Age UK Norfolk extends Home Support and Care Service to North Norfolk residents
Older residents in North Norfolk can now enjoy longer periods of independence and companionship as Age UK Norfolk’s Home Support and Care service extends its network of SupportGivers.
The Home Support and Care service is designed to help older residents who are still living at home with anything from household tasks to shopping and offers friendly companionship so that family members are able to spend more quality time with their loved ones and less time on chores. The Home Support and Care service, which operates as a social enterprise, was previously only available in Norwich and Kings Lynn, but has now been extended to cover the whole of Norfolk. Home Support and Care SupportGivers are available for regular or occasional visits from as little as one hour up to eight hours a day, five days a week.
Home Support and Care Manager, Josie Moore says:
“As a trusted local charity Age UK Norfolk has over 65 years experience in providing services for older people across Norfolk. We are proud to help clients to live independently – giving them more opportunities to socialise and enjoy later life. We are delighted to now be able to extend our Home Support and Care service to residents in North Norfolk and hope that we can help to enhance the lives of the local older community.”
