Home Instead Poole: Our mission and expertise

We believe that everyone should have the option to continue living in the comfort and familiarity of their own home, as independently as possible, for as long as possible. A wish that can be supported and fulfilled by engaging professional home care services. Our owner, Greg Harrold, expresses it perfectly: “Very often, somebody’s care journey begins with them receiving care at home for a few hours a week. People should have the choice to stay at home for as long as possible.”

This choice is important to us, it encapsulates the dignity, autonomy, and independence that we all find important as older adults. At Home Instead Poole, we do more than offer home care services; we provide a partnership, supporting older individuals to maintain their daily lives with as much normality as possible. We are rated Good by the CQC in all areas and have decades of combined experience in our team.

Live-in care or home care: your lifestyle, your routine

Our owner Greg Harrold notes, “When our live-in Care Professionals move in with clients, or a home care Care Professional begins regular visits, it doesn’t take long for them to become part of a family.” This is the heart of our approach – providing care that’s not only practical but deeply empathetic. Our Care Professionals are selected not just for their qualifications, but for their compassion and empathetic nature, ensuring that each individual feels understood and genuinely cared for.

The option of live-in care is a growing trend, reflecting a wider recognition that residential care isn’t the sole path once care needs intensify. Our live-in care allows for a continuation of routines and habits that are ingrained in an individual’s daily life. As Greg explains, “Live-in care means having the flexibility to carry on doing what you’ve always done.”

Preserving established routines, like enjoying meals at specific times, is an aspect of life that many of us take for granted. For older adults, such familiar routines provide comfort and a sense of control – and should not be underestimated in their importance to overall wellbeing.
