Weldmar at Home
- Weldmar at Home is the latest addition to our services, launched in July 2021, and is a team based across North, South, and West Dorset.
- We provide care to people with advanced illness in their homes.
- Our aim is to help people remain comfortable as well as assisting and supporting those important to you.
- We work alongside all other teams providing care to ensure that we work efficiently to support patients and their friends and families.
The care provided by Weldmar at Home will vary from patient to patient, to fit in with their needs and requirements.
Some people tell us that they value care overnight so that their family can rest. Others tell us that they would like a little bit of help during the day for example with washing, dressing or changing the bed sheets.
Some people want short visits of up to an hour while others find longer visits more helpful. Each care plan is individual to the person receiving it. We cannot do domestic chores such as housework or shopping, but we can try to identify services that can help with this.
Just like all of our services, the Weldmar at Home care is provided completely free of charge to you and is funded by the generosity of our local community, through donations and other support to Weldmar Hospicecare.
