Support for Living at Home

Personal Carer


You apply to your Public Health Nurse for a Personal Carer. You can have a Home Support Worker (used to be called Home Help) and a Carer. The Public Health Nurse will call to you and do an assessment on your need for a Personal Carer.

There is no means test on the person applying. There is a waiting list and hours are allocated depending on the resources available at the time of application. The only assessment that is done on the person is a clinical assessment.

Contact Citizens Information or your local Health Centre for more information.
