Personalised support to help you stay independent in your own home. Help includes cleaning and housework, shopping (escorted and non-escorted), companionship, planning and preparation of light meals, support with attending appointments, organising household paperwork and regular respite for carers.

At Age UK Devon, we understand that as we get older some household tasks can be a challenge. Older people have told us that companionship, conversation and pursuing hobbies are important to their quality of life.

Our chargeable Enabling and Home Support Service aims to meet these needs to enable you to make the most of later life and stay independent in your own home. We will endeavour to match you to a Support Assistant who shares your interests or outlook, so that you find it easier to get along. Whenever possible, you will be visited by the same person, to build trust and provide reassurance.

Our regular weekly service includes:

- Cleaning and housework
- Shopping (escorted and non-escorted)
- Companionship
- Planning and preparation of light meals
- Support with attending appointments
- Organising household paperwork
- Regular respite for carers

This service currently operates within Teignbridge including Newton Abbot, East Devon, and parts of Mid Devon including Tiverton & Cullompton. Please be aware due to the popularity of our Enabling and Home Support Service some areas in which we operate do at times have waiting lists and we recommend contacting us to find out our current availability.

If you, or someone you know, would benefit from our service, contact us to discuss your needs. New clients will be visited for an initial assessment, during which a personalised support plan will be developed with you. If your situation changes, we can adjust your plan accordingly. We aim to be as flexible as possible.

- Our staff are carefully selected, undergo a DBS check and a range of training including dementia awareness training.
- We are covered by comprehensive liability insurance.
- Our service operates between 9 am - 4 pm, Mondays to Fridays.
