An organisation which operates 11 residential care homes across Sheffield is taking its care services out into the wider community.

The Sheffcare Home Care Service will see a range of services offered to clients in their own homes.

Personal care, bathing and dressing, meal preparation and cooking help, medication support, shopping or help with shopping, a befriending and companion service, a sitting service to provide carers with breaks, and support for access to social activities will all be offered.

Annette Johnson, Sheffcare home care manager, said: “Increasingly, we are finding people are wanting the security of a good support system without necessarily wanting to enter residential care.”

The new service launches on November 1. For details, call 0114 272 4366.
