Practical home help

Practical home help

Our practical home help service assists those who need help with day to day house work, meals, or getting out and about

We offer practical home help for the elderly, those with disabilities, with mental illness, and anyone who struggles to get practical tasks done in the household. Housework may become more difficult to do, or take much longer.

We support by assisting, or doing practical tasks which may include:

  • Vacuuming the home or cleaning floors
  • Tidying and dusting
  • General cleaning or one off cleaning tasks
  • Preparing and cooking meals
  • Doing the washing up
  • Going to the shops with you, or for you
  • Support with managing household bills
  • Assistance with managing medicines
  • Pet care like feeding, walking the dog, or cleaning pet homes and toilets

Many people combine some practical home help with some personal home care as often, it is both that are needed.

Getting out and about

We also help with arranging and planning a trip out, visits to friends and family, and support with social activities like attending a local coffee morning, social clubs, bingo, or the cinema. Our support is provided in the way that suits you, with personal care planning, ensuring that we respect people's personal preferences, lifestyle and care choices.

If you or a loved one has an event to attend such as a wedding or a funeral and will need assistance throughout the day, we can help.

We understand that often, it is not just help at home that is needed but also friendship and companionship.
