What we can do for your loved ones, and you or your loved ones
We provide a high quality of Care, support and companionship in or out of the home. We will also help set up any financial entitlements that could pay for, or contribute towards, the needs of your loved one - preventing loneliness and isolation
Intervention and Prevention is better than cure, and the relationship we have with our service users allows us to recognise the signs of ill health and act quickly, avoiding the upset of hospitalisation where possible.
The services we offer will provide the emotional and practical support to maximise health and well-being, ensuring you or your loved one can remain living at home and in the community for longer.
Many people are unaware of the benefits they can claim to help to pay for support - we can ensure any financial entitlements are rightfully awarded by helping you or your loved ones with form filling and correspondence, maximising the support available to make life enjoyable.
We are companions and carers
All 'Home from Home Care Dorset' representatives have age and experience on their side - we expect the best and only take on the best.
