From Companionship to Comprehensive Care: How Home Instead Supports You Through Your Care Journey

When it comes to home care services in the Tavistock, Bude, Launceston, and Okehampton areas, Home Instead is not just another provider; we are a lifeline. While companionship remains at the core of what we do, we offer a comprehensive range of services to meet the evolving needs of our clients.

The Heart of Our Care: Relationship-Led Support and Expertise

Building meaningful relationships is fundamental to our approach. Our Care Professionals don’t just ‘pop in’; they invest time and energy to really get to know each client, understanding their likes, dislikes, history, and even their cherished memories. This emotional investment doesn’t just make our care unique; it also forms the basis for providing expert, specialised services. For instance, our Care Professionals undergo rigorous training in areas such as Dementia and Alzheimer’s care. This means that, beyond mere companionship, we can offer targeted support that addresses the specific health concerns of each individual.

Beyond Basic Needs: Personal Care and Medical Expertise

As essential as companionship is, we understand that care needs are often far more diverse and complex. That’s where our standing as a CQC-regulated provider distinguishes us from private-hired Personal Assistants. Our Care Professionals are not only rigorously trained but also regulated to provide ‘personal care’ with the utmost confidence. This includes vital aspects like moving and handling, as well as support with medications. At Home Instead, personal care is about preserving dignity while aiding with intimate tasks like washing and bathing. Whether you’re dealing with Parkinson’s or cancer, our team has the knowledge and skills to manage complex care needs effectively. This breadth of service allows us to serve our clients not just adequately, but exceptionally.

A Life Journey Approach: The Importance of Continuity

One of the most reassuring aspects of choosing Home Instead is our commitment to continuity. Care needs can evolve over time, becoming increasingly complex. We pride ourselves on being a care provider that can adapt and expand the range of services offered, ensuring you or your loved one have the right level of care at every stage of life. This avoids the stress and disruption of having to switch providers as your needs change.

The Importance of Family: Keeping Loved Ones in the Loop

With Home Instead, family members are not just spectators in the care process; they are active participants. Our office team maintains regular communication, updating you on your loved one’s wellbeing and any changes in their care plan. We believe in partnership care, where the family, the Care Professional, and the office team work in harmony to provide the best experience possible.

Expert Training: Specialised Support for Dementia and Alzheimer's

Dementia and Alzheimer’s are conditions that not only affect the person diagnosed but also their families. We offer City and Guilds accredited courses in Dementia Care, ensuring our Care Professionals are equipped with specialised skills to provide the best possible support. This level of expertise enables us to create a caring environment, keeping clients comfortable and secure in familiar surroundings.
