Assessing your care needs

If you, or someone you care for, believe that Social Care support is required, a referral may be made and we will undertake an initial assessment.  This informs us of the ways in which you want to live your life and any support you need to achieve that.

Our services include:

Care at home

We can work with you to establish your needs to remain safe and independent within your own home.

Telecare

Telecare provides 24/7 monitoring, support and a means of summoning help and assistance if required.

For homeowners, or if you live in privately rented accommodation, are over 60 years of age and require house repairs or minor adaptations, the home repair assistance grant may assist you.

Advocacy

Advocacy can provide a range of information and support, to provide an advocate to speak for people when they are unable to speak for themselves.

Wheelchair, scooter and ramp information

If you have a disability, you may wish to have, or be in possession of a wheelchair or scooter.  Find out about how to request a personal mobility vehicle, how to request an adaptation to your home property or advice about how to request servicing of your personal mobility vehicle.
