Services for older people

What does it do?

Tower Hamlets provides a wide range of care, support and assistance to adults in need of these services and live in the borough.

The services we provide range from giving advice and information through to long-term residential care for the elderly, people with physical or learning disabilities or mental health problems.

Adult Carers

The council provides advice and support for adult carers who care for the elderly, children with special needs and adults with physical or learning disabilities. 

Home Care Assessment

The home assessment scheme is designed to carry out an assessment to determine individual residents who may need help with daily living tasks. When deciding who receives help we use the ‘Fair Access to Care Services’ rules. All councils must use these rules so that everyone, no matter where they live, is treated in the same way.
