Debbie Vivian – Owner

Peninsula Home Support is a small, family run, local business founded in 2017 by Debbie Vivian. We pride ourselves on offering holistic, person-centred support to older people in South West Cornwall. We offer high quality companionship, home support and mobile hairdressing services and currently cover Falmouth, Penryn and surrounding villages.

Debbie has lived in Falmouth and Penryn all her life. She originally trained and worked as a hairdresser for over twenty years, initially working in a local Falmouth salon and then, after her children were born, as a mobile stylist covering Falmouth, Penryn and Truro.

Debbie worked as mobile hairdresser for over ten years, visiting people in their own homes and in care homes. Often, when listening to her clients stories, Debbie felt powerless to help and it was this that inspired her to retrain and qualify as an older people’s Social Worker.

Debbie has worked as a Social Worker with Cornwall Council’s Older People/Physical Disability team, as a Care Co-ordinator with a local home care company and latterly as a Community Officer for a local charity, supporting people with visual impairment in their own homes and at the Falmouth & Truro eye clinic, hospital desks.

At weekends, Debbie enjoys knitting, spending time with her grandchildren and going on long coastal walks with her fiancé and their two dogs.
