The Home Support Service offers assistance on a social and practical level. We promote positive attitudes towards ageing and to encourage older people to live their lives with dignity and independence in their own homes for as long as possible.
The scheme covers Crediton & District and has been working hard with and for older people throughout Crediton & the surrounding areas since 2013.
We aim to promote the well-being of all older people and to help make their lives a more fulfilling and enjoyable experience.

The Home Support Service - what it can provide
The Home Support Service can offer assistance on a social and practical level. It aims to support older people and their carers to maintain as independent and as full a life as possible.
Practical support in the home
To prevent, wherever possible, admission to residential or institutional care:
To relieve loneliness and isolation by keeping regular contact and encouraging neighbourhood care;
To keep older people well-informed of the care services available to them.
What you can expect
Kate, the coordinator of the Home Support Team, with your prior consent, will visit you at home to find if we can offer any help.
Provided that volunteers are available, Kate will arrange to bring a volunteer to your home to introduce you to each other.
We will keep in touch with you on a regular basis.
