Home care agencies charge for the care they provide.
If home care was identified in your Support Plan during your assessment of care needs, your personal budget can be used to pay for the services you require.
If home care services are commissioned on your behalf by the council, you will have to pay a contribution to these costs. Please see our information on paying for care services for more information.
Following the assessment process, we can help organise your home care services. You should speak to your care worker for more information.
