  • Accompanying you on visits. For example, to local clubs for social events; to meet up with family and friends; to a local garden centre; to the theatre, opera or cinema; to a restaurant; to local places of interest, such as Clandon Park, Polesden Lacey, and RHS Wisley

  • Taking (and accompanying you, if required) to medical appointments

  • Running errands (with or without you), such as taking items to the dry cleaners; taking your pet to the vets; collecting prescriptions

  • Accompanying you on a walk (with or without your dog and/or mine)

Or helping you with:

  • Light household chores, such as taking the bins and recycling in and out; changing light bulbs and fuses; organising storage; fetching and replacing items in the loft or shed; removing and hanging curtains; decluttering and taking rubbish to the dump and/or helping you sell unwanted items (using local auction houses, eBay, local Facebook selling pages etc.) or dispose of them to local charities or via social media sites, such as Streetlife and Freecycle
