Domestic Duties

At the best of times, most of us find it difficult to maintain the domestic duties of the home.  As we get older, the demands of domestic duties can become too much to manage. At Bridgewater Home Care we have a team of people who thrive when performing domestic duties and are well equipped to provide this support and ensure that all the necessary household tasks are carried out to a high standard.

Whether it is help with the cleaning around the home, or help making a cup of tea – our Care Specialists will always be there for your loved one, whatever the request.

Our priority is ensuring the home environment is safe and clean in order to maintain a happy and enjoyable living space and give your loved one the freedom to choose how they spend their time.

At Bridgewater Home Care we pride ourselves in going ‘Above and Beyond’, always, ensuring that physical and emotional support is there for your loved one. Our domestic care services include all sorts of essential, as well as non-essential tasks around the house.

Our home help and housekeeping services include:

    • Lightweight housework – A clean, tidy house always feels comfortable and inviting. Our Care Specialists can help with any light day-to-day housework to ensure the living environment remains a cosy and safe place to relax.
