You can receive various forms of support including help with shopping and budgeting, care services such as help with dressing, washing, administrating medications and meals on wheels to your home.

You can receive support from:

  • Social Services
  • NHS

Adaptions

You can have your home adapted to make it more suitable for your needs. Adaptions can help prevent any accidents/injuries and help with movement around the house so you can live more independently.

Disabled Facilities Grant

Home improvement agencies

  • These are non-profit organisations who offer improvement/adaptions to elderly, disabled or those on lower incomes.
