Home support and maintenance services available to over 65s. These include general cleaning, hairdressing, gardening, pruning, and many more.

Home Support and Maintenance Services

Charges for home help services and gardening are kept as low as possible and payment is directly between client and provider. All people who offer their services as home support providers are interviewed, referee and police checked. When a request is received from a client, our coordinator contacts the provider who gets in touch with the client and the work is completed.

The home help services were established in 1976 and include help with housework and footcare etc. Hairdressers are also available to visit in the home. Home help services are one of Age Concern Canterbury’s most positive contributions to the objective of keeping older people independent and in their own homes as long as possible.
