Would you benefit from a break or some time to yourself? The Time for You service is designed to give the carer a worry-free break while providing companionship and care for their loved one at home.
What does 'Time for You' offer?
Age UK Exeter, in partnership with Devon Carers, is delivering a small service in Exeter called Time for You.
If you are a carer of an older person yourself and worry about leaving them when you go out, or know of someone in this situation, then this service could offer you some support.
Carers could use the time to go shopping, attend appointments, have coffee with friends or simply enjoy some ‘me’ time.
Age UK Exeter have recruited highly competent local volunteers who provide good company and practical support, so that it’s a positive experience for both the carer and their loved one.
Please note- we are unable to provide personal care.
The service could be a regular, weekly arrangement of between 1 to 3 hours a week, or ad hoc visits.
The service can either be provided by Age UK Exeter at £5 an hour or may be free following an assessment by Devon Carers.
Any carers interested in finding out more about what the service can offer can phone our Time for You coordinator, Jessica Cohen, on 01392 455611 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
