Our family,
caring for yours

At Eaton Homecare our story revolves around our family, caring for families just like yours, for over five decades. Support and caring for elderly people is in our DNA, and helping you is at the very core of what we do. Based in the university city of Cambridge, our family has two generations of experience in the home care sector.

We listen to you, and
you always come first

It’s not about what you or your loved one can’t do. Instead we focus on the positives of what you can do and, from that, create a support plan that helps you achieve your everyday goals, no matter how small or large they may be.
