A care provider unlike any other

Home From Home Care is entirely owned by Paul, Ann and Hugo de Savary who were inspired to create a care environment which would help adults with learning disabilities, autism and complex physical and mental health to live their lives to the fullest.

Motivated by their search for a care home for Laura, their daughter (Hugo’s sister), Paul, Ann and Hugo created Home From Home Care to be a care provider unlike any other.

Inspired by Laura

Forty four years ago, opening specialist residential care homes didn’t figure in our lives.


Then, when Laura was six months old, we were told: ‘Your daughter is mentally handicapped, she might live, or might not – we don’t really know and, by the way, good luck’.


Over the years, fighting to get the best for Laura has given us an insight into the world of care.


She is the inspiration for Home From Home Care, which we created with her brother Hugo.


Laura is testament to how anyone can positively affect the lives of others.
