Outreach - Care & Companionship for your loved one

Outreach provides one to one support from registered care workers. We can spend time with your loved one at your home or we can go out and about, leaving you to relax in the knowledge that they are in safe hands.

Our care workers can help your loved one with any care and support needs including eating a meal, using the toilet, having a bath or shower and taking prescription medications.

Help at Home - support with practical tasks at home & shopping

Our Help at Home service can provide relief to carers by assisting with all sorts of practical domestic tasks including cleaning, laundry, changing bedding, shopping and running errands.

Getting help with practical tasks can give you respite, the chance to spend more quality time with your loved one and the time to focus on the other responsibilities of your caring role.

Meals on Wheels - Hot meal delivery

Meals on Wheels can give carers time off from planning and preparing meals by delivering freshly cooked two course hot meals direct to the door.

If you live with the person you care for and are both over 50 you can both receive a meal.

Day clubs - A day out for your loved one & respite for you

Our day clubs help your loved one to get out and about, keep active and stay connected and give you the chance to get some respite from your caring role knowing that they are being well looked after.
