CROSSROADS Care Dudley is offering free support for frail elderly couples who need a helping hand.

Following a successful bid to the Wolves Charitable Trust, the charity, based in Kingswinford, is now able to offer the service of a personal worker.

The worker will visit once a week to assist with everyday living tasks that may have become difficult.

This could include shopping, cooking healthy meals, getting out and about or accessing health appointments.

Help is available to couples who do not receive support from other outside agencies.

Anyone who would like more information about the service should call 01384 298513.
