Supporting Local Family Carers with Community & Compassion

Caring for an older relative or a spouse in later life, can be an emotional, challenging, as well as a rewarding journey. At Home Instead Wandsworth, we understand that family caregivers often benefit hugely from a local support network who understand their needs and unique situations. Our involvement in the local community, coupled with our exceptional home care services and experience of caring for older adults, demonstrate our commitment to our clients, older adults and their family carers in our local area in South London.

Community cafes in our local area of South London

At our friendly community cafes, we believe that social interaction can make a big difference, in lifting everyone’s spirits and also in providing practical assistance and the comfort of being with others. These cosy gatherings, assembled in collaboration with like-minded organisations including Age UK and Dementia Friends and King’s College London are regular spaces that welcome caregivers and the older adults they look after.
