But members can just meet for a chat over a cup of tea or coffee, or for a game of cards. These opportunities to get involved in your local community are available through Live at Home using our fantastic network of staff and volunteers.
By giving up some of your free time you can have the satisfaction of knowing you are making a real difference to the lives of older people in your local community.

How can Live at Home help? The service also provides transport to members who would not normally be able to travel independently so that they can join the group too.
There are three ways a scheme might provide an assisted shopping service: There might also be additional services for Christmas shopping!
Often based around coffee mornings, these clubs are a chance for members to get together, have some fun and company and enjoy an activity.
Promoting physical wellbeing, many Live at Home Schemes offer varied and interesting exercise classes to encourage members to keep active and mobile.
All classes are designed to be as inclusive as possible so that members of all physical abilities are able to take part. Many schemes arrange daily telephone calls to check on a person to make sure he or she is alright and offer reassurance.
If there is no answer or there is a cause for concern, the volunteer caller can inform the next of kin or relevant service.
Some schemes also provide telephone prompts to members as reminders for appointments or other key dates. A key part of independence is being able to get out and about.
Hourly companions are available for as little as one hour, and up to 24 hours a day. They provide all non medical services including assistance in home.
Some seniors call independent, assisted, or skilled nursing facilities home. Live at Home can provide just the support needed to help those seniors.
We originally had help for mom provided by a large franchise. Disappointed with constantly changing assistants and frequent no shows, we switched to Live at Home.
Could not be happier! In planning for my hip replacement surgery, I called Live at Home. After surgery, my husband would return to work. I knew I would need help to get through the day until I was more fully recovered.
Lori met with me before surgery and returned after surgery to introduce my helper.
