about us

living independently at home

health & social care

Home & Company is owned and managed by Julie Gibson and Loretta Harrison.

We have worked together for the past twenty years. We previously owned and ran a national organisation which promoted best practice across health and social care through training, events and publications. We also have experience of working in the NHS and voluntary sector.

In 2012 we both experienced the social care system for ourselves, finding help for members of our own family. It left us feeling that there could be more choice. We wanted a different sort of service, and so Home & Company was born. We wanted something that was very personal, where clients were carefully matched with their helper and could build a relationship with that person. We wanted to find helpers that had a bit of life experience, could cook good food (a topic close to our hearts!), had great communication skills, could drive, and could support people in a more holistic way to help them get the best out of their lives.

We also thought more broadly about what would help people who want to stay living independently at home, and so in addition to our home help team we work with a fantastic group of specialists to provide building & decorating, gardening, home security, window cleaning, foot care, hair & beauty and more.

Over the past seven years we’ve been on a journey with more than 200 clients and as their needs have changed we’ve been able to help them with their next steps.

We have had fantastic feedback from clients, families and their representatives and it’s made us feel so pleased to have embarked on Home & Company.

"I have used Home and Company in professional capacity for a number of my vulnerable clients. I have also used the company for family members. This is because I have always been delighted with the service that Home & Company provides. Julie and Loretta are wonderful and efficient and their staff have always been excellent with our clients. I have always been impressed with everyone's no-nonsense approach, empathy, trustworthiness and kindness. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Home and Company to anyone needing support, as they get older."  R Bates, Hove

“A year on from my Aunt setting out on her journey to move from her own home to a care home she has reached a good place. What a good find. And in very large part this is down to Home & Company and their team. I really cannot thank you enough” A W, Edinburgh

"When my 94 year old father was discharged from hospital after a bit of a heart scare he needed more on hand support than we could give remotely. Home and Company proved to be just the job and Dad now has a new trusted friend to help with his weekly shop and to take him to the odd appointment for eye tests and the like. Their list of services gives us the flexibility we need in supporting Dad . It enables him to continue enjoying his independent lifestyle and us the peace of mind that he has options should his needs become greater. It is wonderful service that caters for our needs in supporting Dad."  R Martin, Bristol

"Home & Company are incredibly efficient - and so helpful and friendly too. Living some distance from my elderly mother I don't know how I would have managed without them over the past year. I have used many of their different services and people. I have always been extremely pleased. In addition to fulfilling everyday requirements such as companionship, shopping, cleaning, home maintenance, they also did an excellent job of catering for a Big Birthday party."  B Lindsay, London

"Home and Company have been absolutely brilliant. I've used their services for several of my clients and I've seen such a huge improvement in their quality of life. I don't know how they do it but they have a real knack for finding really great people whose knowledge and personalities just fit with the people they are working with. They give a huge amount of thought to what would work for each individual and their commitment and quality is second to none. Highly recommended."  RS, Hove
