Care

Who can provide care to me in my own home?

Care in your own home may involve personal and domestic care tasks such as light housework, doing the shopping, laundry, washing, helping you get up, bathing, dressing yourself and help administering medication. Care can be delivered over a short period (e.g. if your Carer is away) or as part of an on-going care package.

You can view further information, reports/ratings and contact details about care providers closest to you by entering your postcode into the CQC (Care Quality Commission) website or ringing their information helpline on 0300 061 6161.
