Help at Home

Help with everyday needs

If you think you need help with your everyday needs to help you to live independently, get in touch with the First Contact Team for an assessment:

The team will complete a referral form on your behalf and then the Community Care Assessment Team will visit you to assess your needs and recommend the best solution.

A home carer can assist with a wide variety of daily living tasks, including personal care and household tasks such as:

  • dressing
  • washing
  • getting to the toilet
  • preparing meals
  • supervising medications
  • doing laundry
  • shopping


There are a number of organisations that deliver meals to those who have difficulty shopping, getting food home or cooking for themselves:
