We are open to help Seniors with Home Care during the lockdown in Kent

Once again, with the second wave of Covid-19, it has become more difficult for some Elderly People (Seniors) to live independently.

Seniors Helping Seniors is a unique and award winning elderly home care business, which carefully matches loving, caring and compassionate active seniors with the heart of a volunteer, to less active seniors who need companionship and help with those activities of everyday living that we all take for granted when we are younger, in their own homes.

Our services include companionship, meal preparation, light housekeeping, light DIY and gardening, transportation to appointments or important visits, shopping, pet care and so much more. We do not offer medical or personal care. See more at our website or on Facebook.

For the services we provide, we match good hearted, caring, giving, active senior people who want to help those needing the help. Senior helpers can relate better to older clients, there is more common ground, and our carer/helpers can develop great long term relationships and end up feeling more like friends (but without any feeling of being a burden to a friend as this is also a commercial relationship).

There are many brilliant people out there in their 40's, 50's, 60's or even 70's who want to do something meaningful and gainful, but do not want to work full time. They may feel 'too young' to be retired, and we help these people by matching them with those who need their assistance.

We are very selective, interviewing them all personally, taking up references, conducting an enhanced DBS police check etc. We never recruit anyone who "just needs a job". Our team includes ex-nurses, ex-falls clinic staff as well as people from every other walk of life that want to put something back.

Seniors Helping Seniors is not a charity but rather a unique 'Profit for Purpose' social venture, we charge clients a very reasonable charge and pay our senior companions/helpers above the national living wage. We don't get any government funding.

Seniors Helping Seniors is signposted by the Kent and Medway CCG, they also presented a case study using only Seniors Helping Seniors in their 5 year STP. Encompass Vanguard (a grouping of 13 GP Medical Practices in Kent) signposts SHS through their Community Hubs and described them as "perfect primary care" in their public STP case study, resulting in improved social, emotional and practical wellbeing for patients. We regularly receive referrals from Kent Social Services, Imago, Age UK, Doctor's Surgeries and a wide range of other medical professionals.

If you are a Senior and need help, please call us today. We have branches across Kent.
