Quality Care Where It Matters Most – At Home

Home Instead Dorchester understands the necessity of flexible home care solutions. Whether it’s regular daily visits to provide companionship and assistance with routine activities, or a more comprehensive live-in care arrangement for those who require around-the-clock support, we are committed to delivering a high standard of care directly within the familiar and reassuring environment of your own home.

We provide home care services to the following areas; Hamworthy, Upton, Sandford, Holton Heath, Swanage, Wool, Bovington, Wareham, Dorchester, Weymouth and Purbeck District

Daily Home Visits: A Touch of Compassion

Our daily home care assistance is designed to promote your autonomy, providing support with everyday tasks such as medication reminders, personal grooming, meal preparation, and mobility assistance. These services not only uphold your physical well-being but also foster emotional health through regular social interaction, a critical component of holistic home health care.

Live-In Care: Continuous Comfort and Peace of Mind

For those with more intensive needs, our live-in care services ensure that a dedicated Care Professional is always on hand. This continuous presence provides a comforting reassurance, far beyond what occasional visits can offer, ideal for managing more complex care requirements and ensuring safety and companionship throughout the day and night.

Personalised Care Plans: Understanding Individual Needs

We believe in a personalised approach to home care, tailoring our services to fit the unique needs of each individual. This tailored care includes a wide range of in-home support services, from elderly care for those advancing in years to more targeted home health services for individuals managing chronic conditions or recovering post-hospitalisation.
