There is a wide range of support available to help you live at home and avoid going into residential care. See our support to live at home page for more information. Extra care housing can be a good alternative to going into a care home. Contact us and tell us about the support you need. A social care worker will talk to you about what is available.
Telephone: 0300 500 80 80 Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
If home-based support is not suitable to meet your needs we may consider funding a placement in residential or nursing care.
If you are considering funding your own placement in residential or nursing care please contact us first as we will offer advice and information to help you. If you do not contact us and run out of money to fund your placement we may not be able to offer you any financial help.
If you are assessed as eligible to have your needs met in a residential or nursing care we can organise this for you or you can have a direct payment [PDF].
