If you are in need of a little extra assistance you may be eligible for support to live in your own home, or social care support through a residential or nursing home.
To apply for care assistance in your home, residential or nursing care home you will need to have completed a social care assessment of need via the Social Care Access Team.
If a move into a residential care home is required we will arrange for a financial assessment to take place. This will establish if we can help with the care home fees. For more information visit choosing and paying for care.
If you have experienced poor care, or poor care is being provided to someone you know, you can report it anonymously to Care Quality Commission. The information you provide helps identify if a service is no longer providing care that meets minimum standards and action must be taken.
You can also find inspection reports on the Care Quality Commission's website if you are looking for a home.
To report poor care or see previous inspection reports of a home, visit the Care Quality Commission website.
