Growing old can bring challenges, both for the person who’s ageing and for their family. It can be frustrating for our loved ones because they can’t do everything they used to and feel like they’re losing their independence. At the same time, it might be worrying for their family as they might not be able to be there whenever their loved ones need them.

Rebecca and I would like to introduce ourselves as the new owners of Home Instead Taunton and West Somerset. We are very privileged to be taking on a business that has been nurtured, loved and shaped by Noel and Vanessa. The outstanding level of care they have provided, is testament to their hard work and commitment, and we very much hope to continue that legacy. Both myself and Rebecca have backgrounds as GP’s; I have taken on various roles within general practice over the years, whilst Rebecca has more recently qualified having switched to medicine from a career in the BBC. Working in healthcare has taught us both how essential it is for people to be supported in their own homes to remain safe and well. Often it is not medicine that heals or provides the answer, but rather having the right person-centred social support and care in place. We are passionate and enthusiastic about building relationships, so that we can ensure our service continues to meet and exceed the needs and ex
‘I took my client for a drive to my horses where we fed them apples, Tilly my Shetland was very fond of her! Then we went for a lovely drive in the countryside, the sun was so nice! Off we ventured to Monkton Elm Garden Centre and enjoyed a lovely lunch. After lunch we picked some plants to go in the garden (they looked so beautiful!). We then popped into town and we went to Mr Miles tea room. I treated us to a very yummy cream tea! We’ve had the best day and as my client says “us girls know how to have fun!” Don’t know about you, but we're a little bit envious!
Valentine’s is a day to express your love for the people you care about most. All of us here at Home Instead want wish our clients and CAREGivers a very happy Valentines. Did you know, according to the Greeting Card Association, an estimated 145 million Valentine’s Day cards are sent each year, making Valentine’s Day the second largest card-sending holiday of the year!! (Christmas just beats it!). We wanted to do more than just send a card for CAREGivers and Clients. Available from the office is a little something to sweeten their day! We’ve also created a health and wellbeing board for our CAREGivers, with donations from our local Mind UK office. May you all feel the warmth of love and plenty of appreciation this Valentine’s day.
We just had to share this utterly amazing story of one of our very special CAREGivers, Allie, and her very special family. Her grandson has just been awarded a medal by a national children’s charity for being especially brave and resilient. He has been named ‘Little Trooper of the Month’ by the charity Little Troopers after undergoing brain surgery just before Christmas. It all started with severe headaches and back pain. In 2019 he was diagnosed with Chiari Malformation, a condition that means the brain tissue was extending into his spine. His Dad works in the RAF and like all military personnel, his Dad once had to return home early from an overseas deployment after he developed sepsis and ended up in hospital. In 2020, the headaches got worse and the family was told that surgery was the only hope of stopping the pain. He had decompression surgery three weeks ago at Southampton Hospital where surgeons removed part of his brain and some bone to open up a passage so Cer
