The aim of Helpmates is to help people carry on living independently in their home. Clients can have a friendly helper to assist with their cleaning, laundry, gardening or pet-care. There will be a charge for this service.

Laurel Roberts, Chief Officer at Qube, said; “We’re really pleased to be setting up this worthwhile scheme. Many people want to carry on living independently but need just a little bit of outside help with some of the day-to-day tasks like making the bed. That’s what Helpmates will provide.”

Qube will be making sure the same Helpmates staff member visits each week so they can really get to know their client’s needs. All of the staff will have been fully trained by Qube and had all relevant checks through the Disclosure and Baring Service (DBS).

The Helpmates scheme is being set up thanks to funding assistance from the Welsh Assembly Government Intermediate Fund.

If you would like to know more about Helpmates or to register your interest for yourself or someone else, please call Kim at Qube on 01691 656882 or email info@qube-oca.org.uk.
