  • cooking, cleaning and ironing
  • looking after children and pets
  • shopping, socialising, going on holiday or studying
  • driving, gardening or helping with paperwork or the computer
  • personal care, like washing and dressing, or mobility
  • assisting with healthcare tasks (after training)
  • liaising with other professionals and family members who are involved in supporting the client
