All our enablers are paid members of staff. They are mature, local people who are dependable, caring and sensitive to their clients' needs. There are however some things that enablers cannot do:

  • They cannot help with personal care
  • They cannot perform medical tasks
  • They cannot take over the running of a client's home

Age Positive: rather than talk about ‘the elderly’, ‘pensioners’ or ‘OAPs’, which can be excluding or have negative connotations, we use the term ‘older people’. Age UK Exeter is committed to helping people love later life.
