Home Assistance

The services you need, for the life you want

Life has a way of changing when you least expect it. And if that means you need some extra help around the house, someone to drive you to your community get together or a willing hand to help you start the day in good shape, we’re here to help.

Everyone’s different, and we all need different things to feel truly at home. Our experienced carers will work with you to make sure you enjoy the best possible independence and quality of life. We’ll take the time to understand what’s important to you, and what it is you need to feel comfortable and at ease in your home.

Personal care

Bolton Clarke carers can help you regain or maintain your independence by helping you with a number of daily activities, such as dressing and bathing yourself.

Your comfort and dignity is our top priority and our experienced support workers will make sure you’re always treated with kindness and respect.

Our personal care services include:

  • showering and bathing
  • dressing and undressing
  • getting in and out of bed
  • toileting
  • using safety equipment at home
Respite care

Bolton Clarke knows that as a carer, your health and wellbeing is as important as the person you’re caring for. We provide short term respite care at home that allows you to take a break from your support role.

Respite care provides relief to you and the person you’re caring for by having a qualified Aide take over care duties temporarily. You can then spend some ‘me time’ to look after your own wellbeing and needs.

Respite allows carers time to:

  • take a break
  • take care of personal business
  • maintain relationships outside of their role as a carer
Social support and restorative activities*

We can work with you to create an exercise or socialisation programme to help you regain mobility and a fuller life.

Staying engaged with your family, friends and local community is important – whether that’s keeping up with your hobbies, joining a bowling club, attending a Tai Chi class or having a swim. Bolton Clarke carers can help you research and organise the activities that are important to you.

We can also help you access social and community services and support groups, such as disability, stroke or arthritis foundations. And sometimes, just share a cup of tea and chat.
