Care at home is support provided in the home by careworkers to assist someone with their daily life. It is usually the choice for people who need help with their personal care but wish to continue to lead independent lives with family and friends and be in a familiar environment rather than moving into a care home.
You may only require a small amount of support - from half an hour a week, to several hours a day, or even live-in care. The service may be on a temporary, intermittent or long term basis.
