Most people don’t want to think about giving up their independence, going into a care home and having to rely on other people. The majority of people want to remain in their own home. Some people are quite capable of making their own plans to obtain care at home, some people rely on family members to help them to arrange care and for others the process may be prompted by a medical condition or following a stay in hospital. We can help you to retain your independence and remain at home for as long as possible. We can act as Professional Attorney and we provide a Home Administration service.
There is a wide range of support available for example:
- Home Carers
- Personal Care
- Meals on Wheels
- Day Centres
- Provision of special equipment
- Home Adaption eg. grab rails, stair lifts etc
The Local Authority will carry out an assessment of your needs and they will put together a care plan. There may be a number of professionals involved in the process of arranging care for you or a family member such as a social worker, nurse or occupational therapist. We can help you to obtain the help and support at home that you require. We can help to simplify the process by navigating the maze and speaking to the various organisations and officials on your behalf.
We can advise on funding care at home. Find out more about Funding Residential and Home Care.
