Keeping the home clean and tidy is important, however the Council's  priority is to help people with managing their personal care, and ensuring they are well and safe. This means that they may not always be able to provide help for things like cleaning, shopping and home maintance. If you or your cared for need help with general housework there are a large number of local private homecare agencies who can provide this service.

If you feel that your cared for can manage with things like bathing and getting around your house, but need help with things like housework and food shopping, they can use a private care agency.

They can provide you with staff to help with housework and other things, but you will have to pay for their services. If you receive a Disability Living Allowance (DLA) you could use it for this type of service.
