Home Care Service

What does the Home Care service provide?

The Home Care service offers domestic and personal care such as:

  • Bathing, washing and dressing
  • Laundry and ironing
  • Shopping and collecting pensions
  • Preparing light snacks
  • Cleaning

    The service is available 7 days a week from 6am to 10pm.

    An Individual Care Package

    The service is tailored to individual needs and delivered by carefully selected, trained and experienced Home Care staff. For clients' security all our carers are provided with ID badges.

    How to access the service

    For further information contact your local Social Services team or phone us and we can help with the application process.

    How much will it cost?

    The cost varies - it is determined by an assessment process carried out in your own home by ourselves and Social Services.

    The Home Care Service runs from 6am to 10pm every day.



Respite Care at Home Scheme

Do you live with an adult you care for? Do you need to take a break? We can help!

What is the Scheme?

This scheme enables carers to have time away from the person they care for, safe in the knowledge that they will be looked after in the familiar surroundings of their own home.

What can the Carers do?

Our Respite Carers can carry out a variety of tasks including personal care, night sitting, preparing food, shopping and cleaning.

They can work times that best suit you - from a couple of hours to a whole week.

Will I have to pay?

Your local council will pay the majority of the cost, but you will be asked for a small contribution.

How do I access the service?

The scheme is run by your local council. If you'd like to join, contact your local Social Services team. If you'd like assistance with the application process, we'll be happy to help.

Please contact your local social services team or call us on 020 8767 1619 for more information.

The Respite Home Care Service is a 24-hour service that runs every day.

Community Outreach

We provide a befriending service to isolated and housebound elderly people. Our Outreach Worker and team of volunteers visit our clients for 1-2 hours per week. The scheme offers companionship and practical caring, which involves participation in activities and trips.

In the last year we have arranged a holiday to Jamaica for some of the centre's clients, which proved a great success. We were able to arrange Carer's grants through Wandsworth Council to help towards the cost of the trip.

Community Outreach runs from 9.30am to 4.30pm Monday to Friday.
