Home Support

Most of us want to live independently in our own homes for as long as possible, but as we get older we may need some support and assistance. ACTS provides a wide range of services to help you at home.

The service is available to anyone, any age, who lives in South Tyneside and you can receive support on a weekly, fortnightly, monthly or one-off basis. Services can include but are not limited to:
• Cleaning

• Light meal preparation (and check your food is within ‘sell by’ dates)
• Odd jobs
• Grass cutting
• Provide companionship, sharing hobbies and interests
• Carrying out a full clean of your house including floors, windows, kitchens, bathrooms, washing-up
• Changing your bedding, do the laundry and ironing or simply put your clothes away
• Collect prescriptions, dry cleaning or shopping
• Odd jobs / DIY (fixtures & fittings, picture/mirror hanging, curtain poles, small painting jobs)
• Assist with paying bills, appointment making or planning an outing
• Grass cutting
• Walk a pet dog or return library books
• Help with telephone or internet shopping (if you have an internet connection)

The cost of the service is £15.00 per hour
