At times some people may find it hard to manage personal activities such as showering, dressing and getting to the toilet. You might require personal care because of a minor setback, a stay in hospital, or because of long-term difficulties.

Council’s personal care service can assist you to maintain your health, hygiene and grooming and support you to build your confidence to manage what you can for yourself. Services are tailored to respond to the diverse needs of our older residents. 

A Care Plan is developed with you according to your preferences and needs, and these choices will guide our highly trained staff in how to work alongside you. 

Fees apply for this service and are based on your income.
