Support at Home Service

What does it do?

The Support at Home service is a new service provided by Adult Care services. The aim of the service is to support older people to continue living independently in their own home. The service is essentially a preventative service which can help reduce isolation through regular visits and contact with service users.
The service provides a regular visit and / or telephone calls to check on your well being and ensure that you receive the necessary support  to remain in your own home for as long as possible. 

Who it is for?

Support at Home is available for residents of Bury who are over 60 and need a little support so that they can continue to live in their own homes. It is also available for people under 60 who have  a disability or high support need.

Where it is available?

Local service (Bury).

What it costs:

The service is free for people who receive housing benefit. If you receive other forms of benefit the service may also be free or at a reduced cost. However this is dependent on you undertaking a fairer charging assessment.
