Enabling Independent Living
Erewash domestic services provides professional and friendly help with domestic tasks and runs a bespoke paid for befriending service, enabling older people and those with disabilities to remain in their homes.
Our Home Help service helps with those day to day domestic tasks
We tailor our service to each individual to provide a person centred approach
These are some of the tasks we can help with
All of our home helps are experienced, have passed a security check and have received full training.
How it Works
It's really simple to arrange our home help
Our home helpers are unable to support you with personal care such as dressing, bathing or medication.
Bespoke Befriending Service
Our Bespoke befriending service provides companionship and social support to elderly and disabled people who are isolated, vulnerable or lonely. For some people who live alone or are housebound it can be days before they speak to another person.
It may be that you just require some company, somebody to call in, check you are OK, perhaps read mail or the newspaper with you, play cards or make a cup of tea and have a chat and share what is going on in the world or reminisce about times gone by. If going out is something you wish to do but can no longer drive yourself or use public transport, your befriend-er can accompany you on social outings too.
There are many benefits for using a befriending service, people that are experiencing loneliness develop friendships and positive relationships. People have fun social interactions maintaining their social skills and it provides extra support and peace of mind for carers and family members.
We charge £13.50 for the Befriending service.
All of our befriending team have passed DBS checks.
How it Works
If you would like to use our befriending service, contact our assessor Jo, Who will arrange a home visit to discuss your needs and requirements. Then you will be matched with one of our befriending staff members. We will then arrange for you to meet with the befriending staff member at your home. If you are happy with the person that has been matched with you, we will then arrange for your bespoke befriending service to begin.
