Family Carers: How Home Instead Poole Can Support You

Discover how Home Instead Poole supports our local clients and their family caregivers with tailored visiting home care and live-in care services, & local resource connections

Supporting those who care for their older relatives is an incredibly important part of what we do at Home Instead Poole. We recognise that family caregivers pour an incredible amount of love and energy into supporting their older adults. The value of some extra support at home, can provide the opportunity to recharge, and accessing local community resources can also support the well-being of both a family carer and our clients.

A circle of care 

Caring for an older adult often comes with its challenges. It can become all-consuming and can also be physically and emotionally draining. Our Care Professionals and the dedicated office team at Home Instead in Poole, can provide excellent care to our older adults, while also allowing family caregivers to have the respite to rest and recharge, and expert support they need for peace of mind.

Our home care service is like an extra trusted pair of hands, holding the fort while family members take a well-deserved break. For us and our team it’s about passion and a genuine commitment to making a meaningful difference in people’s lives in our local area. Whether it’s helping with daily tasks and routines, offering companionship, or personal care, our Care Professionals are there to support every step of the way.

Local community support

In Poole, we understand that family caregivers also need a network of support outside the immediate circle of care. That’s why we also signpost families to local organisations such as Carer Support Dorset, an incredible local lifeline, offering a variety of tailored services to fit your needs as a carer. This includes a friendly chat on the phone, a befriending service, and specific support for young carers, reflective of the breadth and depth of caregiving across the community.

Connecting with Carer Support Dorset, and similar organisations – such as CRISP from the Bournemouth Christchurch & Poole Council, Leonardo Trust, Rethink Dorset Carers Service, the Dorset Carers Hub and teams from the NHS and University Hospitals Dorset –  brings integration and a holistic approach to care. We’re all part of a community that values and recognises the incredible work of unpaid carers.
