Our premium care service in Lostwithiel helps older people to enjoy their lives at home as independently as possible

Premium Care in Lostwithiel

Our high quality, fully managed home care service supports people to carry on enjoying their lives as independently as possible in their own homes in Lostwithiel.

Our care can be anything from a cup of tea and a chat, to trips out and about in the local area; take a flask of tea to the Tudor bridge, visit Lanhydrock House and Gardens nearby or just pop into Lostwithiel town centre, with some caring company.

As needs change over time we can also provide more specialist services, such as Dementia Care, Parkinsons or Palliative care. We use strengths based care planning asking  “what does or would a good day look like?” and help a person to achieve this rather than just focusing on particular medical needs or frailties.

“Home Instead absolutely came to my rescue! Recommended by a family member who is a community nurse, this wonderful organisation provided the short-term support I needed after several weeks of home nursing. My husband’s health was slowly improving but it was reassuring to have a friendly and competent carer to supervise showering and, to my delight, to carry out light household tasks such as ironing. I was able to leave the house for a short while. Right from the initial home assessment visit, the process was easy, and the staff was professional, caring and friendly. Home Instead was there in our hour of need. Highly recommended – thank you.”

“Home Instead have been and continues to be fantastic carers for my mother who suffers from dementia. As I don’t live nearby it’s so important to feel that you have access to quality, empathetic and practical support on a regular basis. This is what Home Instead do so well. 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.”
