Adult Social Care

Care and support for older people in the Isle of Wight

What does it do?

The Adult Social Care Service aims to promote people’s wellbeing and independence by supporting them to:

  • Live independently
  • Stay healthy and recover quickly from illness
  • Exercise maximum control over their own life and where appropriate, the lives of their family members
  • Participate as active and equal citizens both economically and socially
  • Have the best possible quality of life, irrespective of illness or disability
  • Retain maximum dignity and respect
  • Be safe from harm

Who it is for?

We want to make sure that people have fair access to social care and support that they may need.  If you are finding it difficult to manage by yourself and you are over the age of 18, we may be able to support you and/or provide you with information and advice so that you can find your own solutions.
