The award-winning Homemakers of Hamberley

At Hamberley Care Homes, we've reimagined the traditional role of a carer, so our residents will experience a holistic approach like no other. 

Our award-winning Homemakers are carers, housekeepers and companions, all in one person.

Our Homemakers work very closely with the Clinical Team, so they understand the specific needs of each of our residents, and can provide a continuity of care.

Homemakers are also companions - somebody to share a cup of tea with, you'll join for activities, or simply sit quietly with you.

Housekeeping is also an essential aspect of the Homemakers' role. They'll be there to ensure rooms are tidy and maintained, not just during scheduled cleans but all the time.
