Care and support at home

Help with cleaning and other chores

If you're over 16, have a disability and need some care and support at home you may be able to get help with vital chores. We can assess your needs and provide a service if you meet the agreed criteria.

Your care worker can help with

  • cleaning your kitchen and bathroom
  • shopping
  • laundry.

You can make your own plans to buy cleaning, shopping and laundry services if we can't offer you help. Search for local housework and shopping services. The Council's services are registered with the Care Inspectorate. For services you arrange yourself, you can find out if they are registered on the Care Inspectorate website.

Most supermarkets will now deliver shopping to your home.
