This service is open to older or disabled people throughout Calderdale and Kirklees. Our excellent team of Home Helpers can do your cleaning and help with other household tasks or even do your shopping for you.
They provide a friendly face weekly or fortnightly, helping you to remain independent in your own home.
For pricing and to book your home helper, call our Halifax office 01422 252 040.
Meet Elsie Gill
Elsie is in her 90's and lives by herself in Dalton in Huddersfield. She has arthritis and relies on her walker to get about, even in the house. She is still lively and loves to chat so being stuck in the house drives her mad sometimes, though she does have family nearby and lovely neighbours.
Donna goes by once a week and takes care of the cleaning and any other household chores that need doing.
Elsie looks forward to Donna's visits. You can tell they get on well and have a laugh together by the banter flying between them. Donna not only helps out with the cleaning, she breaks up Elsie's day and brings a little warmth and companionship too.
Elsie has had a fascinating life, starting work in the Mills at 15, shipping off to be a Land Girl during the war and singing at the City Varieties in Leeds. Click here to read Elsie's story.
