Home Help Services
Home Helps work with vulnerable people in the community, who through illness or disability are in need of help with day to day tasks. A home help might visit for a couple of hours per day, to help with housework, shopping, or sometimes may provide more personal care like help with dressing, bathing etc. You can access this service through your Public Health Nurse.
