We help Lewisham carers to care
with specialist home care services

By taking over the carer’s role for a few hours each week we give each carer the break they need to be able to carry on looking after the person they care for at home. We provide care and social companionship in and around Lewisham – as we can prepare light meals, meet personal care needs and do light housekeeping jobs too.

We can offer highly skilled, friendly care workers who provide home care services such as: personal care, companionship, give medication and do bits of light housework.

Our customers’ first contact with us is with our care team, all of whom have been carers and therefore understand the needs of both the carer and the person they care for.

Help for Carers staff are trained to deal with a number of conditions, from Parkinson’s to Alzheimer’s and receive specialist training in dementia and autism, along with first aid, food hygiene, and health and safety. Covering all ages from young children through to the elderly.

CARE AT HOME

Help for Carers Homecare (Respite) Care Service is available every day and night of the year except Bank Holidays. Services start from as little as 2 hours per week.

MAKE AN ENQUIRY

The first step is to arrange a home-visit so we can carry out an assessment of your care needs.

CAREERS

We employ over 100 people in a range of jobs requiring high levels of knowledge, skill and passion to work with people with varying care support needs.

How we help David and Louise

Louise Hale is a full time carer for her husband, David, who has progressive multiple sclerosis, is registered blind and a full time wheelchair user. Help for Carers provides Mrs Hale with regular breaks from her caring responsibilities which enables her to leave the house and have essential “me” time for shopping, socialising and doing her gardening.

Help for Carers have a team of Care Support Workers who carry out several visits each week to Mr and Mrs Hale. They each take on the role of caring for David in Louise’s absence and also provide him with companionship, sharing his interests such as watching TV and films, completing crosswords and reading aloud.
