Introducing Support at Home

Published on 05 April 2024 09:59 AM

Age UK Lancashire are excited to introduce ‘Support at Home’.

Support at Home will be the new name for the current Home Help service, Why? This is a celebration of the service’s evolvement over recent years, beyond just providing household chores. Rebranding as Support at Home acknowledges our commitment to the person’s wellbeing and meeting their individual needs for a wide range of support.  

Over the years, our service has become a beacon of support for many across Lancashire including Deryl, 88, who exemplifies the impact of our service. Since the passing of his wife and his diagnosis of dementia, Deryl has found comfort in the companionship and assistance provided by Kath, our dedicated Support at Home worker. Kath has been supporting Deryl not only with household chores but also with companionship, emotional support with outings, chats and the occasional game of dominoes.

Deryl said:

“Kath really brightens up my week! She takes me to buy flowers, then takes me to the cemetery to visit my wife. She sometimes takes me to the barbers too. She is marvellous and a whizz when cleaning and taking care of my home, but always makes time for a cup of tea and a good old chat with me, sometimes even a game of dominoes.”


Donna Studholme, Director of Operations at Age UK Lancashire, said:

“We’re proud that our Support at Home can offer so much more than your traditional cleaning service and our new name better reflects Age UK Lancashire, its values, and what this service provides to people across Lancashire.

The service has been supporting older people for over 15 years allowing them to stay independent as well as providing respite for family and friends and we want to continue this for many years to come.”

Support at Home offers flexibility and choice to suit the needs of each client. It’s available to people aged 50+ or living with a disability, who live in Lancashire.
