Home Support and Relocation for Older People (Shears)

Shears is an independent service, based in Hertfordshire, providing information, advice and practical support for the carers of older people, through a unique range of Home Support (for help at home) and Relocation (for help moving) services.

Whether the person you care for wants to remain independent in their present home or move to more suitable accommodation, there are a number of decisions to make, many with emotional, practical and financial consequences. Shears offers a 'one-stop shop' to help you navigate and demystify the issues, clarify the options and make well-informed decisions. They aim to hold your hand throughout the whole process and take some of the stress and weight of responsibility from you. From generic advice to full hands-on support, we will do as little or as much as you want.

The service is caring, confidential, independent and based on individual circumstances and requirements. Prices are therefore tailored accordingly.
