Day to day living

If you or someone you care for need help to stay at home we can provide help with every day essential tasks including getting in and out of bed, bathing, dressing, feeding and additional support to help live at home as independently as possible.

  • The domiciliary home care service operates between 7am and 11pm and supports people who are assessed as needing help with a range of care needs.
  • The physical disabilities team helps adults aged 18 to 65 who have physical disabilities or neurological conditions that restrict mobility and/or a person's ability to care for themselves. They can help access educational, housing and employment opportunities, and also arrange fun and social activities to get involved in.
  • The housing and family support service can provide support to adults with a learning disability to live independently and safely in their own home. The service can also provide short breaks to carers and the individual, for further information on this visit the Short breaks page.

An assessment of your needs for adult social care will be carried out to see if you qualify for the above services which will include details of cost.
