I offer:
* Companionship, and a helping hand with things like:
* Shopping – I can take you shopping, or can do the shopping for you.
* Appointments – I can take you to and from the hospital, GP, hairdresser’s, manicure etc.

* Prepare meals and make cups of tea.
* Cleaning and laundry – I can also help with decluttering, and sorting stuff out for charity shops etc.
* Gardening – Although I am not a gardening expert, I don’t mind getting my hands dirty, and can at least help with weeding, clearing and tidying up.
* Respite – I can hold the fort so that family members can go out for a few hours, and can stay the night on occasion.
* Pet Sitting and Walking – I love animals, and will take great care of your beloved pets if you need to go into hospital, go on holiday, or even when you are home, I can even take your dog for walks.

I can put together an individual support plan of your needs and requirements, which can be reviewed regularly and altered if need be. You are the one in control of how you want things done.
