The organisation will be delivering up to 400 hours a week of home care services to people across the Dartmouth area of the South Hams district over the course of the following year.
Administered by teams of Sanctuary Home Care’s skilled community carers, the service delivers set hours of care directly to people’s homes to help them remain independent.
Community carers can assist with domestic cleaning, shopping, pension and prescription collection and a large number of other tasks that can help people to live independently in their own homes.
Dartmouth’s location, in the south-east area of the district, means a number of clients live in rural, and traditionally more isolated, locations.
Sanctuary Home Care managing director Chris Munday said: “This contract is a great opportunity for Sanctuary Home Care to expand our existing first-rate services in Torbay and provide that same high level of service to a wider area across the South West.”
The one-year contract will see Sanctuary Home Care expand its presence in Devon from its closest branch in Torbay.
Local service manager Jodie Fielding, who will be heading up the home care team, said: “People in rural communities can be traditionally hard to reach for home care provision.
“This service will provide our clients with the reliable schedule of care they need to live independently.”
