Reliable help and support in the home offering assistance via practical, emotional and social support
Age UK Sutton offers the Helping Hands service to help people stay happy, healthy and independent both inside and outside their home
As people live longer and want to remain independent at home, reliable, caring services are required to help with all those daily tasks which become a little more difficult.
We have a bank of reliable, compassionate and well-vetted Helping Hands personal assistants who can visit you weekly or fortnightly.
We can help with:
- General domestic cleaning
- Changing bed linen
- Sorting through cupboards
- Preparation of meals
- Prescription collection
- Company on walks and outings
- One-off spring cleans
- Help with packing when moving house
- Paying bills
- 12 week short term assistance whilst convalescing
How the service works
Our coordinator will visit you at home to complete a holistic assessment and discuss your needs, hours, cost and any other requirements.
If you would like to take up the service, we will then match you to one of our Helping Hands. We take into consideration personality and requirements when making a match, as having a good rapport with your Helping Hand is important to us.
Crucially, all our Helping Hands are thoroughly referenced, interviewed personally and are police vetted by undergoing a DBS (Disclosure and Barring Service) check.
The service costs between £9 and £11 per hour.
