SOS HOME SERVICES
Providing East Sussex with professional care and support
SOS Home Services is a partnership formed by three local women in 1987 who felt there was a specific market for care amongst the elderly in and around Bexhill.
In the early days it was purely domestic work that was undertaken but it soon became very obvious to all involved that there was a very great demand and the business grew rapidly. In 1996 the business moved premises.
The move proved to be a real turning point and we set up a hot meal service providing home cooked food from their own premises, delivered daily. At this time we were employing over 100 care staff all of whom were working with clients in their own homes. As time progressed and the need for homecare became more obvious they became involved with the local County Council providing quality care in the community. This was a very large step to take as we then became registered as a domiciliary care agency and started to provide personal care tasks as well as domestic, shopping calls and a sitting service to give respite to full time carers. Like all changes this involved a lot of new challenges as the staff now needed more in depth training.
