Our Home Services provide help with everyday chores in your home helping you to stay independent.

Age UK Salford's Home Services provide you with a regular visit to help you with the domestic tasks that you may find challenging, or that you prefer to no longer do yourself.

We employ trained and experienced Home Service Assistants, all of whom are thoroughly vetted and police-checked, with current DBS checks. The same Home Service Assistant will come to you every time, so you will quickly become familiar with your dedicated member of staff.

You can tailor the service to suit your needs, from as little as one hour every fortnight, up to two hours or more each week. We will make every effort to schedule the service at a time most convenient to you.

Our general household cleaning service can include kitchen and bathroom cleaning, polishing, dusting, vacuuming, ironing, bed linen changes, mopping and internal window cleaning.

We also offer a shopping service if you are unable to shop for yourself and would like regular shopping done for you. Simply prepare a list of the items you want and provide our  Home Services Assistant with sufficient money to cover the cost of your purchases. Our Home Services Assistant will go to the shop/supermarket of your choice and bring back your shopping and any change. If you want, they can help you put your shopping away.

Who can use Home Services?

If you, or the person you are buying the service for is a Salford resident aged 55yrs or older, you can use our service.

How much does it cost?

Home Services cost £15.50 per hour (price correct as of 01 May 2018). You can purchase regular weekly or fortnightly visits from one hour per visit or more in 30minute increments.  If you are using the shopping service, you must also provide the money for the shopping you require before each shopping visit.

Payments can be made by cash or cheque, directly to the Home Service Assistant each time they visit you for a cleaning session or shopping trip. Alternatively you can pay by card over the phone by calling 0161 788 7300, or arrange for a monthly invoice to be sent to you/the person paying for the service.
