Someone to help you

Planned maintenance

We're making essential system updates on Wednesday 13 December between 7:30pm and 8:00pm - during this time some online services may be unavailable. We apologise for any inconvenience.

If you're having difficulty with day to day tasks at home, you may need some extra support. The type of things you may need help with include:

  • washing
  • getting dressed
  • moving around your home
  • using the bathroom
  • cooking
  • getting in and out of bed

We may be able to offer you short-term assistance to help you stay independent at home; we call this 'reablement'. Find out who can get adult social care and how we can make an assessment of your needs.

If you need longer-term help or someone to visit you in your home on a regular basis, you may qualify for a Personal Budget so you can choose and pay for the support you need.

Always make sure the provider you choose is registered and inspected by the Care Quality Commission. Connect to Support York has more information on local services, providers and groups in the area, or you can download a list of home care providers.
