Crisis support at home

Some people urgently need support at home, though they would not benefit as much from a programme of rehabilitation or re-ablement like the Short Term Support Service. If you are in this position, we can arrange crisis support home care. If you only need support for a brief period, this may be all that you require; if you need longer-term support, this service can fill the gap while you choose how you want to be supported later on.

If we think you may need crisis support, we will arrange for a care manager to see you. They will discuss with you how much support you need. If you are likely to need support for more than a few weeks, they will also start assessing your long-term needs and helping you to make choices about how to meet them.

There is a charge for crisis support home care, though we will only ask you to pay as much of this charge as we think you can afford to pay.
