1st choice in supporting independence

Living at home, surrounded by your own possessions, is a comfort that everyone values. But sometimes this can become difficult. Special needs that can come with injury, ill health, disability, or advancing age can make it harder for people to maintain their independence.

HomeCare's Mission is: TOGETHER; preserving independence, dignity and quality of life for people living at home requiring support.

We provide quality care and support for those people who require help to stay in their own homes, regardless of ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation, gender or age.

If you are finding it hard to cope with everyday activities such as personal hygiene, cooking or housework – and don’t want to give up your independence - contact The Salvation Army HomeCare.

Our aim: Our vision is to be your first choice in supporting independence. We will develop with you an individual Care Plan to provide personal care and / or practical home support.
