Someone to help you

Public notice

We are currently consulting on the Local Plan Publication draft - from Wednesday 21 February, to midnight on Wednesday 4 April 2018.

Take part in the consultation

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.

Personal budgets

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.

Choosing a care provider

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.
