It's where the heart is.

Living at home made simpler

 076 986 1382

Client Defined Support  •  Fully Insured  •  Mobile Service  •  Fully Supervised 

For the elderly, staying on at home in familiar surroundings for as long as possible is the ideal, but everyday tasks eventually become difficult and reduce the enjoyment of living independently. 

For anyone recuperating at home after surgery or an injury even small tasks and simply getting around can be challenging.

There are many situations where people experience difficulty living at home, and in many instances help for even a short period of time may make all the difference.

HomeAid can help.

Our services are tailored to provide part time non-medical support for seniors and anyone living at home and needing assistance. From the outset our approach has been to deliver a better client experience by making available enhanced services made possible by our mobile fleet. 

Our carefully selected and fully insured staff help with a wide range of tasks, providing effective support at an affordable price. Our service effectively bridges the divide between living unassisted and having the support of a carer or home nurse.

Help is always at hand, whether it's to get things done around the house, groceries fetched or a visit to the dentist. 

We provide support to anyone living in the greater Port Elizabeth area.   

We are mindful of personal safety in today's South Africa and vigilance is of paramount importance while a client is in our care.

Thank you for checking up on my mom...she speaks so highly of you. We would like once again to thank you for your assistance.         JC,   East London
