Being apart needn’t mean being alone

Here for You

The restrictions necessary to stop the spread of the COVID-19 coronavirus have been hard for many people, not least those in the more vulnerable older age groups. Home Support can help loved ones not only feel better about being on their own during self-isolation, but actively encourages them to enjoy time spent at home while  ensuring they’re staying safe and well. It is a welcome reassurance for families when they can’t visit or help with loved ones needs.

Home Support keeps your loved ones independent

Isolating and shielding from the COVID-19 pandemic has been vital to staying safe – but it has also brought emotional stress, anxiety and loneliness, aside from the problems of staying healthy and eating well. The Home Support service from Home Instead is there to help everyone get through this difficult period.

How Home Support works

Whether it’s practical help with things like shopping and meal preparation or just a friendly face calling in every so often, with Home Support it’s taken care of. The service can be tailored to each individual’s needs:

  • Companionship (a friendly face for social enjoyment, including virtual contact)
  • Dietary support (food shopping, meal preparation)
  • Home help (support around the home including light housework and daily cleaning)
  • Emotional support (with anxiety, stress, loneliness, confidence)

How Home Support is enhanced by technology

We believe that while technology will never replace the human touch, it can improve peoples' lives. It can help older people stay connected and in touch with their family and friends around the world, as well as providing the peace of mind that they’re safe in their homes, 24 hours a day. Find out more about how we use technology here.

You’re not alone

We know how important being safe and connected is during isolation, and we’re here to help. Get in touch today, and we will be more than happy to explain how.
