Your Care and Support
To help you continue living independently, the care and support service is tailored to your individual requirements, on a planned basis according to your assessed needs.
In an emergency, staff are available to respond during office hours and help can also be summoned via the alarm service 24/7. If necessary, arrangements can be made for additional help such as an ambulance or an emergency GP.
The team can also provide advice and support with everyday matters, such as paying a bill, arranging a GP or dental appointment, dealing with correspondence and to help you take part in social and recreational activities.
