilst operating care homes for many years, I would frequently come across fiercely independent older people who having lived with little or no care at home, had struggled through day to day tasks with little or no support for a long time until it was necessary to seek a solution away from home. Many people do not know where to start or who to go to for advice. Those who do find some assistance may find it very difficult to find quality and consistent care. Rushed visits at home can be the norm with traditional home care providers, Different stressed carers focussing on completing set tasks rather than attending to the very real need for companionship, someone to sit and have a cup of tea and a chat. There are many that deserve so much better.

At Home instead Senior Care Dorchester it is our belief that people are best looked after where they feel the most comfortable and where they can truly trust the individuals tasked with looking after them. We believe there is a better way to provide homecare. For us, care and companionship fit together as one, in visits that last a minimum of one hour with the same CAREGiver. We believe quality care cannot be delivered in less time and without the continuity of care provided by a true companion.

Our team here are committed to delivering high quality care to older people in their own homes to help them feel happy and comfortable. We aim to provide the support they need to remain independent and in their own homes for as long as possible. Whether it’s just a listening ear to share memories with, company for a walk to the shops or park, help with house work and meals or more personal care. We provide the assurance to them and their families that they are being looked after with respect and empathy allowing them to maintain their dignity and most importantly to remain in their own home.

When I first came across a local Home Instead office I was extremely impressed to see some of the ways in which it is different from other traditional care companies:

Taking time to get to know their clients and matching CAREGIvers based on personality, hobbies and interests so they could start to form lasting relationships.

Care is not task based – it is all about the person as an individual.

Carefully selecting compassionate, friendly CAREGIvers and ensuring that they are trained to the highest standards so they support clients with confidence.

Home Instead is the only care company in the UK to have been granted the Queen’s Award for Excellence (Innovation) and to hold over 20 “Outstanding” ratings from the Care Quality Commission

It was at this point that I decided that Home Instead’s mission of aiming to be the most admired care company was one that resonated with me and mirrored my own values.

We are therefore very proud to be bringing Home Instead to the Dorchester - including the following towns and their surrounding villages - Dorchester, Cerne Abbas, Bere Regis, Weymouth & Portland, Wool, Lulworth, Swanage, Wareham, Broadstone, Hamworthy & Upton and Lychett Matravers.

We aim to provide the high quality care that we believe everyone has the right to receive. Our passion is built around our promise to create TRUST between ourselves and our clients and their families through being RESPONSIVE, RELIABLE and providing the very best TRAINED & ENGAGED CAREGivers. Our local mission is a simple one, we strive to provide truly personal care that we would want for our own loved ones – nothing less.

To us its personal and we will change the face of ageing.
