Visiting and live-in care in Portsmouth

With a rich maritime heritage, Portsmouth was once considered “The World’s Greatest Naval Port”, and its history can be traced back to Roman Britain. It is also the United Kingdom’s only island city, being situated primarily on Portsea Island. With a busy naval base and a football club who share the name ‘Pompey’, there is lots to do in this coastal city situated in South Hampshire.

Depending on your home care needs, we can offer visiting care and live-in care  services to our customers in and around Portsmouth. With care from just 30 minutes a week, we are well-placed to support you fully, and if you need a more constant level of care or would appreciate more companionship, your carer can live-in with you around the clock. Whichever type of support you choose to receive, you are guaranteed the highest levels of care from our compassionate carers who are the very heart of our business.

Jenna Murray

Meet Jenna Murray, our Branch Care Manager, Portsmouth

"Hello, I’m Jenna and I’m the Branch Manager for Cosham. I have overall responsibility for the service delivery in my area and for ensuring all of our customers are given the highest quality of care possible by my fantastic team of carers." Jenna was born in Portsmouth and has always lived locally, but has also worked in Hampshire and Surrey throughout her career. She has worked in domiciliary care for over 15 years, and the fact that this type of service allows people to stay in their own homes for as long as possible is something that really resonates with Jenna.
