Visits & Shopping

Help is available if you, or an elderly person you know, has difficulty getting out and about, due to illness or mobility problems.

It may be help with shopping, or just popping in for a cup of tea and a chat on a regular basis if you are feeling lonely.
We have a member of staff who will visit you at home to discuss any problems you might have and assist you in accessing the services that you require.

There is no charge for the visiting and assessment service. There would be a small charge to cover fuel costs for any shopping trips.


Bereavement

Our Bereavement Cafe is open on the second Thursday of every month between 11.00am and 12.00noon. It is held at the Banstead Day Centre and offers a chance to meet with others who understand the experience of loss.
The cafe is a space to talk about the pain of bereavement, and to find mutual support and encouragement when you need it most.
Our cafe is run in conjunction with Princess Alice Hospice and the Epsom Deanery. To arrange a place at the cafe please contact our office.
