Ask A Sister - Personal assistants for Independent Living Help

Working in Teignbridge areas and Torbay, Ask A Sister is helping people enjoy independent living in South Devon, by providing companionship and practical support, to help with everyday tasks that now seem just that little bit more difficult!

Ask A Sister is about helping people here in South Devon towards independent living and coping with everyday tasks just that little bit more difficult. We can provide the following.

Companion driving for shopping, hospital visits, general outings, etc.

  • Well being
  • Enabler
  • Personal assistant
  • Shopping
  • Household cleaning
  • Light Gardening
  • General companionship
  • Meal preparation
  • Courtesy visits
  • Staying at home longer with assistance
  • Activities to keep you busy

We have an hourly rate of £15 per hour plus mileage when we are using our own vehicle to provide a companion driving service. We feel it is important to fully understand how we can help, so we like to have a meeting just to get to know one another, listen carefully to what you want and assess your personal needs. We have current disclosure certification and insurance, so safety and reassurance that you are in good hands is foremost in our minds.
