Help At Home is a local charity offering a little extra help to those in temporary need. We are caring members of the local community around the Mar Menor in Spain. Perhaps someone is in hospital, or just out of hospital and they or their partner need help in and around the house, with shopping or visiting. We also loan out mobility equipment, such as wheelchairs and walkers, as well as commodes. We do not charge for this help and rely solely on donations and fund raising. However, due to the high demand for the free of charge use of our mobility equipment, it has become necessary to restrict the loan period to a maximum of 6 months. It may be possible to increase this time limit in exceptional circumstances. We are not a full-time or long-term care service, but we will try to help in all cases where we can. For those who need a little Help in a time of need.
We have helped and are currently helping a tremendous amount of people in the Mar Menor area who are struggling to cope at home following illness. We would dearly love to be able to help more. To achieve this, we need more volunteers to join our team. Can you help us to help them, perhaps just a few hours when it is convenient for you?
Our Help Line is open 9.30am-6.00pm Monday to Friday only (not weekends).
