Manager Hayley Russell comments:
Our branch in Launceston opened in 2012. We provide care in Launceston and the surrounding villages including Ladycross, North Petherwin, Week St Mary, Boyton, South Petherwin, Polyphant, Altarnun, Lifton and Lewdown. We cover Callington and its surrounding villages also.
Our community is very important to us. As a branch, we plan lots of events every year to raise money for different charities. We regularly invite our clients, and the wider community, to attend coffee mornings and cake sales in our office.
As a branch, we are passionate about providing high-quality care that is tailored to the individual needs of the people we support. Our dedicated carers will visit you in your own home and will support you with tasks that you may require help with. This can include personal care, food preparation or domestic support.
We can provide anything from a shopping visit once a week to support with personal care several times a day. We can also help you to access your community and can accompany you to visit local places of interest such as Roadford Lake, Kit Hill, local farm shops or garden centres. Whatever you require we will provide a care package to suit your individual needs.
"There was a positive culture within the team and staff told us they were well supported by their managers."
"To one and all at Westcountry Home Care,
Many thanks for all your help and support over the past 2 years. Things did not always go to plan and sometimes a little difficult but I cannot fault the support, kindness and care you gave to .... and me.
All those little chats and words of encouragement were just as important as the soap and flannel.
We could not have done it without you. .... Thanks for everything."
We are actively recruiting for new staff in our Launceston office, find out more here.
As part of their annual get-together, some of the Launceston team met up recently for an afternoon tea.
Some of our Launceston team recently took part in a 'Pretty Muddy' event. Getting totally soaked and covered in mud, they managed to raise £300 for Cancer Research. Well done team!
