Jigsaw Independence Service

The Independence service enables local   people to live independently at home.  We understand that the level of support and care you need is unique to you and sometimes, a helping hand with the  demands of your daily routine is all it takes to greatly improve your quality of life.

We also realise that receiving any kind of support in the home can be a very daunting prospect, even if it’s for a relative or friend rather than yourself. That’s why the Independence service works in a way that is  sensitive and respectful. We do everything we can to help our Service Users feel at ease and relaxed.
