Providing care at home

Age UK Northamptonshire provides care to people in the last weeks of their life, which enables them to remain at home with their loved ones.

This service is currently only available by referral from your GP or hospital staff.  Please contact us on the details below to find out how we can help.

A team of 30+ carers provides a 24-hour-service to people at home.

  • For people who are deemed to be in the last eight weeks of life and have chosen to be cared for at home
  • Fully funded by the NHS so there is no cost to the patient or their family
  • At any given time we care for around 12 people across the county with varying levels of need.  One person might be visited by a carer once day, another might need up to four visits a day by two carers and have overnight support. 
  • We respond to changing needs and do our utmost to ensure the patient and their family receive the support they need.

Our Extra Help Team strives to achieve high standards in all it does.  Please use the link below to read the Annual Quality Account provided to Nene Commissioning Group and Corby Clinical Commissioning Group.
