What support do you offer people with physical disabilities?

The type of home care we provide could vary considerably depending on the needs of the individual and on their abilities. Our caring and compassionate team are happy to get involved in any type of domiciliary care, from helping out with meal preparation, running errands and dealing with medication, right through to just popping in to offer a friendly “hello” and a familiar face.

Our home care services include

Companionship, a chat and a friendly smile

According to Sense, half of disabled people say they are lonely, and one in four feel lonely every day. Loneliness among disabled people is a critical issue, and reducing social isolation is incredibly important to us at Casterbridge Home Care. We understand the crucial role we have to play in offering companionship; someone to pop in and say hello, check to make sure all is well, play a game or have a cup of tea and a chat.


Help with washing, dressing and personal care

Whether you would like help with personal care, provide assistance with getting out of bed, bathing or simply someone to lend a hand if needed, our home care team are here to help meet your needs.

Cooking and serving meals

We’ll work with the person we are caring for (and their family) to determine how much help is required for meal preparation. We will tailor the support to the needs of every individual, from helping with menu choices and assisting in the kitchen, right through to serving and offering help and support to eat for those that need it.


Help with domestic and housekeeping tasks

Our home care team is more than happy to provide support with domestic and housekeeping tasks, from cleaning and washing dishes to changing beds and doing the laundry. We will aim to involve the people we support where appropriate, encouraging a sense of independence and building confidence and a sense of purpose around completing day-to-day tasks.

Running errands and shopping

Our home care team offers support with running errands and visiting the shops. Whether you need assistance with going out, overcoming physical access barriers such as high shelving or inaccessible shop layouts, or would simply like to help to shop online, our team is happy to help.


Help with collecting and taking medication
