If you have difficulties moving around your home, or feel you could benefit from some kind of extra support, here are some options we might be able to offer you.
Contact the community care team and they will arrange for someone to visit you in your home for a free assessment of all your care needs (for example, cooking, bathing, dressing and so on). These assessments can often help identify any other needs and support you may need around the home.
If you feel that you are having difficulties getting in and out of the bath, or need extra rails fitted to the outside of your home to make it easier for you, contact your Council Access Points. The office will be able to put you in touch with your local occupational therapist, who will visit you in your home and discuss with you what adaptations would benefit you.
If you feel vulnerable, or are an elderly person living on your own, you may be eligible for an alarm system to be fitted into your home. For more information and to see whether you qualify for the system, phone the Moray Lifeline and Telecare Service.
If you are aged over 60 or have a disability, you may feel more secure in sheltered accommodation. Sheltered accommodation has a warden on duty to give you support, which will help you continue living independently in your home. All homes are designed to best suit your needs and are fitted with an alarm system, which will alert staff if you need help.
