Community Bathing Service
What our service offers
Our community bathing service provides a safe and private
space for people to have assistance with taking a bath. The service
is available for older people and vulnerable people who find it
difficult to wash themselves at home.
Relaxing bathing experience
Our service users can enjoy a relaxing bath with the assistance
of our trained volunteers who ensure dignity and modesty at all
times. They can also tailor the service to a service user’s
Service users usually spend between 30-45 minutes in the bath.
They can also have their nails cut and their hair styled. Our
volunteers can also support them with some light exercise.
All of our bathing units are equipped with bath hoists to assist
and support service users in and out of the bathing suite.
After their bath, service users have the opportunity to
socialise with others over a cup of coffee and a biscuit.
There are also local social activities for service users to get
involved in. For example, sight-seeing trips.
