Help with tasks at home such as gardening and cleaning

If you're a carer, getting help at home with tasks that you might struggle with, such as cleaning and gardening, can help give you a break.

  • Some charities have local schemes that may be able to help. Age UK may have a handyperson or home help service in your area.
  • Ask your local carer service what is available in your area or you could contact your local council to see if they have a list of approved tradesmen.
  • Alternatively, you can arrange this yourself privately. See if anyone you know has a gardener or cleaner that they would recommend.
