Help at Home

We support older people over the age of 50 to stay in their own home and maintain their independence for as long as possible.

We provide regular, reliable, friendly support, usually organised between us, the client and their family or carer. Our team do the jobs that have become a little too much for an older person to manage on their own. Typically these will be keeping the home clean and tidy, changing the beds, loading the washing machine or hoovering. Sometimes it is managing shopping as carrying heavy bags has become difficult.

Our assistants typically build up a relationship with their clients, who appreciate the consistency of seeing the same friendly face each visit.

"The assistants that come to see me are excellent, I'm so happy with them. My house looks so well cared for now and I love the meals they help me prepare. Life saver!"

We employ more than 50 Help at Home Assistants who visit their clients on a regular basis and help with:

Companionship
Keeping a client company so their partner or carer can take some time for themselves
General housework
Gardening and outdoor jobs
Cleaning
Sorting and tidying
Laundry and ironing
Changing the bed linen
Shopping (either for you or together with you)
Taking clients to appointments or out for trips and social activities
Preparing lunch and snacks.

We can’t provide personal care (such as help with dressing, feeding, medication, washing and toileting).

How we get started

If this is the kind of help you, a relative, or friend is looking for, please get in touch so that we can arrange a home assessment visit. This will be an opportunity for one of our team leaders to discuss our services in more detail, to find out exactly what kind of help is needed and to plan an appropriate schedule of visits.

Our team leaders will then find a suitable, local Help at Home Assistant who will provide your regular support.

Our Assistants have enhanced DBS checks and undergo relevant training. They are friendly and professional.

Our service is very flexible and we’re happy to amend the frequency or length of visits to suit your changing needs.
