Adult Social Care

Care & support for older people in Dorset

What does it do?

At some point in our lives, many of us need help to look after ourselves. This might be because of illness, accident, disability or simply getting older and more frail. This is when our social care services can help.

We can provide services and advice on:

* Living at home
* Equipment
* Care homes

Who it is for?

This service is for older people, working age adults with a physical disability or learning disability
