An Elderly Carer That’s Matched to You

The Seniors Helping Seniors services are award-winning and person-centred. We know all of our elderly carers well and we carefully match your carer to you. The same person will provide your care and you will be introduced personally before service starts. Your care is managed flexibly for your complete peace of mind and we will always be available with solutions for back up and emergencies.

At Seniors Helping Seniors, we’re here to help the elderly live well and safely in their own home.  Our carers are mature and experienced. Plus, we work with the NHS, social care services, and other care companies in the community including local GPs and local charities e.g Age UK.

Activities Are So Important

In the days before COVID-19 we took clients to swimming, yoga and specialist chair based yoga classes, and we walked as often as we could with clients. We  went to events, museums, coffee shops and more. Now we help our clients shield and so we maintain as many activities as possible within the guidelines and where necessary we support our clients to attend classes and activities on Zoom. 

We are not yoga teachers but by accompanying our clients online as fellow students following instructions, the teacher feels confident in safety and the client is more likely to keep up the activities.

We can help clients get online to connect with family and friends too - encouragement is everything!
