The Homemakers of Hamberley

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

You won't find another care home in or around Poole offering ‘The Homemakers of Hamberley’ –  care professionals are a carer, housekeeper and companion, all in one person. Watch our video to find out more about our award-winning Homemakers: 

Our Homemakers collaborate with our Clinical Team, so they understand the needs of each of our residents, and provide a continuity of care.

Homemakers aren't just carers - they're also companions. They are somebody to share a cup of tea with, someone to join you for your daily exercise, or someone to discuss your favourite book with.

Another essential part of the Homemaker role is housekeeping. Our award-winning Homemakers will be there to ensure all rooms are maintained to the highest of standards, above and beyond scheduled cleans.

The conversations are our first steps towards building a Personalised Wellbeing Programme - our plan for ensuring residents live a fulfilled, meaningful and happy life.
