Many of us want to live independently in our own home for as long as possible, but may be in a position where we need a little help. There are many options available depending on the type of help you need, from assistance with day to day living through to live-in nursing care. Organisations can help with equipment to support independence, from ramps and hoists to wheelchairs and beds. Many people have complex care needs and home care agencies can provide carers who specialise in supporting specific needs of the individual. Whether you are looking for care for adults with physical or learning disabilities, mental health issues, sensory impairment, addictions or substance misuse, it is vital to consider your care options and your current and future care needs carefully.
