Domestic support is available in your home

Keeping things clean and tidy in your own home can get tougher as you get older. Vacuuming and laundry can be harder to manage, shopping becomes a chore, and arranging and getting to appointments is difficult.

Help is at hand as Birchwood Care Services has a small, friendly team that can help with domestic chores so that you don’t need to worry about them. This could be part of a wider care package, or perhaps you have a relative who would benefit from some domestic support in their home.

We can assist with:

  • Domestic chores – such as preparing and/or cooking meals, laundry, ironing, tidying, vacuuming, cleaning and washing up
  • Shopping – including putting a list together & unpacking
  • Household management – including dealing with mail and household bills
  • Companionship – in the home and out and about
  • Appointments – including making bookings and transport to and from appointments
  • Caring for pets – feeding but not walking
  • Sitting service – so that carers or loved ones can enjoy a break
  • Excursions – including days out and trips to enjoy hobbies or catch up with friends

Mary is one of our Domestic Support Workers and spends her time visiting clients at home and assisting with household chores whilst keeping them company.

“A typical working day for me might include visiting 3 to 4 clients in their own homes to assist with any household chores, shopping, preparing meals, relieving carers for breaks, spending time talking, or doing activities they enjoy with them.  The needs are very individual and varied,” explained Mary.

Domestic support workers cover homes in an area that takes in Tonbridge and Tunbridge Wells and surrounding villages.

Niral Patel, Chief Executive of Birchwood Care, added: “We always try and be as flexible as we can. We will work with the clients, we will always look at individual requests and do our best to accommodate what is being requested, as long it observes Health and Safety guidelines.”

You can have a no-obligation chat with Care Services by calling 01892 863710 and talk through what you need to make life easier for you or a relative.
