At Age UK Lambeth we understand the challenges faced as we get older. We are here to help. MyHOME service provides practical help to enable people to feel comfortable, safe and secure at home for a competitive price.
We also provide a short term respite/ sitting service for carers. We offer the carer quality time outside of their caring role to have space for themselves with peace of mind. MyHOME from Age UK Lambeth is a flexible and trusted service which can provide as much or as little help as needed. Our home helpers are fully trained, supervised and police (DBS) checked.
As well as the practical help and support received, we can connect people to other services provided by Age UK Lambeth including:
• Face to face and telephone befriending
• Support for health conditions
• Social events around Lambeth with MYsocial.
• Handyperson service, to help with odd jobs around
We can arrange a free benefits check with Age UK Lambeth's Information & Advice service to make sure all eligible benefits are being claimed – if eligible for Attendance Allowance this could help with the cost of the myHOME service.

Most people with a life limiting illness want to stay living in their own homes and their community palliative care services are here to help you do that. Their staff work alongside GPs and district nurses offering symptom control advice and helping patients and families to adjust to their situation.
