We have our own Home Care service, but we can commission services from independent care at home providers. Home Carers work in partnership with family, friends and other agencies to support you at home.
We will assess your care needs and how we can support you. You may be asked to contribute towards the cost of the services you receive. Many people will pay nothing, or will only contribute towards part of the cost. Once the services are in place they are regularly reviewed.
Contact us if you think you, a relative or friend needs help to manage at home.
