Sitting for Carers

Being a Carer is often a very time consuming and difficult role, both emotionally and physically.

That is why we offer a service aimed at giving Carers a little time to themselves – whether it may be to go shopping, read a book, or attend that special social occasion.

Our Home Support Assistants are able to sit with (or take out for a walk, drive or visit) those who need care. The service often benefits both the Carer and the patient, giving the Carer a much needed break, and the patient someone new to talk to/be with.

Please be aware that our assistants would not be able to do any physical caring such as feeding / washing / administering medicines.

All of our staff have Enhanced DBS Certificates.

If you would like to know more about this service, please go to the Home Services page or call the Help Scheme on 01404 813041.
