We can help with a range of varying support needs, including but not limited to, help with form filling and mail, domestic assistance whilst promoting independence, medication prompts, accessing education or training and promoting social engagement.
Wellbeing: for people age 60+: Providing support for people age 60+ this service helps people manage their tenancy and promotes social engagement, as age related health and mobility concerns reduce their confidence.
