Help to live independently

The Norfolk First Support service provides intensive support in your own home for up to six weeks. If, for example, you have been in hospital and need support when you return home, Norfolk First Support is there to help you regain as much independence as possible. After an initial assessment of your needs, the Norfolk First Support team will work with you to develop a personalised plan designed to help you regain the skills and confidence to remain independent in your home.

Norfolk First Support also provides support to help people learn new skills or relearn previous skills. 

Who can get help?

  • Older people
  • People with physical illness or disabilities
  • People with learning difficulties
  • Their carers

How much does it cost?

We will discuss with you how much Norfolk First Support care you need and if you are assessed as eligible for this reablement service then it is provided free for up to six weeks. Our aim is to help you remain independent in your own home avoiding costly, long-term support.
