Get help in your home

Find out more about getting home care services to help you stay in your own home.

Most of us want to live independent lives in our own homes for as long as possible. There are lots of home care services (also known as domiciliary care) available to help if you:

  • are recovering from an illness
  • are recovering from a fall
  • need help with your long-term care

These are usually provided by care workers or nurses. Home care can include everything from:

  • help with cleaning the house once a week
  • to visits several times a day to help with washing, dressing and other personal care tasks

Getting care in your home is a common alternative to staying in hospital or moving into a care home. By doing this you can:

  • avoid any upheaval
  • stay in familiar surroundings
  • chose a cheaper alternative to residential care
