We'll help you stay independent

We enable older people to live independently in their own home

Please be assured that we are continuing to take sensible measures and doing all we can to keep our clients safe.  We welcome new clients and are working to provide the service throughout the county.

We are endeavouring to carry out assessments for new clients as soon as possible.

Please do not hesitate to get in touch if you have any queries. 

What does the service offer?

Our friendly, reliable Domestic Care Workers are DBS (Disclosure and Barring Service) checked and have provided references, which we have checked.  We can help with domestic duties in your home, such as:

  • cleaning kitchens, bathrooms and toilets                         
  • internal cleaning of windows
  • small amounts of washing and ironing
  • light shopping at local shops
  • changing beds
  • vacuuming and dusting

Who is it for?

People aged 55 or over living in Northamptonshire.

Our Domestic Care Workers are a familiar visitor who can be trusted to have the welfare of their clients at heart.  Keeping a home tidy, for example, can help deter doorstep crime.

How much does it cost?

  • We charge £17.50 per hour.  This is paid by monthly invoice in arrears.
  • The minimum service we can arrange is one hour per fortnight.
  • Most clients prefer a weekly visit.  Please ring us to discuss your requirements.

How do I access the service?

Contact us on 01604 611200

All clients will be visited by a member of staff from one of our community based teams to assess their needs and find out what support they would like.  We will organise payment arrangements with you and set up a regular visit by one of our Domestic Care Workers.

Once a Domestic Care Worker has been arranged for a client we regret we are not able to provide cover if they are absent due to sickness or holiday, but will do our best to help.
