Find information about care and support

People like to live independently in their own homes for as long as possible but if your situation changes, or as you get older, you may find it becomes harder to do every day things around your home or to get around.

There are steps that you can take and small changes that you can make that will allow you to stay safely in your own home and continue to be independent.

The information on this website will help you to find out what you can do next and to think about the future.

There is information on support to stay at home which includes equipmenthome repairs and organisations that can provide support in the home.

There are also a number of organisations offering information and advice to help you:

  • Remain as independent as possible and stay in your own home
  • Get the care and support you need
  • Get the information and advice you need to plan for your future care
  • Carry on caring and look after your own wellbeing if you look after someone - find out more about support for carers.

If you think you may need additional help, this is what happens next when you contact us.
