Complete Home Help was founded by former care worker Janine Adams, from Oxford Street, Barrow, around a year ago.

The business had been operating out of Ms Adams’ living room, but after a year of improving the quality of life for residents with lunches, trips out and home visits, it has moved into new premises in Rawlinson Street. The opening was attended by Barrow mayor Wendy Maddox.

Ms Adams said: “It’s absolutely lovely to know the business is growing and it is working. It’s definitely a needed service.”

Christine Brown, whose mother Lucy used the service before her death earlier this year, said: “They really understand dementia, and the help they provide benefits the family as well. When my mother was dying in hospital, the staff came and sat with me. They go the extra mile.”
