About us

How Devon Home Care started

The service that was to become Devon Home Care was started more than twenty years ago by husband and wife team, Trevor and Shirley. They wanted to establish a company in Devon that provided a better, more personal service that met the needs of those who not only needed care in their own homes, but also wanted to feel part of deciding how and when – and by whom – that care should be provided. Whilst Shirley has now retired from taking an active part in the business, she still takes a keen interest in its day to day operation.

Trevor however remains fully engaged as the company’s Chairman and Managing Director. Coming from an extensive marketing and management career working in both the public and private sectors, and for three major charities, Trevor has seen many changes in the provision of home care services and has been at the forefront of representing the industry in the past as a chairman of the Devon Independent Care Providers Association.

Devon Home Care has more than 20 years of experience in serving Devon and is committed to providing the very best in private home care services. With our team of trained and registered carers we are amongst the most experienced and capable home care providers in Devon. We regularly hold training and discussion meetings with all our staff and are constantly reviewing our policies and procedures to make sure we can offer first class home care services.

A few words from the founder

“I’m very proud of the Devon Home Care Team. Every day they bring not only care but comfort, companionship and a sense of belonging to our growing number of clients, but always with that personal touch that means so much to each person we call upon.

With the constant debate about our ageing population, the cost of care continuously rising against decreasing funds from government at every level, and the concern about those providing our care, I’m confident that we at Devon Home Care have got it right. Quite simply, we care. We care for our clients.

We care for them in both senses of the word, we care about them and we provide care for them.

And we do it well and to the best of our abilities. Elsewhere on this website you will see comments and tesimonials from both our clients and from the Care Quality Commission inspector and they, I hope, go just a little way to explaining why I’m so proud of our team, and of Devon Home Care. Because that is what we do. We care”
