Support at home

If you need help with everyday activities like getting washed and dressed, and don’t have enough support from friends or relatives, then there's lots of options available to help you to stay in your own home.

This support could be arranged privately or provided through the council if you qualify for support from us.

Options available to help you to stay as independent as possible include:

  • equipment or adaptations to support you in getting around in your home
  • having someone come to your home to help you with daily tasks through a home care service
  • handyperson's scheme which provides practical help to older and disabled people who have difficulties with carrying out small jobs around the house
  • AskSARA - online guided advice about daily living for older and disabled people
