Our Place Wye, in partnership with Wye Surgery, has set up a support service to provide help and support in your own home, if you have been unwell, have a disability, or feel a bit isolated.
Anyone living in the parish of Wye who might need a little help with everyday tasks, or some companionship and support.
Home visits, usually weekly to start with, by trained volunteers. They will be able to carry out everyday tasks, such as light housework, collecting prescriptions, a bit of shopping, or making a cup to tea and having a chat.
All our volunteers have gone through appropriate training and full DBS checks before coming to visit you. An initial visit will be made by the coordinator and if you’re happy to go ahead, a volunteer will visit you for an initial period of up to four weeks. This could be for about an hour per week, or a couple of shorter visits. After this, you can decide whether you would like us to continue with the visits. If you require more help or long term assistance, then our volunteers are happy and equipped to signpost you to the relevant agencies to get you the help you need.
Anyone can refer you to our service. This might include:
If you’ve got any questions or would like some help from Wye Community Companions, you can contact us by calling 07547 321046.
