Older People's Services

CHS Group (CHS) recognises that as people get older they often want a home which is more manageable and provides security, support and peace of mind to the individual and their family. Below are various housing options please click on the links below for more information.

Local Community Services

We also offer various services within your own home, designed to make life a little easier for older people. These are only available in the Melbourn area at present, but we are planning to extend them to other areas in due course.

These services can include:

  • CHS Homecare - our fully trained carers visit you in your home
  • Sitting Service - a visit from our experienced staff gives family carers time for themselves
  • Day Centre - based at Moorlands Court and Alex Wood House with friendly and sociable atmosphere and includes a home cooked two course lunch
  • Meals Service - nutritious, hot lunch time meal delivered to your door
  • Housekeeping - we do those jobs which you can no longer manage, from cleaning and ironing, to bed changing and shopping

To find out more about these service please call: Moorlands Court on 01763 260564 or email denise.taylor@chsgroup.org.uk
