Age UK Exeter - Enabling and Home Help Service

Support and practical help at home for the over 50's. We are local, reliable, flexible and sensitive, and whatever is on your mind or on your to-do list, we can support you to tackle it positively.

We can help with:

  • shopping and errands
  • paperwork and budgeting
  • bill paying
  • appointments
  • time off for carers
  • getting out and about
  • light housework and laundry
  • downsizing or planning ahead
  • problem-solving
  • accessing services and much else besides.

Our paid members of staff are mature, local people who are sensitive to your needs and what you want to achieve. Our aim is to support you to remain living independently in your own home and to offer a really flexible and friendly service to help you do that.

Age UK Exeter has been providing this service for over 20 years, and we deliver hundreds of hours of home support for older people across Exeter each month. We are one of Devon County Council's approved providers, and we pride ourselves on offering a high-quality service.

Please note that we are not able to offer personal care (help with using the bathroom, washing or dressing etc.), undertake medical tasks or be a keyholder for your property. Apart from that - we will try to be as flexible as we possibly can!

There is a charge for this service, unless elements of your care and support are funded by Social Services. We can talk to you about this when you make an enquiry.

Please don't hesitate to get in touch with your enquiry, there is no obligation.
