A Helping Hand
Keeping up with the demands of a home can be a challenge. That’s where Presto can help. 

Often living independently and well at home depends on the little things: companionship, shopping and eating well, maintaining a safe home and having great transport solutions so you can get out and about. Whether it’s providing companionship, transport and support to get out and about or help with keeping on top of household chores, that’s where Presto can help.

We can even supply delicious meals with our catering service. Presto runs a 7 day hot meals delivery scheme, with a cold tea option available. This can be booked for as many or as few days as you require.

We all need some company. Presto understands that companionship not only helps with day-to-day activities but improves the overall quality of life and well-being as well. That’s why we offer a tailored companionship service, with trained and experienced staff.

They can help to prepare meals, do small domestic jobs, assist with the shopping, accompany you on visits or appointments and just spend quality time with you in the comfort of your own home.
