Dorchester’s Find a Carer service helps care seekers connect with experienced home help care providers who can provide high-quality home care, at an affordable price. Our Care Advisors can help you with your care needs assessment, create a shortlist of potential home care agencies in the Dorchester area, and arrange for you to view your preferred homes, if you wish.
In addition to providing assistance with everyday tasks, private elderly care providers offer companionship, safety supervision and support with a range of emotional issues. Our carers can accompany your loved one on walks around Borough Gardens or the historic buildings at Dorset County Museum, drive them to appointments with a doctor or a GP, and help with meal preparation and shopping. They can also provide medication reminders and assist with bathing and dressing.
Our home help care services are a popular alternative to moving into a residential care home in Dorchester, or for family members who want to keep their elderly loved ones at home for as long as possible. Unlike nursing homes, home care agencies charge on an hourly basis and allow care seekers to choose their own carers, ensuring that they have a suitable match with their personality and care requirements. This gives individuals the opportunity to build a relationship with their carer and ensures that they always have a trusted supporter available. Moreover, home help care is cheaper than residential care and provides care seekers with the peace of mind that they are being looked after by a highly-qualified caregiver. Find a Carer Dorchester
