HomeLife Carers began in 2007 with a small office in Tiverton providing care to just 7 Service Users. Today in 2019 we have four offices; Barnstaple which is North Devon’s largest provider of domiciliary care, Okehampton, Tiverton and Plymouth.

We are exceptionally proud of our teams for their dedication and support in getting HomeLife to where it is today.

Check out our facebook for more staff journeys.

A massive well done to the whole team – it really does take every single one of you to achieve such great results.

‘Staff spoke confidently about people’s specific needs and how they liked to be supported. Through our conversations with staff it was clear they were very committed and kind and compassionate towards people they supported’

These are just some of the comments made by our Service users:

“When it comes to safety, I can’t praise them highly enough. I’d recommend them to Buckingham Palace.”

“We know the staff well now they act like we are friends, always very cheery” and “They (staff) don’t just come here to do a job. They treat me as a real person with rights, needs and feelings.”
