Someone To Help You

What does it do?

If you are having problems bathing, washing or dressing yourself, even with help from equipment, you may need help from a care worker.
Once your practical needs have been assessed by one of our social workers we can put together a care package that will give you practical help. This could include a care worker to call daily to help you get washed and dressed in the morning and a further call in the evening to help you get ready for bed.

Who it is for?

The service is for people over the age of 18, who live in Trafford and who need practical help due to sight or hearing loss, physical or learning disabilities, frailty or illness. Help is also available to people recovering from a hospital stay and needing temporary help to maintain their independence and quality of life. However, in order to work out just how much help is needed to make life easier for you, we do need to carry out an assessment.

Where it is available?
