Care at home (NHS Choices)

Care at home

If staying at home is an option for you and you need help with your personal care and some practical household tasks, home care may be a solution for you. For further information, visit the home care page. 

Home care can help you continue to live independently and safely in your own home. You may need help because you have a disability, are frail and elderly, have been in hospital or had a fall, or simply need to regain your confidence.

There are many types of support available, including help with personal care, such as washing, dressing, getting out of the shower or getting in and out of bed. You can also receive help with other daily tasks, including cooking meals, cleaning, shopping and taking medication.
