Home Support

What is Home Support?

The East Radnor Home Support is a pilot project being run by the East Radnorshire Day Centre and funded by Powys County Council.

The service is available to anyone aged 50+ living in Presteigne, Knighton and the wider communities encompassing surrounding villages approximately 10 miles from Presteigne.

Home Support is not a care agency but will be offering low level practical assistance to enable people to retain their independence.

Once registered you can use the services as little or as often as you need. We can offer one off help such as form filling or more regular assistance such as monitoring telephone calls.

How Can I Access the Service?

If you think we may be able to help you now or in the future, please telephone 01544 260360.

Initial contact will be with Senior Support Worker Nikki Ferguson; when some details will be taken and then a visit can be arranged to explain the service in more    detail.

It is free to become a member and once joined you can use services as little or as often as you need. We can help you with one off form filling for example or arranging an appointment.

Alternatively, we offer regular ongoing support.

We are a small team, therefore you will be introduced to all staff and will not feel like there is a stranger in your home.
