Allowing you to remain healthy, happy and active

At Westmorland Homecare, we provide a wide range of services that will allow you to remain healthy, happy and active. With our extensive experience in healthcare we understand the need to remain in your own home preventing unnecessary hospital admissions and illness. We believe that staff who are well trained, compassionate and supported provide the best service so you can live life to the full.

Our service has been set up with our central office in Kendal where we undertake all our training and development. This gives us a wonderful base to serve the whole of the South Lakes region including;

  • Kendal
  • Windermere
  • Staveley
  • Ambleside
  • Grange over Sands
  • Grasmere
  • Holme
  • Hawkshead
  • Milnthorpe
  • And the many other smaller rural communities

Every client will have a tailor made care package that is decided by them. Our care manager will spend time with each client before the service begins to get to know them personally and make sure they have a personal care plan written exactly the way they want it. This will detail the client’s wishes, preferences, needs and aspirations. Our visits can be booked from 3 hours per week to 24 hours per day. Our services can be split into three main categories as shown below. You can have any different combination of services in the same visit. We have also included some examples of the types of things we can help with in each category but it is important to note that the list is not exhaustive and if you would like something specific please just ask.
