Welcome to Ask A Sister
We are a small, local family business. Two sisters that provide friendship, help and support, to assist and enable older people to be confident and fully enjoy independent living in their own homes.
We work throughout Teignbridge and Torbay, and some of the parts of South Hams that are closer to where we live in Stokeinteignhead and St Marychurch.
Ask A Sister can help you by being a companion to rely on, with practical support and assisting with all those everyday tasks that for some now seem just that little bit more difficult! This could be once a week, or once in a while, the choice is yours.
Here is a short list of some of the things we do for others.

- Organise wardrobes
- Clothing alterations and dressmaking
- Make beds, change linen
- Provide information on other essential services

Getting Out & About
In todays hustle and bustle, one of the greatest challenges to you living an independent life is driving and mobility. It can be daunting for many older people to venture out. Our companion driving and shopping services can help you overcome stress and worry of getting out and about. Picking you up from your home, helping you in busy supermarkets with your shopping, and getting you safely home and making sure all is well.
With Spring soon knocking on our door, what better a treat to look forward to than a short trip to the beach or somewhere like Cockington, where you can also enjoy tea and cakes in the garden. Or taking you to see other friends and relatives that may live locally. We will be there to help you and make days full and enjoyable.
Using our services could not be easier and we can be there for you as and when needed, choose the days and times to suit you best.
Ask A Sister does this weekly for a number of clients, providing accompanied transport and a wheelchair if required. Some of the favourite places we regularly visit include, Teignmouth, Dawlish, Fermoy's Garden Centre, Shaldon Zoo, Stoke Gabriel, and the Willows Shopping Centre. Your day, your choices, we're there just to help you.
