Home CareDecision Making

How do I get assessed for a home care package?

The most important thing about your home care package is that it is tailored to truly meet your individual needs. To ensure that this is the case, your chosen home care provider will run through a care assessment with you and your loved ones, to get to know you and understand the type, frequency and level of home care services which you require.

Your care assessment will look at everything you need in order to stay happy, healthy and safe in your own home. It will consider all aspects of your care and support, to enable you to remain as independent as possible and keep doing the things that you love.

Whether you are seeking home care services for the elderly, for a family member or for yourself, the process is exactly the same. The home care services provider will visit you at home to discuss your requirements and preferences for home care, including:

  • Support with mobility, medication, mealtimes or personal care.
  • Help around the house, or with domestic chores such as cleaning and grocery shopping.
  • Assistance to get out and about, including for medical appointments or to retain your hobbies and interests.
  • Help to get back on your feet after illness or injury.
  • Companionship for you, and peace of mind for your loved ones.

Following your home care assessment, the provider will agree a bespoke package of home care services tailored just for you, to enable you to live the life you choose at home.
