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.
There’s no place like home and at Home Instead Yeovil, Sherborne and Bridport we believe that continuing to live at home in the place you feel most comfortable, safe and happy is the best solution as you age.

Local caregiver goes out of her way to show client the Spitfire flyby, a World War Two veteran, when she took him to see the Spitfire flyby at Yeovil Hospital. Gill took Dennis to the top floor of a Yeovil Hospital car park to see the much-awaited Spitfire fly over; he was thrilled! Dennis was in tears at the sight and sound of the Spitfire, a plane he had always adored. 96-year-old Dennis, who receives home care from Home Instead, served in the Royal Air Force in the Second World War and has a lifelong passion for aeroplanes. He frequently recalls stories of his days in the force to his caregiver, Gill Saxton, reliving his fond memories. He frequently flew twin engine planes in his RAF career as a pilot, but always yearned to fly a Spitfire. The Spitfire flyby was organised by the Aircraft Restoration Organisation as part of the ‘Clap for Carers’ initiative, celebrating the work of NHS and caring staff during the nationwide lockdown. Dennis’s son said: “This small gesture of kindness has had longer-lasting effects on Dad, we can see the positive change in his wellbeing as he has appeared brightened up and happier during our phone calls. Many thanks to the Home Instead team for making this happen!” Gill commented: “It was so lovely to see Dennis cheered up by the Spitfire flyby and I’m so happy I got to take him. Dennis is always talking about his days in the RAF and the flyby was a brilliant way to bring back fond memories. He has even asked me for photos of the plane to put in his scrapbook and up on his noticeboard to remember the event. I love the opportunities I get as a caregiver to make my clients smile and make a positive impact!” Home Instead Yeovil, Sherborne and Bridgport provides a range of high-quality personalised home care services in the Somerset area, from housework and companionship, to specialist dementia care.
