Laundry and cleaning


Do you need help to do laundry, or to make sure your home is clean and tidy?

This can be challenging when you are older or are living with a disability.

This advice suggests some ways to overcome these difficulties so you can stay as independent as possible.

Support from people around you

Friends, family and trusted neighbours are often more than willing to help - you just need to ask.

You could consider allowing them to use your washing machine in return for their help with your laundry.

Home care

If you need extra support, a home care service can help. For a list of home care providers and the services they offer, see home care.
