Coronavirus (Covid-19) Update:

Throughout the pandemic our amazing staff continued to provide essential care services to older people and others in need. Although restrictions have now eased, our staff continue to use appropriate Personal Protective Equipment when with clients, and we continue to follow the latest guidance to keep everyone as safe as possible.


Our Home Help service supports older people and carers who need assistance with routine household tasks, shopping, and dealing with paperwork. Our Home Help Co-ordinator is Emma Houghton; call her on 01626 889288 for more information about our services. The office is manned Monday to Friday, 9am to 5pm, except when we are out on visits. Please leave your name and number on our answerphone and we will get back to you as soon as we can.

If limited mobility or ill-health mean that you can no longer keep your home as you would like, or you find you struggle to cope with tasks like changing your bedding or cleaning your bath, we can help.

Our service is flexible and available weekly, fortnightly, or as agreed.
Minimum 1 hour.

Our Statement of Purpose, which gives full details of our service and information for clients, can be accessed here. It will open in a new window.

With effect from 15th April 2024, the cost is £21 per hour, for a dedicated member of staff to help with:

  • vacuuming, dusting, mopping, general cleaning
  • changing bedding
  • help with laundry
  • ironing
  • shopping
  • food preparation & washing up
  • small sewing tasks like buttons, simple mending
  • help with paperwork, reading and writing letters

Shifts required on Bank Holidays will be charged at £34.50 per hour.

Please note that the service will not provide DIY, outdoor window cleaning, or any tasks involving ladders.

Please telephone Emma for more information and to discuss your needs. She will arrange a home visit to confirm your requirements and agree the service.
The office is manned Monday - Friday 9am-5pm, except when staff are out on visits. Please leave your name and number on our answerphone and we will get back to you as soon as we can.

My home looks and feels so nice when the home help has been, smells nice too!
