Need help at home?

Want to stay in your own home, but need some extra support? We’ll work with you to put together a plan to help you maximise your independence.

At Enliven, we know that maintaining independence as you get older can be a real challenge. We’re here to help you find the right support so you can remain in your own home, keep healthy, and stay connected with your friends, family and community.

We will work with you to put together a plan that meets your needs and helps you reach your own goals. Then we make it happen with top-quality support from our caring and experienced staff.

What do you need?

Support to get out and about?

To help you stay active and connected with others, we offer a range of community day programmes, including conversation cafes, home share groups and pool programmes.
