Care Network’s ‘Help at Home’ Cambridgeshire

This service offers free, practical, volunteer help to people who are unwell or have a crisis at home, are returning home from a hospital stay, or are in need of help with a one-off task to help them stay independent.

Checked and trained volunteers give practical and emotional support for up to three weeks to help people regain their independence. They will call in to check people are OK, help with tasks such as picking up prescriptions, collecting shopping and linking people with other services like meals on wheels. One-off tasks may include changing a light bulb or cutting back an overhanging shrub (donations are welcomed for one-off tasks).

Contact Care Network to find out more. Help at Home doesn’t replace statutory services or services reasonably available elsewhere.
