Look at public transport options if getting to and from the shops is difficult.

There are some services which will help you do your shopping and put it away too.


Keeping your home clean and tidy reduces the risk of falls. If you need help with cleaning search the lists of services that will clean for you.

Be mindful when choosing a service. Think about services where staff have been DBS checked. Also think about writing down exactly what you want from service and agree a price before starting.
