Seniors Helping Seniors has an abundance of brilliant carers in every location. Our carer centric approach to care started twenty five years ago. It is natural and easy to understand how and why it works so well and sustainably.
Around The House
Our carers enjoy friendly conversation and companionship just as much as those they care for. Regular interactions with a kind, friendly carer can help lift a senior’s spirits and help with practicalities.
Our carers can assist with light housekeeping services that include cleaning kitchens, dusting, vacuuming, sweeping, mopping, cleaning bathrooms, taking out the rubbish and recycling, laundry and organising clothes, drawers and wardrobes as well as general tidying around the home – jobs can be as big or as small as is required – our focus is anything to keep clients feeling in control and inspired by their surroundings.
Pets can be extremely important to a senior’s mental, emotional, and physical health. Nevertheless, caring for a pet can become more challenging with age. Our carers can help ensure that pets are getting the attention they need to stay healthy and happy; by feeding and grooming pets, and taking dogs on walks.
Light Handyman Services and Small Repairs
Our in-home senior care services can include the tackling of simple projects and minor repairs. If a particular service is beyond what our carer can handle, they may be able to give some insight on what’s involved and help find the service person to contact and oversee the work.
While fresh air and sunlight can do wonders for people, gardening can become taxing and a source of worry and upset. Our cares can assist with mowing, weeding, and other outdoor projects. Clients can participate to whatever degree they are interested and able.
Adhering to prescribed regimen is extremely important for our clients. While our companion carers do not administer medication, they can provide back up and reminders to our clients. Assisting with medical appointments and prompting medication can ensure our clients stay well.
If the business registers with the CQC, qualified carers can administer medications.
Mailing Letters and Bills
Staying on top of correspondence becomes more challenging as we age. Our carers can help clients stay up to date with correspondence and family events. Helping with the buying and sending of cards, presents, letters, and dealing with bills as requested and instructed.
Safety and Fall Prevention
Falls can be very serious and often lead to spiralling decline in health and independence. Our carers take caring and common-sense approach, making corrections or recommending professionals when needed. Our focus on well-being, nutrition, hydration and exercise has been proven to reduce risks.
Out and About
Escort to Appointments and Events
Getting out to visit friends, to attend events and appointments is great for a senior’s mental, emotional, and physical health. When a senior is unable to make trips on their own, our carers can provide transportation to things like doctor appointments, hairdressers or barber appointments, social functions, family gatherings, community events and exercise classes. Our carers participate to offer confidence as needed. Our local knowledge ensures our carers are able to make suggestions that will inspire our clients.
In addition to food and shopping, our carers can run errands including getting prescriptions and other necessities at the pharmacy, picking up dry cleaning, shopping for pet food, and much more. Clients are always welcome to ride along. Dealing with the things that play on the mind, provides essential support and peace of mind for busy families.
Outings and Trips
Getting out and about is hugely valuable. Our carers are not taxi drivers but they can provide and facilitate the right transportation and they accompany clients. We make outings of routine events and provide confidence. Assistance during GP and medical appointments as well as rapid and friendly transfer for hospitalisation and outpatient procedures can be a key benefit. Clients report less anxiety around appointments. We also take trips out to the cinema, theatre, , concerts and exhibitions. Company and outings always broadens horizons.

Dementia and Alzheimer's Care

Caring for a senior family member is very rewarding, but it can also be mentally and emotionally draining. Taking time away to “recharge” periodically is one of the best things family members can do for themselves, their relationship with other family members and the loved one living with challenges. Our carers can provide intermittent or ongoing respite care, for an afternoon, evening, or for overnight stays. Our same-person carer policy provides trust and reassurance and it saves time because the carer knows the home, the family and the routines. Peace of mind that carers arrive on time means family members can book their activities and time away with confidence. It is common for our businesses to be asked to support clients while families take a holiday.
