Community Care and Support
Community Care and Support Services are also known as home care or domiciliary care. They are services that help you with everyday activities so that you can keep your independence for as long as possible. The types of support that they offer include:
- Helping you to getting out of bed, or get ready for bed
- Personal care, such as washing or dressing
- Getting out and about in your community
- Cooking or preparing meals
- Taking medication
If you want to arrange your own community care and support services, you can use the People's Information Network
to search for organisations in your area.
We have also produced a Preferred Provider List
of organisations that have a contract with the Council to provide Community Care and Support Services. The organisations on this list are regularly checked by the Council to make sure that they are safe, reliable and good value for money.
Our Accredited Provider list is a list of services that do not have a contract with the Council, but have agreed to be checked regularly to make sure they are meeting the Councils quality standards for care and support services.
