The Adult Social Care section of the Westminster website is undergoing some changes and you can now find the information you are looking for on the on the new People First website. You can also find a wealth of related information about staying independent, services, products and what’s going on locally on the website.
Some examples of the home care services that a home carer can provide you if you are having difficulty being independent at home are:
- Preparing a meal
- helping you to dress
- help to get in and out of bed
- Home Meals
Home care services are usually provided by Housing 21 and Anchor Care on behalf of Westminster Council. They provide care between 7am and 9pm each day. We also work with other agencies to provide carers if necessary -including agencies that have carers who speak specific languages
There is also a specialist service for one off intensive cleaning in some circumstances, should this be agreed on assessment.
How do I get home care?
You will need to have an assessment of your needs. This assessment is free of charge.
Do I have to pay?
You will be assessed to pay for the home care service, and the amount you pay will be based on your income and savings after all relevant factors have been taken into account.
I would prefer to arrange my own care
If you are entitled to receive care, you may prefer to receive direct payments to pay for your own care rather than use the care provided by social services.
Alternatively, you can contact care agencies directly yourself.
