‘Time to talk’ rather than ‘time and task’ – pioneering a new approach to later life in our local area


No Place Like Home is a highly personalised, private companionship and care service for senior residents living in Canterbury, Herne Bay, Whitstable, Faversham, Sittingbourne and all the surrounding rural areas. It was established by local Kent resident, Alison Carter, in response to challenges experienced by her mother, Leslie, in sourcing high quality, tailored support and care at home for husband, John.


Our passion is to help our clients be prepared for and to make the most of later life, focusing on quality experience and enjoyment. We pride ourselves in carefully crafting our support around each individual’s wishes – this might include escorted trips out as well as help in the home or, if needed, personal care. We are also able to provide respite care at home or recuperative support following a spell in hospital.


We are always delighted to receive visits from prospective clients, friends and family to explore how we might be able to help. Of course, we can also come out to visit prospective clients in their own homes if they are unable to come to us. We especially welcome those living with dementia.
