Domiciliary Care (care in your own home)


Following an assessment by your local Adult Care Services Department, if they assess you as needing care in your own home, a Care Plan will be drawn up. Again the Local Authority will carry out a Financial Assessment to see if you can afford to pay for, or contribute towards, the care that will be provided.  You do have the option to decline this Financial Assessment but this will probably mean that you will end up paying for your care in full.

Not all services provided are chargeable.  Services such as those of an Occupational Therapists or attendance at available Day Centres are often free of charge (although transport to and from day centres would normally be charged).
