High quality, premium care for older people in Fowey

We provide the highest quality, relationship led care for people in Fowey, Golant and Lostwithiel.

At Home Instead we provide premium, relationship led homecare for older people in their own homes in Fowey, Golant and Lostwithiel. Our high quality, fully managed care service enables people to carry on enjoying their lives as independently as possible in their own homes.

Our care can be anything from a cup of tea and a chat, to trips out and as needs rise we can provide more specialist dementia care and/or help 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.

“I simply cannot speak highly enough of every aspect of the Home Instead service.
Every caregiver gave a fantastic service and made my parents feel safe, comfortable and like friends.
The support team were super efficient, friendly to deal with and helpful at all times.
My whole family has felt like they could trust the care given and also mix in a positive way with caregivers when we were in my parent’s home. This was so important to us.
I can’t thank everyone concerned enough. They all very much went that extra mile on a regular basis.”

How is Home Instead in Fowey different?

  • 1-hour minimum visit length. If Booked for an hour, we are there for 60 minutes and never clip visits short to allow travel to the next call.
  • All Caregivers fully introduced to the people they are looking after, and shadow visits organised where needed.
  • Office team carefully coordinate between clients, their families, the caregivers, health professionals and representatives (LPOAs and friends)
  • Care plans & notes available on a portal for a named person if consent given by the client.
  • Training and Development for Caregivers to improve skills.
  • We can help organise things like gardening or shopping.
  • Caregiving team fully employed and extensively checked on recruitment.
  • Proper supportive supervision and management for the Caregiving team.
  • 15 minute or more gaps between visits scheduled and paid so Caregivers have time to travel without rushing.
  • Detailed strengths based care planning based on a persons wishes and needs
  • The ‘mum test’ – we only recruit caring compassionate people we would be happy to look after our own mums and dads.
“From the very first phone call, this company have been an absolute pleasure to deal with.
Great communication and efficiency from the office staff and the carers are kind, friendly, patient and courteous.
My dad really looks forward to their visits and tells me all about his trips out with them.
Originally this was just going to be an arrangement to assist with showering, but, over time has become so much more and has totally enriched his life.
I cannot fault this fantastic company and would strongly recommend it to anyone considering having help for themselves or family members.”

We charge a set monthly fee depending on the weekly hours needed. This includes everything – Caregiver time, travel, training, introductions, support from the office. The only extras would be specific expenses incurred for the client e.g. shopping which are passed on at cost. Mileage with the client or for a client (to collect a prescription for example) is charged at 45p.

Visits typically range from 4 hours a week to 1 – 3 hours a day. We can do longer visits though if needed and often take people for trips out.

Overlooking the beautiful harbour, the town of Fowey is a wonderful place to live. In the summer the town is filled with visitors and events such as Fowey Royal Regatta. The Fowey River fleet of wooden boats can be seen with their pretty, colourful sails bobbing about with the elegant Troys in Fowey Harbour. In May we have the Fowey Festival of Arts and Literature. During the quieter winter months we still have events with the Christmas Market and Fowey Food week.

The Community Centre at Squires Field have a memory cafe meeting on alternate Thursdays from 2 – 4 pm + lots of other senior friendly activities.
