Arranging Home Care

How do I arrange home care?


There are three ways to access the care you need.


1. Local Authority Funded or Part Funded Care

Suppose you’re having difficulties with tasks such as washing, cooking and dressing, and think you may be entitled to help with funding your Home Care. In this case, you, or with your permission, your family, the district nurse or GP, can ask your Local Authority for a Care Assessment. If you want Premier Community to provide your support, you can request this of social services. 

 

2. Local Authority Funded or Part Funded Care from a hospital Admission

If you’re being discharged from the hospital and think you need help at home, the staff on the ward will arrange services to make sure you are appropriately supported. It’s good to give them as much notice as possible to put this in place.

If you want Premier Community to provide your support, you can request this of social services. 


3. Privately Funded Care

To arrange private home care, call a Registered Care Provider, such as Premier Community, and arrange a care assessment to provide the help you need.
