The Help in the Home domestic cleaning service is now able to offer a Companionship and Carers Break Service. We understand that your needs will differ to someone else's depending on your circumstances and that reliability and a caring attitude are vital. 

We can:

  • Provide company and give carers time to themselves
  • Chat, share interests and hobbies
  • Play board games, complete crosswords, jigsaw puzzles etc
  • Escort locally to shops, cafes, garden centres, parks, go for walks (subject to client mobility)

Our Home Helpers are carefully chosen, they are:

  • Interviewed and checked through three refernces and the Disclosure and Barring Service
  • Reliable, trustworthy and have an understanding of the particular issues around getting older
  • Trained in Health and Safety, Boundaries Safeguadring, Food Hygiene, First Aid and Dementia Awareness

How it works and what to do next:

The companionship visit costs £20 per hour, and we ask for a minimum visit of 1.5 hours either weekly or 2 hours fortnightly. Payment is monthly in arrears by direct debit

Visits will be subject to availability of Home Helpers in your area and will not include any personal care. If this sounds right for you, please call us to arrage for a Pre-Service Assessment visit which costs £30 (non-refundable)
