Way Ahead Care Virtual Dementia Tour Way Ahead Care provide care and support to adults of all ages and disabilities, to ensure continued wellbeing and independence. We strive to provide quality and flexible care and support services within the comfort of the individual’s own home. This can be delivered through either private bespoke services purchased directly or using Direct Payments or an Individual/Personal Budget through an agreement with the Local Authority.

We are able to offer a wide range of care and support services designed to meet the individual’s needs. This can either be a short term arrangement for a specific need, longer term support to meet ongoing requirements or more specialised 24hr care.

Way Ahead Care was started in 1994 by Pamela Smith who supported a client of a residential home who wished to return home. As the service expanded the owner of the residential home decided to retire and the new owner had no interest in domiciliary care so Pamela took over the service on a permanent basis. Throughout Way Ahead Care’s progression the company has expanded to deliver over 6000hrs of care a week at its peak and employed over 300 members of staff. Way Ahead Care holds ongoing contracts with Somerset and Bath Local Authorities and has provided numerous pilots and specialist schemes on behalf of Local Authorities to meet specific needs.

Way Ahead Care was started by Pam Smith in 1994. At the time, Pam was working within a care home called Wey House and a male resident wanted to return to his home and receive his care there instead.

Pam facilitated this move and from this started providing further home care services to one or two other individuals.

Further to this the owner of the Care Home wished to sell the home but thought that the care services Pam was delivering in the community would not be appealing to a perspective buyer. As a result the owner transferred this small service to Pam to run as a separate business – and Way Ahead Care was created.

Over the years Way Ahead Care has grown. It first became a Strategic Partner for Somerset County Council in 1999 and then again in 2004. Way Ahead Care has branched out into other services including Support services for Learning Disabilities, Mental Health as well as providing care and support services in a number of Extra Care Housing Schemes throughout Taunton Deane, Wellington and Sedgemoor.

In 2008 Way Ahead Care became a Strategic Partner for Bath & North East Somerset Council. Similar to 1994, an office was opened on the outskirts of Bath and we started looking after 1 individual and slowly built the service up to what it is today. In 2016 we started delivering Live-in Care throughout the South West. At its peak Way Ahead Care was employing over 300 people and caring for circa 650 individuals.

Pam retired in 2008, Way Ahead Care are still an independent company operating under the Somerset Care Group.
