Our aim is to enable individuals to remain and be supported in the comfort of their own home.
We are a domiciliary care service based in the Borough of Poole, offering specialist at-home care and support to older individuals. We understand that many older people who need that bit of extra help want to stay at home in their own familiar surroundings, where they can remain as independent as possible. Our compassionate care teams will go the extra mile to ensure you or your loved one receives the support and encouragement needed to continue living independently at home.
Services and support
Our care services are entirely tailored to the individual’s needs. We provide memory support and dementia care services as well as personal care including washing, bathing and medicine administration. We also offer accompaniment services to and from G.P, hospital and dentist appointments, and assistance with light domestic duties and household tasks. All the members of our care team receive regular specialist training to ensure that they are up-to-date with good care practice, including the latest techniques in supporting people living with different forms of dementia.
How we can help
At Specialist Care at Home we pride ourselves on sustaining the high levels of excellent care recognised to gain the contract with the Borough of Poole Local Authority, to provide home care, domestic and social support. The Borough of Poole have authorised officers who refer all individuals to our service.
All individuals referred will usually be older people aged 65 years or over, residents of the Borough of Poole, and assessed by social workers as requiring supported care at home. We also work with those individuals in need of care services who are self-funding, so you are more than welcome to come to us directly to arrange care at home. Referral to our private care service is predominately through word of mouth or recommendation from care professionals.
We provide care and support services between the hours of 7am and 10pm, seven days a week and our office is open from 8am until 5pm Monday to Friday.
