We all want to stay in the comfort and familiarity of our own homes, but when daily tasks become difficult then it’s time to call in the professionals. 

Whether you’re looking for daily support or live-in care, local home care provider Alina Homecare’s Ipswich team is gearing up for another busy year. 

Demand for their high-quality care services in people’s own homes is on the rise, accelerated by the pandemic. So Alina has moved into larger premises at the Martlesham Heath Business Park to accommodate its growing team. 

Ann Riches, registered manager, said: “Our quality services enable people to live life independently where they feel most comfortable – at home surrounded by familiar things and memories. We believe that excellent quality and respectful care is all about listening to our clients about their preferences and needs, from how they like their tea to what time they get up in the morning – it’s the importance of small details that really matters.”

One local family member said: “We’re so grateful to Alina for the care of my 91-year-old father. He’s treated with great respect, dignity and compassion. Communication and reliability have been excellent. Highly recommend the team.” 

Alina Homecare carers receive thorough training from the exclusive Alina Homecare Academy, and care is tailored to the needs of the clients they support.

As people’s needs change over time, the training adapts too, with many specialist courses undertaken including dementia and stroke care, to ensure carers deliver care that’s compassionate, respectful and specific to each person.
