If you, a family member, or your doctor believes you need long-term care, your first step should be to contact your local authority (or Health and Social Care Trust in Northern Ireland) for a care assessment. Local authorities are required by law to assess your care needs and help put together a personalised care plan.

Find your local authority or council

Each local authority offers different services, but they may include:

  • A place in a care home
  • Homecare services
  • Meals on wheels
  • Short break services (respite)
  • Day care
  • Care in a care home

Getting these services will depend on whether the person you care for meets the local authority’s eligibility criteria, which are used to decide if people are entitled to receive any services.
