Personalised Care in Your Own Home
Most of us, given the choice, would prefer to remain in the security and familiarity of our own home as we age – but practical difficulties can often get in the way.
Assistance at Home aims to provide an appealing alternative to residential care, enabling you or your loved ones to maintain independence and enjoy life to the full.
Assistance at Home was set up by Elena Ayliffe, a senior nurse with considerable experience of providing live-in care for the elderly. Her professional background provides her with a deep and sympathetic understanding of the needs of older people, including those living with long-term illness.

Care for couples
Assistance at Home is the perfect solution for those who are finding day to day life at home too much to cope with, yet do not want the disruption of moving into residential care.
In their own home they remain part of their local community and keep their General Practitioner. Surrounded by family, friends and neighbours they are still able to enjoy membership of local clubs and religious affiliations, secure in knowing that every assistance they might need, from shopping, cooking and housekeeping to personal care, is in professional hands.
Assistance at Home carers support our clients maintaining independence, enabling choice in everyday life whether choosing what to wear or eat, arranging visits from friends and family or planning a day out.
The certified carer provides care tailored to the individual, including medication compliance, but also companionship whilst ensuring safety and reassurance in the familiar surroundings of the clients’ own home.
What our clients say

Roger, Wimbledon Park
The Carers are so totally dedicated, it was the hardest thing to hand over his day and night care, I felt guilty that I could no longer provide him this level of support but once they came to our assistance it took only a short time for me to feel totally at ease and now with over a years experience with them they care for my Father in exactly the way I would and not only in Care terms but also in sharing his interests of Gardening, Football and his sense of humour.
I would have no hesitation in recommending them, they have made a wonderful difference to my whole Family and leave us to enjoy the ‘Fun Times’ which are now not clouded by the day & night rigors which has given my Father his self esteem and pride back. Thank You!”

Elena is brilliant, she was always checking in with us to ensure everything was ok! I wouldn’t hesitate to highly recommend her services. Without their care life would have been so different for our family and we would not have been able to spend the quality time that we needed and wanted with our Father. We are still in contact with the carers and we exchange seasonal wishes every year.”
