Kemble at Home

Kemble at Home is a family-run firm with a strong local community base. Sharon and Michael King set up Kemble care in 1993 and today their son Peter King leads the business. Kemble at Home has grown - in size and reputation - through the recommendations of professionals and existing clients. We now provide services to several hundred people in Herefordshire and parts of Monmouthshire. We take great pride in the exceptional quality of care and support delivered by our staff to a wide variety of individuals who all share one ambition - to remain independent in their own home for as long as possible. We believe maintaining independence and exercising choice and control in the decisions that affect our lives are key to our wellbeing, at any stage in life, and this drives us to continuously review what we do to make sure we are providing a truly client centred service.​

1. Action Plan

1. The National Dementia Declaration lists seven outcomes that the DAA are seeking to achieve for people with dementia and their carers. How would you describe your organisation’s role in delivering better outcomes for people with dementia and their carers?

Our ability to offer the highest possible quality service rests upon the quality of our staff and the support they receive from us. We provide all our employees with up-to-date and in-depth training. Before they even begin their roles in the community, our staff are already highly skilled in many aspects of adult care. They attend talks and training courses in specific areas such as Communicating with Dementia Sufferers and Palliative Care.

We also offer information to the people we care for and their families on local events, which enables people with dementia to engage with the community. We also work closely with other organisations specialising in dementia care.

2. What are the challenges to delivering these outcomes from the perspective of your organisation?

The challenges we encounter in delivering the best care to our clients are the complexity of dementia and the fact that no person is the same, hence a different approach is required with every client.
