Time out of the house with
the support you need


For some people, whether due to mobility issues, disability, mental health challenges or just a lack of confidence, getting out and about alone can be difficult, if not impossible.

Our staff can take you where you would like to go and stay with you to provide care and company. The destination is your choice and we have been asked for help with many different types of outings.

Whether you want help to do simple everyday tasks such as grocery shopping or would like a day out at the seaside, our staff can support you to achieve it.

• Grocery shopping

• Visiting a café or restaurant

• Christmas shopping

• Attending a church service

• Visiting a garden centre

• Seeing a film or performance at the cinema/theatre

• Hospital, hospice or care home visiting

• Laying flowers in a cemetery or church yard

• Doctors and dental appointments

• Going to social activities and clubs

Out and about

We help older people with dementia, physical frailty, learning difficulties and those who just feel more confident and safe with someone alongside them.

Please contact us to talk about the support you need to get out and about. Whatever the reason for the trip or wherever you want to go, our staff will support you to achieve it and to enjoy it. You can also complete our online enquiry form and we’ll call you back.
