A reliable trustworthy and friendly service that can help you or your loved ones to live independently at home.

About this service

When some of the usual chores and everyday tasks start to become more difficult, we could all do with a little help. Our Home Support service allows you or your loved ones to remain independent at home by providing practical help with a range of tasks.

What does the service offer?

  • General cleaning such as vacuuming carpets, dusting, cleaning bathrooms and kitchens and changing bedding
  • Cleaning cupboards and interior windows
  • Companionship – if you would like someone to accompany you to appointments or just sit with you and enjoy a chat over a cup of tea
  • Shopping
  • Snack preparation
  • Collecting prescriptions
  • Laundry and ironing
  • Dog walking

We do not deliver any personal care such as helping to get dressed, going to the toilet or assisting with medication.
