Geographically, Devon is the fourth largest county in England, covering 2,590 square miles, with a population of approximately 1.1 million spread across 2 major cities, large conurbations, rugged coastline, and beautiful moors.
With approximately 25% of the population aged 65 or over, compared to a 17% average for the whole UK, and the population is expected to increase by 10% over the next 25 years.
This makes delivering care in the home a logistical challenge and means that our team of 15 have travelled 59,846 miles since the beginning of the year, helping our people stay safe, healthy and happy at home.
