Home help

For most people, growing older means that there are times when you find it difficult to manage with day-to-day living activities. You may realise you need help, or you may be caring for a friend or family member who needs help, but you just don't know where to start or what help you can get. There are many different types of homehelp services we provide to support you, whatever your needs. The following are some examples of what we offer when help is needed around the house:

Light Housekeeping

Castle Homecare’s light housekeeping service combines a number of our services in one package. Basic housework and housekeeping tasks such as laundry, meal preparation, shopping assistance and miscellaneous housework is all part of the service, which is tailored to each individual based on requirements.  As old age advances, housework and everyday tasks around the house often become more problematic and energy sapping, which can lead to many important tasks being neglected. In particular, tasks such as cleaning out the fridge, cleaning down surfaces thoroughly, changing bed clothes, dusting, ironing etc… tend to become less and less of a priority in our later years, but remain as important as ever.


Shopping & Meals

As age creeps up on us, tasks we have carried out diligently throughout our adult life, such as shopping and preparing meals, can become difficult and daunting. As a result, the quality of the food and subsequently the nutritional balance in our diet can suffer. Having a good diet is important at all points in our lives, but is particularly vital in youth and old age. Our bodies need to be given every advantage at these vulnerable times, and a healthy diet is a major factor. Castle Homecare can provide carers who can assist with shopping and meal preparation.


Personal Laundry

Castle Homecare can provide a personal laundry service, helping individuals who are finding it difficult in later life to complete such tasks.

Our carers can help you with all basic washing & drying tasks, in addition to helping with ironing if required. Our commitment is to helping you or your loved one in times of need, and making life as easy & comfortable as possible for the people who need our help



We know everyone’s needs are different, so all of our services can be tailored to suit your needs. We can provide assistance with home living from light housework to full-time care.
