Time for You - Sitting Service

Being a Carer is often a very time consuming and difficult role, both emotionally and physically.

Our 'Time for You' service is aimed at giving Carers some time to themselves – whether to go shopping, read a book, or attend a weekly activity group - the choice is yours!

Our trained volunteers are able to sit with those who need care for an hour or two a week, providing companionship for the loved one and reassurance for the Carer.

This service is available for £5 per hour or is free if you have an assessment from Devon Carers in place.

Please be aware that we would not be able to do any physical caring such as feeding / washing / administering medicines.

All of our staff and volunteers have Enhanced DBS Certificates.

If you would like to know more about this service, please call Ottery Help Scheme on 01404 813041.
