Extra Help for Older Persons in South Devon

Springtime may be a good time to look at the extra help that you need with jobs around the home. Friends Helping at Home offers a range of support that enables people to remain living in the comfort of their own home.

Let us Help You

We can help with everything that you need to remain living in the comfort of your own home, from: providing occasional hours each week for tasks such as cleaning, gardening, general tidying and routine household maintenance, to personal care, whether a daily visit of live in-care.

Karen Breyley, Torbay Branch Manager says, “quite often at this time of year new customers come to us for extra help, sometimes, the occasional hour with help with cutting the grass, or help around the home, or help may be needed to find the right care upon returning from hospital or with respite. We are able to adapt and help as customers’ requirements change overtime, in particular, following illness or a hospital visit”.

Trusted, Safe, Friendly Service

A local branch director provides a single, friendly point of contact to discuss your requirements. Having understood what help that you need at home, we will introduce you to carers and support workers for you to meet.

All of our carers and support workers are fully insured, trained and vetted. Everyone is police checked with an up-to-date DBS and we take up references. Most of those we introduce are already tried and tested and in great demand! Our customers book those whom they know and like.

Always Your Choice

All of our customers meet prospective carers and helpers at a no obligation, free introductory meeting with the Branch Manager who accompanies them. When you are happy with the “Friends” that we’ve introduced you are able to book them

Saving You Money

We keep our costs and overheads low so that our charges are highly competitive. We believe that you do get what you pay for, however, our system and way of working enables care professionals and support workers to earn a decent income, so we’re fussy about those who register with us.

We can also help with form filling and help you obtain the funding that you may be entitled to, for example, help completed the “attendance allowance” paperwork.
