Our Personal Assistant Service has been introduced following a significant level of interest from service users, who have asked us if we could help them to find a way of finding support in the home with their social care needs, enabling them to live their day to day life as normal as possible and take part in everyday activities.
The duties of our Personal Assistants include:
Befriending: Spending time talking, playing games, helping with a hobby or using a computer.
Sitting service: To give the carer a break or to escort the individual to a medical appointment.
Social outings: Help with shopping, a visit to a garden centre or another place of interest.
Domestic choices: Light housework including vacuuming, dusting,
changing the bed, cleaning bathroom and kitchen or making a light meal.
The service depends on what the user needs and can change over time. We can discuss needs during an initial assessment.
There is a charge of £15.00 per hour for this service. Please call Alison Wright on 01263 733385 if you would like to know more.
