If your needs are changing and you need more help and support in your daily life, there is a range of services who can help you keep your independence.

Home care agencies
Home Care agencies provide staff who come to your home to help with tasks like getting out of bed, dressing, personal hygiene, cooking, cleaning, taking medication, or accompanying you when you go out.
