If you want to remain living independently at home, but are finding this increasingly difficult, there are options available to you.
We can look at the practical options for adapting your home. This may include simple things such as installing handrails around your home to make you feel safer and to allow you to access all areas of your home, both inside and out. There may be things such as door widening that can be done to accommodate mobility equipment if this is needed.
If it is becoming harder for you to use your bathroom or kitchen safely, there may be adaptations that can be made to allow you to access these areas more easily and safely. All of these things cost money, however depending on your financial circumstances, there maybe financial support available to you through your local authority. This is something I can help you with.
If you are finding it difficult to do your own shopping, cleaning, cooking or gardening then I can help you to identify alternative options that are available in your area and help arrange them for you. This may include food delivery services, charities or local groups that may be able to help you and help with the arrangements.
If you’re finding it harder to get to appointments, we can look at the options available to you. If mobility is a problem, we can look at services that are available to you in your own home (e.g. hairdressers, dentist) or local charities/volunteer groups that can offer a taxi service to take you to appointments if that’s appropriate. I can also help organise these for you.
