The need for care can arise for different reasons. You may find yourself requiring temporary care in order to help you get over an illness, operation or accident. Or, it may be that you require permanent care as a result of a disability, illness, or frailty in old age.
Whatever the reason, it is important to obtain a professional assessment of your needs.
If appropriate, we will contact your local social services department on your behalf. They have a duty to assess the care needs of anyone that has been identified as needing community care services. There is no charge for an assessment from the council. Furthermore, it will allow you to determine if they can provide any of the services you require.
Instead of asking for a contribution towards the cost of care services, the council may offer Direct Payments.
Direct Payments are an amount of money the council have assessed you need to enable you to buy in the services you require yourself.
Paying for Care Privately
If you do not qualify for local council support, it may be necessary to purchase the care you need privately through a company such as ourselves.
Companies providing care should be registered with the Quality Care Commission, also known as CQC. They carry out inspections to ensure the care being delivered is up to standard.
The cost of employing a home care agency will depend on the type and amount of care you need.
