Help at home
Those daily chores like the washing up and laundry. Mopping the floors and vacuuming. Changing the sheets and making beds. Light gardening and tidying up the section.
From help preparing meals to support with eating. Planning the menu or trips to the supermarket.
Listening and chatting. A game of cards, a cup of tea. A walk in the park, a trip to the shops.
Making sure help is always at hand. Support with the daily tasks and overnight assistance.
Helping you get to the doctors, the supermarket – a day out. Your car or the helper’s, you decide.
Need help to stay active? Someone to join you on a walk or a swim at the pool. A visit to the gym or exercise at home.
Assisting you with the day-to-day errands. From picking up your prescriptions to help with the shopping.
