Premium, Supportive Care Solutions with Home Instead in Fowey, Wadebridge, St Austell, Lostwithiel and Bodmin
In simple terms Care Solutions is set monthly billing. Rather than charging for the exact number of hours of care delivered in a month, we charge a set fee per month. This is calculated by taking the hours of care per week X the hourly charge X 52 divided by 12.
This helps families budget and also they are able to compare our costs to the alternatives of a residential or nursing home or live in care.

With Home Instead there is so much more than the hour of care delivery. We put a great deal of effort into recruiting the right people at the start. Rather than selling a job, we look for people who we think will fit the role, but who will also value it and stay with us so we can invest in training and development.
The extra training and development we do, can be from practical care tasks such as administering eye drops or using a piece of equipment to help with moving and positioning to Dementia care or Palliative care and support.
We introduce each Caregiver to the people they are looking after and make extensive use of shadow visits, where they work alongside someone experienced with the particular person. This can be to build skills and confidence or where a care routine was more involved.
The office care team in Par Moor help coordinate between the Caregivers, the person we are looking after, their families and other care professionals. Medications may need reordering, or shopping managed or there may be an issue with the property.
Helping coordinate managing these often small issues is essential for a person to be well supported at home. There is so much more to Home Instead than just task based care and rushing onto the next client.
In the Mid Cornwall office covering St Austell, Bodmin, Tywardreath, Par, Fowey, Lostwithiel and Wadebridge, we schedule and pay for 15 minute gaps (or more if needed) between visits so a caregiver has plenty of time to travel.
With Home Instead in Mid Cornwall, older people can be looked after, and enjoy their lives at home where they want to be. Our Care Solutions are often much better value than the costs of a residential or nursing home and for many people can bring about a better outcome.
