Assist Teignbridge

"Promoting volunteering & support to those in need by reason of age, disability, or caring duties."

Who We Help, Why We Help & the Difference It Makes

As our name suggests, we are ‘here to help’. Our primary focus is on providing support, at home, to the elderly, those living with dementia, other vulnerable people, and their carers. We help people to remain living independently in their own homes; assisting with those tasks they find challenging and can no longer manage themselves.

We also want to support people to lead independent lives and continue participating in their local community. This also includes adopting approaches that will enable people living with dementia to remain active in their communities.

Additional Info

That means putting the person’s needs first and trying to deliver a service that meets their needs. We also recognise that what is important to one person may be unnecessary,or even undesirable, to another.

Through all our actions it is our belief that people should be treated with dignity, compassion, and respect. We also recognise that we should support people to recognise their own abilities and strengths and that we should enable them as much as possible to live independent and fulfilling lives.
