Do you need support at home?

Community Warden Services:

Do you live in the areas of Ely, Girton, Histon & Impington, Littleport, Linton, Ramsey, Swavesey, Waterbeach, Teversham or Shudy Camps (known as "Small Villages" and includes the surrounding villages of: Castle Camps, West Wratting, Balsham, West Wickham, Horseheath, Weston Colvil)?

We have a team of wardens in these areas helping people in later life to live in their own homes with support. Each warden will phone or make a personal visit to the client:

  • to help with shopping
  • collect prescriptions
  • make phone calls on their behalf
  • help complete forms
  • liaise with other services when needed
  • arrange for a doctor or nurse to visit

We offer a two week free trial for anybody thinking of joining the service, which may be on a short or long term basis. After this we will make a small weekly charge.

Community Support at Home Service:

If you live in Peterborough we have Community Support workers who can provide you with daily contact, giving you peace of mind and support for independant living, this can be ongoing or short term support depending on your needs.

The new Community Support at Home service is open to people aged 60 and over living in the Peterborough area. This service is free of charge.

For more information please call our helpline 0300 666 9860 between 9am-3pm Monday to Friday, calls made outside these hours will be transferred to our Age UK National Helpline.
