Short term support
We offer free short term support for people who need help to regain their confidence and independence, or to get new day-to-day skills for living.
This extra support is from our PRIME (People Regaining Independence by Means of Enablement) Service. You may need it because you:
- would like to regain the confidence and skills to live an independent life
- need support to stay at home
- have been in hospital or residential care and are now returning home
- have a physical disability.
We hope you will need less support, or better still no support, to live an independent life after receiving our services. But as some people will need support on a long term basis, we will continue to keep an eye on your progress to check how you're coping.
If you continue to need help after your period of short-term support we will agree a care and support package with you that addresses your needs. This may mean there could be costs involved, but how much you pay will depend on the services you need. To find out if you are eligible for help with the costs, we will assist you to fill out a financial assessment form.
Contact Adult Social Care
There are many ways to contact the adult social care team, both online and over the phone.
We encourage people who can contact us online to do so, as it helps to free up phone lines for emergencies or for those who don't have access to or the skills to use computers.
