Home care agencies

Home care can be arranged by the Council, if you are eligible, or you can contact the agencies to buy your own care and support at home.  You may be asked to pay a contribution to your home care based on your care and support assessment. The full list is managed and maintained on InformationNOW.  The website includes the CQC rating to help you decide whether to use those services.  To arrange your own care, contact the Registered Manager of the home care agency.
