Care and Support Options

Care and Support Planning

At some point in our lives most of us will need help with everyday living, perhaps because of an illness, a stay in hospital, a disability, or just because we are getting older. Our support services are designed to help adults keep independent, safe and well.

We can provide care and support services if you are an adult, living within the borough, and: 

  • have difficulties to do with illness or old age 
  • have a sight, hearing or physical impairment 
  • have mental health difficulties 
  • have a learning disability 
  • have drug or alcohol problems 
  • have serious and long term health problems including HIV and AIDS 
  • need to stay safe and free from harm 
  • are a carer supporting someone to keep independent, safe and well 
We’ll need to meet with you first to talk about your care and support needs and work out the best way to help you. This is called an assessment.
