A Helping Hand

Even if people living independently are usually quite happy and able to look after themselves, there may be times, through having a busy schedule, guests, or a period of illness, when they could do with a helping hand.

Help is available in various ways.

The Lavender Girls

This is a bespoke Middleton Hall service, available as and when you require it, to provide help with:

  • Cleaning (such as that all-too-soon-due oven clean)
  • Shopping
  • Meal planning/snack preparation
  • Changing and making the bed
  • Laundry and ironing service
  • Tidying up
  • Companionship (non-care)
  • Sewing of small items

Please contact Elaine, Housekeeping Supervisor, via reception on 01325 332207.


The Gardening team is happy to help you enjoy your outdoor space. They can clean and plant up your pots and store them over the winter season if you wish. Moving garden furniture? This is the team for you. Contact one of the team via reception for details and costs.


Likewise, if you have a household job in mind but for whatever reason, prefer to enlist help, get in touch with a member of the Maintenance team for details and costs. They will help put up shelving, change light fittings, paint and decorate … All with a smile.

If you are not feeling well and would benefit from having a meal from the cold selection of dishes delivered, give The Orangery a ring on 01325 331444 and they will arrange this for you.

Prescription Delivery

Repeat prescriptions and those prescribed during a home visit from Felix House Surgery are delivered by the cheerful Maurice to your door (The Waterside) and to Reception for you to collect (Middleton Woods).
