This section is for anyone who wants to go on living in their own home but, because of old age and/or disabilities, may need help, information or specialist advice to do so.
Finding the right care can be difficult and time-consuming. You may need help from a variety of sources. Our aim here is to bring together details of the key organisations, such as the National Health Service (NHS), voluntary organisations and independent providers, as well as Adult Services, that might be able to help you or the person you care for.
We have also included general information for anyone wanting to get the most out of life, despite difficulties that may arise because of age or disability. You will therefore find advice regarding transport, social activities, training and volunteering, as well as useful tips for looking after yourself and your home.
