Although most of our older residents who live across our 6 sheltered schemes are fit and active, some do require a little extra help with domestic chores around their home such as hovering, laundry, or changing bed linen. For this reason, HCHA has been running the in-house Busy Bees Service at some of our schemes over the past ten years.
As our clients are getting older but still wish to remain mostly independent, the demand for this service is steadily increasing. There are many benefits of expanding this in-house service and because we’re a trusted provider with staff that are all CRB checked and offer reasonable hourly rates, many of our clients would prefer to use our service than that of an unchecked freelancer or an expensive agency.
We are currently looking at ways of rolling out the Busy Bees Service across all of our sheltered housing schemes and will be providing further details shortly.
In the meanwhile if you would like to book a Busy Bee at your scheme please get in touch with your scheme manager.
