About Home Care & Live-in Care in Dorset

Our Home Care & Live-in Care services provide quality support from our trained carers in the comfort and security of your own home.

If you choose visiting Home Care, we’ll visit as much or as little as you need, when you need it. If you choose Live-in Care, your carer will move in with you or your loved one and be there to help when you need them.

Our Teams are dedicated to delivering high quality Home Care & Live-in Care services throughout Dorset.

Stay independent at home for as long as possible. Simply get in touch today to get started.

“Alina Homecare Poole has been absolutely outstanding in the care of my Mother-in-Law. From first contact, they have been super professional and caring. My Mother-in-Law has been in hospital a number of times and they have helped me coordinate her care and rehabilitation when returning home.”

Corinne M, Relative

“Excellent service from first contact with the office by phone, caring staff visiting my 91-year-old Uncle every morning. He looks forward to their visits, they are extremely professional, and friendly with compassion and respect. I would definitely recommend Alina Homecare.”

Home Care Benefits

Stay local

Local events. Familiar faces. Community is important. With Home Care & Live-in Care, you or your loved one can stay in the Dorset area.


You’ll stay in control of your own routine and make the big and small decisions about everyday life. Family and friends can also visit whenever you choose.

Enjoy company

Living alone can be hard but moving to a care home can be overwhelming. A regular Care Worker or Live-in Carer provides company and privacy.

Peace of mind

Live-in Care & Home Care provides peace of mind and reassurance. Our care monitoring app even lets loved ones track care in real time.

Live with a spouse

Staying together is important for many couples in later life. Avoid the separation of residential care and save money by having a Live-in Carer move in.


People receiving Live-in Care have half as many hip fractures as those who are living in a care home.1

Keep pets

You don’t have to say goodbye to your pet. Whether you’re a dog or cat person, our Live-in Carers can even help with feeds, walks and visiting the vet.

1:1 support

Unlike most other care, Live-in Care is dedicated to one client or a couple. That means round-the-clock undivided support.

Less disruption

Moving to a care home can be disruptive. Stay in the comfort of your own home and avoid stress from selling your family home.


Live-in Care in Dorset can be cost-effective, especially for couples compared against care home fees for two people.

About Alina Homecare Dorset

How are your Teams checked?

All our services are regulated and monitored by the Care Quality Commission (CQC), who conduct in-depth assessments. Their reports and ratings of all inspected services are available online. In addition to this, all our Teams are enhanced DBS checked. We also provide exclusive training to ensure the Home Care and Live-in Care we deliver in Dorset is excellent.

How is care monitored?

We are fully regulated by the Care Quality Commission to ensure we provide quality care. In addition, we’re proud to have partnered with Birdie Care, an innovative care technology that enables us to digitally log, track and monitor the support we provide.

Our carers are guided by the Birdie App to instantly make notes, record medications and flag concerns during visits so nothing is overlooked. The Birdie Family App enables your family members to have full visibility at any time about how your care is being delivered, with the client’s consent.

How do you match Live-in Carers in Dorset?

When you choose Alina Homecare, we start looking for a Live-in Carer who will best meet your needs and that you’ll really enjoy having around. That means we even try to match your personalities, hobbies and interests. We’ll meet you initially to learn more about you or your loved one and we’ll keep your preferences in mind, such as whether you want a male or female live-in carer.

When do Live-in Carers take time off?

Our Live-in Carers have different working patterns; some work two weeks and then have two weeks off. Others work 4-6 weeks and then take 2-4 weeks off. When you enquire about Live-in Care with us, we will discuss the options available to you and create a care plan that suits your lifestyle.
