Care and support is the help some people need to live as well as possible with any illness, disability or impairment.
Carers can come to your home for 24 hour care, or just a few hours, on a short or long-term basis.
They can help with personal care. This includes getting washed and dressed, and helping with meals.
This type of care is often provided by home care agencies.
You may be eligible for help towards the cost of home care depending on your income and savings.
