A Better Life
Altogether Care is a family-owned and operated business, rooted in the Dorset and South Somerset community for over 30 years. We see our clients as an extended family. So we work hard to understand the ‘real you’ and put your wellbeing, quality of life and independence at the centre of everything we do. Our aim is to help you live as independently as possible with the peace of mind that professional care and support is always there when you need it.
We recognise that the most important people after our clients, are our front line care providers who support them. With care providers employed across our care services throughout the South West, we know that they are the key to our success, and the core of our business. In addition to our care providers, our founders and the management team all work closely together, and all of whom have multiple years’ experience within the care sector.
We are always looking to expand our team who are passionate about what they do. Available roles include care and support workers, registered nurses, administrators, and chefs. Whatever your vocation, we would love to welcome you to the Altogether Care family!
