Home Instead Care

Our high quality, fully managed care service supports people to carry on enjoying their lives as independently as possible in their own homes. so you can remain living in the town or village you love without losing your quality of life.

Our care can be anything from a cup of tea and a chat, to trips out and about in the local area;  take in the sights at Lanhydrock, a gentle amble through the Cardinham Woods, or just a pop into the town centre, with some caring company for full peace of mind.

As needs change over time we can also provide more specialist services, such as dementia care or support with washing and dressing. We ask ” What does or would a good day look like? ” and help a person achieve this rather than just focussing on medical needs or frailties.

“They listen to Mum’s needs, spot the changes that may mean practical readjustments and help work through managing any changes calmly and empathetically. Because of this support, Mum is able to continue to live independently and very happily in Cornwall where she grew up.

“Both of us have always found the caregivers to be patient, personable and of good humour. Duties have included; chores around the home, assisting in computer communication with family members, shopping expeditions and hospital appointments. Of huge importance, the service has provided warm and understanding human companionship, invaluable in sustaining independent living.”
