If it becomes difficult to stay living independently at home because of ill health or other conditions, it may be worth considering a care home.
Alternatively, care agencies can supply home carers to help with household chores, cleaning and a number of other tasks. They can also help with personal care, such as help with dressing or bathing. Personal home care agencies are run by a variety of organisations, including private firms, charities, voluntary sector organisations and local councils.
