Transport and trips out

Our friendly Helpers are available to safely transport you to appointments, visits and trips out. This might be shopping or a GP appointment.

Transport and trips out

The support your Helper provides can be particularly reassuring if you’re anxious about facing medical consultations or new and challenging situations alone.

Time and Distance

There are no limits to where you can go - you would just need to discuss the arrangements with your Helper, especially with any visits that may be outside of your regular visits. You can use your time to go wherever you may need. This could be a medical appointment, lunch, to the shops or day out. One of our customers has recently had their Helper accompany them on a day trip to Jersey!

Paying for Mileage Costs

Mileage costs for transport, trips and out and going shopping are not included in your Helper’s hourly rate and will be charged in addition. It is best to pre-agree this with your Helper so you are both aware of these arrangements prior to any trips. If you have any questions about this you can discuss it with our friendly team who will always be happy to advise.

Nicky is lovely, she really cares about my dad and takes time to listen to him. She tries to make their outings interesting. Supporting him shopping and getting his hair cut really helps us, but also keeps dad feeling independent.
