Getting help from us

What sort of help could I get?

We can arrange help for you to get:

  • home care (where someone comes to the house to help you)
  • day care (care away from home during the day) in a day or resource centre
  • advocacy (where someone needs an independent person to help represent their interests to get the services they need where they may not have family or friends that could help)
  • regular visits by a nurse or social worker
  • direct payments (to allow you to buy in your own help)
  • support for carers (such as our sitting service)
  • the care navigation service – (this service supports people who are having difficulties to find ways to remain in control. It is aimed at people whose needs have been assessed and do not qualify for any money from us)
  • providing equipment or minor adaptations to the home
  • towards help in getting a job or finding an education course
  • a short break where you spend a brief time in a care home
  • help to move to more suitable accommodation, possibly with support available on site
  • longer term placement in a care home.

If you think any of the above services would be helpful please contact us
