In partnership with Age Concern Orkney, the Trust has supported the development of a “home care” support service for members of the community aged 60+ years old and who find themselves needing a little helping hand. The cost of the service, managed by Age Concern Orkney is normally £15 per hour however, the Trust will subsidise this by £7.50.
Three members of the community have been recruited as service providers and after some localised training the service will be available from mid June.
The service aims at supporting those who sometimes need a little practical help which is all that’s needed to make life easier and more comfortable.
Whether it’s help with housework, laundry, shopping, preparing meals or even stocking the freezer with home cooked meals we’ll try to find a worker that can provide it.
The paid workers will be disclosure checked, trained and insured for the customers peace of mind.
