Home care services aim to provide support and care within your home in order to allow you to live independently for as long as possible. These services provide support with personal care, such as washing, dressing and going to bed. They also assist people with practical domestic tasks such as laundry and food preparation. Through the use of Home Care services, people can remain living in their home environment while receiving care which meets their specific needs. These services help to build confidence and maintain independence.
Enhanced Home Care services are also available and these services are specifically designed to provide care for people with more specific needs. Enhanced Home Care provides assistance with personal care, such as treatment of specific skin conditions and specialised feeding.
Home Care services are available to people of all ages who feel that they require support within their home environment. A list of Home Care service providers can be found below.
In addition to Home Care services, there are other support networks which can assist people who live at home. Information about Carers, Adaptations, Day Care, Reablement and Telecare is available and these aids can help to support people who live at home.
