Home CareDecision Making

How do you qualify for home care services?

Home care services are available for anyone who needs support to remain independent in their own home – whether that’s with help around the home, personal care and medication, support to get out and about, or help to get back on their feet following a hospital stay.

Anyone can qualify for a package of home care, but the matter of who pays for home care services will depend upon individual circumstances.

There is a common misconception that home care services are purely for the elderly. Whilst it is true that we may all need a little extra support as we get older, it is not just the older generation who can – and do – benefit from home care.

Our specialist home care teams across Somerset, Devon, Wiltshire and B&NES provide bespoke support to a wide range of people and families of all ages who need a helping hand, including those who are:

  • Recovering from illness or injury, and need a short-term package of care to get back on their feet.
  • Living with a complex or long-term medical condition, and need help to manage their symptoms.
  • Seeking to rebuild their confidence to get out and about, and need support to attend appointments and social events.
  • Looking for a little extra help to retain their hobbies and meet up with friends, and need support to keep doing the things they love.
  • Struggling with household chores like cleaning, shopping and cooking, and need an extra hand around the home.
  • Keen to retain their independence and have their own front door, but need help to get washed, dressed and manage their medication.
  • Feeling isolated, and need the reassurance of a friendly face and regular company.
  • Seeking peace of mind for themselves and their loved ones, and need to know that help is always at hand.

As every package of home care is bespoke to individual requirements, home care services can be adapted to almost anything you need to enable you to thrive and live a fulfilling life in your own home.

Please don’t be afraid to reach out for the help that you need, in order to live the life you choose.
