Community care charges
Community care includes many of the social care services that you may require to live independently and safely in your own home.
These services include:
- Care alarm services
- Frozen Meals
- Personal Care
- Outreach Support
- Supported Living Services
- Sitting Services
- Extra Care Housing
- Domestic Help
- Day Care (unless provided as part of a package of residential care)
- Other Support from Adults, Health and Social Care (eg. transport, equipment)
- Respite paid as a Direct Payment
Depending on your eligibility, the Council may be able to arrange and charge you for these services.
