Fife Older Persons’ Service - Help To Stay At Home

Help To Stay At Home supports older people in Fife to reconnect with their community and live full and active lives.  It provides the necessary support for people to remain in their own homes and communities.

What do we do

Help to Stay at Home is a befriending service provided by experienced assistant project workers.  The service supports people over 65 to access services in the local community.  The service aims to support those who are house bound or have long-term health conditions to become more active and to re-engage with their local communities.  The service can also offer support to carers by providing respite allowing them to continue in their role as long as possible.

Thank you so much for everything you do for Dad. This is a great help to me as I live so far away and can’t visit as often as I’d like.

Thank you to our funders

This service is funded by the Fife Health and Social Care Fund.  This service also benefitted from Connecting Scotland, a Scottish Government initiative managed by SCVO, set up in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.  This support enabled many digitally excluded people to get online and take part in digital social cafes.
