How can we help?

Fourways Community Care is currently registered with The Commission for Social Care Inspection to provide services to adults of any age, with various disabilities and medical conditions. Our minimum duty is 30 minutes , but we provide care for any duty length. As we are a local company and most of our staff are local we are able to provide a safety and wellbeing check if needed at short notice to our clients.

You purchase the time not a specific task, meaning the care will adapt to your changing daily needs and preferences, we try to match our clients and carers interests, capabilities and temperaments for suitability for a successful and happy client/carer relationship. Your care is tailor made to suit your individual needs and requirements your care needs will be assessed by qualified staff and agreed by you, care needs to change as people’s needs change, we are responsive so are able to change what we provide to you accordingly. You care plan is personalised for you as an individual, it is constantly reviewed. Below is a list of some of the services we currently provide, as well as the list, as a company Fourways residential home also provides a service to our clients in the community who find it hard to get out, that service is to go out for a drive in the Fourways car to the beach/countryside/drive around the town, it is something to look forward to and is a enjoyable, sociable trip. Fourways community care and Fourways residential home also provide a summer party at the care home and in their beautiful gardens, then in the winter months a Christmas party is organised, all residents and clients of Fourways and guests are welcome to attend both. If you are coming to stay in Sidmouth for a holiday we can supply carers to come in and assist during your holiday and chosen accommodation. Carers can also accompany you on your holiday if you require. We do not charge a retainer if you have a respite/hospital/holiday stays. Just give us 24 hours notice to cancel and there is no charge.
