Adult Social Care

Care and support for older people in Hounslow

What does it do?

We can provide information on equipment and people (paid carers) to help you stay living at home and day services and activities to help you stay active.

We also have a range of information on taking medication, managing with incontinence, having meals delivered to you, preparing your own meals and keeping warm.

Of course, ensuring that your home is safe is top priority. There are numerous pieces of equipment and adaptations that can be made to your home. There is also a raft of modern technology (called Telecare) now available to you.

If you need help maintaining your home, we can help you find people to assist with your housework. Our Handy-man service might be able to put up a shelf for you or fix a broken chair.

Services provided can include:

•    healthcare
•    equipment
•    help in your home or in a care home
•    community support and activities
•    day centres
•    help for people with disabilities
•    financial support
•    information and advisory services, and advocacy
•    support for carers 

Who it is for?

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

Where it is available?

Local service (Hounslow).

What it costs:

A financial assessment will help us understand how much you may have to pay towards the help you need. Whilst advice and support with the assessment is free, most of the services the council provide will have to be paid for. How much you pay will depend on your income and savings. Most people will have to pay something towards the support they receive.

How to access or apply for it:

See contact details above.

What to expect then:

Our social care advisors in the access team will ask you a number of questions over the telephone to understand what help and support you might need. This will include establishing what you can do for yourself and what is causing you difficulties.
