Our Help at Home service closed on Friday 18th October 2019
The charity has been running Help at Home for many years and throughout that time has had to subsidise this valuable Service.
Despite the best efforts and commitment of the Home Support Manager and Home Assistant team, it has become increasingly difficult to operate the Service and ensure that all clients’ needs are met. Added to this, the cost of recruitment of new staff, their induction and training, together with the rural area in which we operate, have all had a significant financial cost, so much so that the Trustees have determined that the Charity can no longer continue to support the Service.
Age UK East Grinstead & District will continue to support and provide services for older people within East Grinstead and the surrounding areas through the activities and signposting service here at Glen Vue, as well as with our trips, holidays and outings, and our Respite for Carers Service.
