Helping Hand

Home help in Coventry

What does it do?

When some of the usual chores and everyday tasks start to become more difficult to carry out, we could all do with a little bit of help.

Our specially selected, caring and friendly home assistants can work with you so that you can continue to live your life the way you want.

Our home assistants can help with tasks including:

  • general cleaning, such as vacuuming carpets, dusting, cleaning the bathroom and kitchen, and changing bedding
  • helping you to get out and about, either on public transport or in the home assistant’s car
  • accompanying you to wherever you want to go, such as the post office, shops, GP surgery, hospital, garden centre cemetery or to see friends and relatives
  • laundry and ironing, including helping you to wash your clothes in the washing machine or hand-wash small items
  • shopping for you or with you
  • light gardening, such as mowing the lawn or weeding
  • reading and writing letters
  • paying bills
  • walking your dog
  • collecting your pension
  • reading a book or newspaper to you
  • enjoying a cup of tea and a chat with you, and maybe a game of cards
  • your NEW gardening service

In a recent survey, nearly all of our service users stated that they felt the service had improved their quality of life a great deal.
