About Us

Senior Help Southampton is owned and managed by Bob and Kate Woolley.

They have always lived in the local area and have played an active and influential role within the community.

Bob was an Acting Inspector in the Hampshire Special Constabulary and has been a volunteer in countless community projects.  Kate has a passion for animal care and wildlife and is deeply committed to making a positive difference to the lives of older people.

The fight to keep loneliness and isolation at bay from elderly people is at the heart of what we do.  Born from experience with our own ageing relatives, we’re driven to ease the pressure on families and provide affordable non-medical care of the highest quality.  Senior Help will work with you to ensure that the right person is there for your relatives when they need them.  With Senior Help, you’ll be in safe hands.

Companionship

Bringing joy and meaning to lonely lives.

An increasingly fractured society and an ageing population have led to an epidemic of loneliness amongst the elderly. There's a proven link between loneliness and dementia. Our carers will keep isolation at bay. Sometimes having someone to talk to is the most important thing in the world.

A regular visit each day will bring focus and something to look forward to.

The ability to share thoughts and memories.

Someone who has the time to listen without time pressures.

Respite Care

Caring for both Carers and Clients.

Sometimes with the best will in the world, you may need a break from an intense period of caring for a family member. We can ease this burden. You can rest easy knowing that your loved one is being cared for while you take a break.

Time off for a relative who may be juggling care with their own work or family.

After having been in hospital, we can spend more time with your relative. The less lonely they are, the quicker the healing process.

If you're going on holiday, we can take over the care until you're back.

Respite Care Services Include

  • Provide a break for the main carer
  • Peace of mind when the main carer not available
  • Allow carer to recuperate

Fresh Meals

Taking care of physical needs helps improve mental function.

Older people find it harder to get the nutrition they need from the food they eat. Often when food is prepared for them, they’re more likely to eat – especially if they have company whilst eating.

We can prepare simple meals for them to eat whenever they choose.

Each carer will get to know what their client likes and can ensure the cupboards are filled.

Sometimes older people need reminding or encouraging to eat something.
