Services for Adults offer care and support for adults, including older people, who need help to stay healthy and live as independently as possible. We help adults retain or regain independence, enable choice and control over longer term needs, and safeguard and protect vulnerable people from harm.
The information on this page directs you to various places that can help or support you or someone you care for. If you feel that you need more support than what is detailed below, you can request a care assessment. Our Request a Care Assessment page provides more detail about the assessment process.
