Independent Living Support

Domestic help service in Tunbridge Wells

What does it do?

The Independent Living Support Service is designed to help older people remain independent in their own homes by assisting with day-to-day living tasks.

Lady cleaningThese tasks might include

  • Domestic cleaning
  • Laundry, ironing and changing bedclothes
  • Shopping
  • Gardening and garden maintenance
  • Dealing with correspondence

We tailor the service to your preferences and needs, and will visit you first to discuss the requirements and agree with you the tasks you would like carried out. 

Our coordinator will then match you to a suitable support worker who will always carry identification, visit at pre-arranged times, and carry out the tasks we have agreed with you.

The temptation is often to enter into private arrangements with cleaners and gardeners, but sometimes this doesn't work out. It's unlikely you have the resources to thoroughly check someone's credentials and often you have to take the person at face value or rely on recommendations.

With the Independent Living Support service from Age UK Tunbridge Wells, this is a worry you needn't face. All our staff are carefully selected, screened and vetted. They are employed by us and, if you are unhappy with any aspect of the service you receive, you can call us directly and ask the service co-ordinator to deal with the issue.

We do not offer personal care services. However, if your needs are beyond what we can provide, we will be able to assist you in finding the right support through our information and advice service.
