We aim to assist vulnerable people, of all ages, to live independently within their own homes wherever possible.

A range of different services are available to support people in their own home. The services you receive will be based on our assessment of your needs. We will involve you and your family or carer in this assessment. 

Support may include :

 Care at home :

  • Assistance with personal care

  • Assistance with meal preparation

  • Assistance with shopping, and domestic tasks

  • Collecting prescriptions and pensions and paying bills

Community alarm:

  • Providing an alarm system so that you can get help in an emergency.

What services are always free?

  • Nursing and personal care for all ages

  • Home Care services for 42 days on discharge from hospital

Charges for care at Home

Practical tasks such as shopping, domestic tasks, and pension collection are subject to a charge.

How do we work out how much you pay for care at home services? 

One of our staff will visit you to assess your income and make sure you are receiving all the benefits you are entitled to. They will also work out the amount of any charges you are due to pay.

After the visit you will receive a letter telling you how much if anything you will need to pay.

You will only be charged for the services you receive. You will not be charged if you are on holiday, or in hospital and not receiving any services.

How is your income assessed ?


Further information on charging and the process involved, are available on our Assessing your needs page

You must tell us immediately if your income changes.

If you choose not to provide us with your financial details the maximum charge for services will be applied.

In cases of hardship in the first instance you should contact the Home Help Organiser dealing with your assessment.

There are a number of ways in which you can pay Care at Home charges. Further information is available on the Care at Home - Payments options page.

Day Care

Day services can help individuals stay active, meet with other people and give carers a break. People may only access these services for a short while, for example to regain confidence after a fall or spell in hospital.

Access to daycare services would be following an assessment by Community Adult Team or the Community Older People's Team.
