Assist Teignbridge

Assist Teignbridge is an award-winning charity which provides a number of services to support the elderly, those living with dementia and their carers. We are passionate about supporting people to live independent and fulfilling lives, treating them at all times with dignity, compassion, and respect. Each service user is an individual and faces their own challenges. Establishing a service which is personalised for their own needs is an important aspect of our home assessments.

Life can become increasingly challenging, especially if there are issues with mobility, sight, hearing and memory; these factors, in particular, can become a barrier to accessing the local community and to continuing to engage in the activities that are important to the individual. We aim to support people to lead independent lives and continue participating in their local community, doing the things they enjoy, for as long as possible. When this is no longer achievable, we aim to support them to have a quality of life within their means. 

Our support includes practical help around the home to support independent living, giving carers a break from their caring role during the day and overnight, providing some personal care services including nail trimming, providing companionship and befriending and helping people get to and from appointments and social meetings. We also provide information, helping to signpost people to the help they need.
