This short video explains more about the Help at Home Service and the support it offers to enable older people to live independently.
Support at Home
Whether you need someone to do light housework, have a chat, go to the shops, run errands or tidy your garden, we are here to make life easier for you. Our friendly and reliable Home Helps and Gardeners will undertake a wide range of tasks to help improve your quality of life and keep you independent at home. "It is like having a friend come round to help, I am very glad I have a Home Help. I enjoy seeing her each week".
How does the service work?
You choose the support you need. Our local team will talk to you about your requirements and introduce you to a Home Help who has been interviewed and selected by us. We will be available to ensure you receive excellent service and answer any questions you may have. If required we will, wherever possible, arrange holiday and sickness cover to ensure you receive continuous support. All of our Home Helps are security checked to give you peace of mind.
Home helps are able to assist with the following:
- Light meal preparation
- And much more...
Other assistance may be possible as agreed between the client, Help at Home Co-ordinator and Home Help.
What is the cost?
We charge a modest monthly service fee to enable us to support you locally and our charitable work across the county. To make the service as affordable as possible, all our Home Helps and Gardeners are self-employed. That means you pay them directly for the number of hours they work.
We also provide:
Short term cover
If you have a planned visit to hospital, are recovering from illness, or just need our Help at Home service for a short period of time, we can supply a Home Help. Contact the relevant office, depending on where you live (see below), for more information and to discuss your requirements.
From planting and weeding to pruning and mowing the lawn, our reliable Gardeners will help you to enjoy and make the most of your garden.
