Home Help

Independent Living

Who wants any Tom, Dick or Harry entering their home or any random ‘cleaning’ franchise without suitably trained staff or insurance blundering through their unmentionables?  “Not me!” we hear you shout.  Then you’ve come to the right place.

Age Concern is THE trusted brand for helping people live independently in their own homes.  Our reputation is built over many years and is second to none.

To this day and despite all the newfangled technology, our largest referral source is word of mouth.  That’s happy customers recommending Age Concern to their friends and families because we bring home the bacon, literally!

We pride ourselves on delivering a tailored service that is bespoke to individual needs and we strive to put you at the heart of everything we do.

Our greatest asset is the staff we employ as they do the job because they ‘love it!’.

Careful consideration is given to matching staff with customers to ensure you get the best possible service and a consistent point of contact.
