Age Concern Hampshire launches Help At Home Service for lonely people

A new service for those living in social isolation has been launched by Age Concern Hampshire.

Help at Home will give lonely people companionship, practical support and a sense of connection.

People can get help with household chores such as laundry, housework, meal preparation, and dog walking.

Operating across Hampshire, the service also seeks to promote wellbeing and mitigate feelings of loneliness, along with the associated risks of depression and cognitive decline.

All Home Helpers undergo DBS checks and receive training to provide companionship, aiding in the alleviation of social isolation and supporting independent living.

Hannah Park, head of operations at Age Concern Hampshire, said “With many older people needing additional help around the home, we are delighted to offer a cost-effective solution.

“Our Help at Home service not only offers practical help, but also provides companionship to help reduce feelings of loneliness.”

Help at Home services are tailored to meet individual needs and preferences. Clients choose the activities, and the frequency of the visits, and sessions can be booked for a fixed number of weeks – for example following a hospital discharge.
