  • a Monday to Friday service
  • a range of activities based on your interests
  • occasional trips out

What are host carers homes like?

All host carers homes are assessed for their suitability and safety by Age UK Torbay. All have a downstairs lavatory and most have some form of level access. Homes are covered by the Age UK Torbay Public Liability Insurance policy.
