Clackmannanshire Council Assessment and Care Management Service can arrange and provide, in some circumstances, a home care service (carers) to help people to maintain their independence in their own familiar surroundings at home.
A home carer can assist with a wide variety of daily living tasks, including personal care and tasks such as dressing, washing, getting to the toilet, preparing meals and supervising medication.
People in the following community care groups may receive home care services:
Home Care services are requested and provided through an assessment by the Assessment and Care Management teams. Depending on a person's financial circumstances there may be a charge for the service, although help with personal care is generally provided free of charge to older people, i.e. those 65 and over.
Assessment and Care Management will identify the most appropriate service for your needs and this may include access to our reablement service who will work with you to improve your daily living skills.
Some people may also be eligible for Self Directed Support (direct payments) to purchase their own service, the Assessment and Care Management teams can provide information about this.
Please contact your local Social Services Assessment and Care Management Team to request an assessment for yourself or another individual for this service.
