Coronavirus (Covid-19) Update:


Current guidelines include stopping non-essential contact with others and adopting social distancing. We are continuing to provide essential care services, prioritising those with the greatest need. An additional essential service now is to undertake food shopping for those who are struggling to access it online or by phone. We have some capacity through our Home Help service to support in this way, please contact us on the number below.



ASSIST HOME HELP SERVICE


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.

The cost is £16 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 £26 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!”

We need volunteers for community activities, and Trustees to help with the running of the organisation.

We make a charge for some of our services, but in keeping these as low as possible we do still rely on grant aid and donations from our supporters. Click here to find out how to make a donation or otherwise help us financially.
