Care in Wadebridge

Our supportive care in Wadebridge, Padstow and Rock allows your loved one to enjoy their life and independence while still living in their own home.

Home Instead provides premium, relationship led care for people in their own homes in Wadebridge and surrounding areas in Mid Cornwall.  Our high quality, fully managed home care service supports 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 about in the local area; enjoy looking out over the Camel Estuary, take a flask of tea to the beaches at Daymer bay or Padstow or just pop into Wadebridge town centre, with some caring company.

As needs change over time we can also provide more specialist services, such as dementia care or support with washing and dressing. 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.

“I engaged Home Instead in Wadebridge for a very close friend who was extremely poorly but was a very independent, demanding and particular character. All the carers were amazing. Very understanding, kind and considerate. They saw to all his needs with discretion, allowing him to retain his dignity. No tasks were too much for them. All office staff were very helpful and understanding as well.
I found them to be a very professional team and would have no reservation in recommending them.”

How is Home Instead Care in Wadebridge different?

  • 1-hour minimum visit time
  • All Care Professionals are fully introduced to the people they are looking after, and shadow visits used where they will help.
  • Office team coordinate between clients, their families, the caregivers, health professionals and representatives (LPOAs and friends)
  • Care plans & notes available for review on a portal for a named person if consent if provider by the person being looked after.
  • Training and Development for Caregivers to improve skills in frailty care, dementia care, Parkinson’s, and palliative care
  • We can also support with shopping, gardening and other regular household tasks.
  • Caregiving team fully employed and extensively checked on recruitment, no agency workers.
  • Proper supportive supervision and management for the Caregiving team.
  • We always ensure there is at least a 15 minute (paid) gap between scheduled visits so that Care Professionals can travel between clients without rushing or eating into their care time

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.

“Home Instead have been looking after my mum since November 2020. They have been incredibly helpful, professional and pro-active. Mum has some memory problems and knowing that someone has been in to see her every day for a chat and to check that she is OK, eating regularly and keeping warm enough has been a great relief. Home Instead were able to take her to her  appointments and have kept us up to speed with any potential issues. I would definitely recommend them.”

With the high quality, managed care service we provide, people can be helped to live their lives at home where they want to be.

Home – Concern Wadebridge

“I would like to thank all the carers who have looked after my father over the last 2 years. They enabled him to stay in his own home in Egloshalyle for as long as possible and assisted in the transition to full time care. I have no hesitation in recommending Home Instead.”
