Helping older people access practical help in their own homes.
Help at Home is a well-respected and valuable competitive domestic service that has been established in Brighton for 20 years.
We have now expanded and cover from Saltdean through to Southwick, reaching out to almost all areas in and around the city of Brighton & Hove.
The Help at Home service is key in providing continual support and peace of mind for extended family living miles away and is a link to the outside world.
We aim to provide a safe and personalised service to clients aged 65+, offering practical support with daily household tasks and garden maintenance.
Our home helps are self-employed local people who have been vetted and hold a Disclosure Barring Service certificate (police check).
