Living independently at home
Most people prefer to stay living independently at home. There are many ways you can be supported to help you stay independent at home, including services from charities, meal services, and handyperson services. If you're looking for home care services, the Care Quality Commission (CQC) and UK Home Care Association are good places to start. Or you can find home care agencies in the home care services area. If you feel you need an assessment of your care and support needs, contact our access team.
