The Horsfall House Home Care Service was created to care for those living in their own homes but in need of support. For many in the area it is a friendly and proactive lifeline that enables them to stay in their homes for as long as possible.
Home Care is available daily from 7am to 11pm and can help with all elements of personal care and/or general household duties, including:
As well as these more practical services we can also provide a carer for longer periods of time to provide companionship and support regularly or whilst the main carer takes a break.
In addition, together with other agencies, such as the district nursing teams and Macmillan Nursing, our highly trained staff can support those who are in the end stages of life to remain in their home if they choose to do this.
