About help in the home

Are you an older person living in Buckinghamshire? Do you struggle to keep your home as spick and span as you'd like? Perhaps you need an Age UK Buckinghamshire home helper?

Our home helpers can assist with general cleaning, vacuuming, laundry, shopping and prescription collections. You choose which tasks your home helper carries out for you each week, supporting you to remain in control of keeping your home the way you like it to be.

How does it work?

Your home helper can visit each week, or at other intervals, for as long as you'd like, to help with your household tasks. You pay an hourly rate, plus a one off pre-service visit and registration fee. The home helper uses your cleaning products and equipment.

Who will my home helper be?

We have a robust selection process to ensure we have the best people for the job. All our home helpers are checked through references and the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS).

Where is the service available?

This service is available throughout Buckinghamshire.

Some restrictions

Unfortunately, we cannot remove any rubbish from the home or take away unwanted items to charity shops or to the dump, as we do not have a licence. However, we can move small items into a spare room or a garage so that they are out of the way.
